Ease of Use/Installation:
"I bought this rack for a 1997 F350 CC LB truck with cab height camper shell. I picked this brand specifically because it is aluminum - for the look, durability and ease of modification. The rack came with 28" long legs and because it is aluminum it was easy to cut them to 25" and drill new holes for mounting. This modification put the crossbars at 2.75" above my camper shell, which looks much better than 5.75" above it. Also makes it easier to fit thru an 8' tall garage door. Directions were concise and installation was simple. I removed one bolt from each crossbar H bracket and used eye bolts for use as tie down points. One cross-bar H bracket did not have the holes pre-drilled on the bottom of one side, but it was not a problem since I was set up to drill for my mods anyway. I use the rack primarily to haul kayaks and the length of it is perfect for 12' long ones. Shorter ones also fit well too. I have since added 2 additional crossbars and the front wind deflector from Hauler Racks."
