|I recommend these - they make the rack a lot more substantial and also provide more ways to tie down your loads|

|This is a very decent product. Might be available from other sources under different names for slightly less money, but it was a good experience buying from RealTruck.|
I'm a semi-retired builder, and bought this for a little Tacoma 4x4 I recently got as a run-around, for lumber, kayaks, surfboards, etc.
I also have a Silverado 4x4 Crew cab with a System One rack Contractor rig, which is still among the best high-end lumber racks as my primary work truck.
This Vanguard unit is well made, has a thick black finish, and goes together easily. It locks together with SS set screws and so far is tight and squeek/rattle free. I do wish it came with cleats to anchor tie-downs, but it was easy to add some. It is very rudimentary in comparison but is honest value. Note that it is designed with cantilevered mounting plates so you can slide your cap (camper shell) in or out. I have an A.R.E. aluminum cap with built in rack that I use, the point being that even when the cap is removed I still have a rack to use for above-mentioned stuff. I recommend getting the extra bars to tie front and back towers together-it just makes everything better. Good luck!

|This is a great item for clearing a camper shell . The only problem I had was that there was a welding slag inside one tube wish made using the lower level impossible, Luckily I needed the higher level. Quality control needs to check for that.|

|The rack we found was perfect for our use. It came in just as we had expected and was just what we needed. Great company to order from.|
