|Easy install to the ROLA carrier and integrated well with my 10 Yukon Denali. Bought an additional adaptor to fit the trailer plug on the truck but no issues.|
|My order came to me in only a couple of days. The item was packaged with bubble wrap and was very secure and protected. This is a great company with good products. I'll be using them again.|
|I'm glad I purchased these lights because I ofetn feel like people travel too close at night. Took about 40 minutes to wired up the way I wanted them too look. Just wish they would have located the connection off to the side or below so it didin't interfere with the cargo as much. A must have if you travel at night or in congested traffic areas.|
|Can not say the same as for the hitch carrier itself . Lights can be easily pushed out of it´s frame by any piece of cargo sliding on the carrier floor . In my vehicle , a Dodge Ram 3500 , provided cables were short for a state of the art installation .|
|This light kits fits the carrier very well and is very easy to install. However,the wiring that plugs into the lamp comes into the lamp from the back. That means that the wiring pokes out into the carrier right in the space where you'd want to put your luggage. It would have been better if the wiring pugged into the lamps from the side rather than from the back. That would have kept the wiring out of the way. Had it not been for this design flaw, I'd have given this 5 stars. Even so, the light kit worked as advertised and had decent fit/finish, so I'm still satisified with the purchase.|
|Used light kit to go with a Rola hitch carrier.
Very easy to install worked great.
|Good product. High Quality. Suggest adjusting the position of the retaining steel plate more forward to allow for back of light and wires to be protected within the steel railing. Current design projects into the cargo space and is easly damaged and wires dislodged. My solution was to fabricate a steel protector cage top minimize the impact of cargo. Still lost room, but at least it is a secure setup. |
As to the Cargo Carrier, it too is a nice bit of engineering (except the aforementioned lighting housing issue. The package arrived with box a bit cut up from the inside corners of the cargo container breaking out to the open and bending two bolt tabs and dinging up the p[owdercoat a bit. All still Ok, and likely less damage than I will be seeing after a feww thousand miles outback. The only real bummer was the receiver insert end of whole thing was missing the retainer pin holes. Oops:) I Called and reported this and was promptly offered a replacement . I was appreciative of that offer. In my cas however I chose to buy a $17 drill bit at HomeDepot and drill my own holes and avoid disassembly and repackage and waiting two days for the replacement. in the end, I rate the product excellent. QC on China Fab only a 2 out of 5 and ROLA Customer support Excellent at 4.9. ( it will be a 5.0 if I get a refund on the drill bit, but I'm not really looking for it.) Life is good.
|As ordered, and arrived on time. People have reported that Amazon.com partners tend to charge higher shipping. This is true. I found that my cost of shipping a very lightweight pkg 'next day', tripled the costs. My goof, but they could bring that down a little.
That said, this is a good product. Quick and easy to install, but you will also need an adapter to plug it into an existing outlet on your vehicle. That's expected for these kits. I'd like to see that as an option/add on with this kit.
However, based strictly on the kit...I give it the 5 stars.
|Initially placed product in my shopping cart with a very popular shopping website, shipping cost quoted more than the cost of the light assembly. Search web and found product on RealTrucks for same price with free shipping. This made it affordable. Ordered and received within a week. Product comes with all required wiring, tie straps, and wire protectors for complete installation. Great product and I would order from RealTrucks for my future needs.|
|Product was exactly what I had ordered, instructions for assembly were clear and easy to read.
Shipment was promt and I would order products in the future.
