I bought one of these racks. It's the biggest piece of shit I could ever dream of, and I dreamt of a dinosaur getting eaten by a Godzilla-sized penguin, so I'm not short on imagination. First off, it's made of plastic. Plastic! I think they assembled it in the plumbing aisle of Home Depot and dropped it off at my house. Whatever material they're calling out is BS. Secondly, it didn't come with any hardware, and the instructions recommended lumber nails to install the rack into the hardtop. No thanks, not nailing a rack into the hardtop. Finally I got to install it and I was trying to move a mattress home. Lo and behold, because it doesn't have sufficient air damming, my Jeep lifted off the ground and flew into an overpass. Yep, into it. Straight shot. All that in addition to the expense.
So, in summary:
Plastic, not stainless steel, not even stained steel, but plastic construction.
Lumber nails do not work for installation.
Flew into an overpass.
Maybe this will draw the OP out of the woodwork?
