I guess it isn't that bad because it is powder coated. Don't really need to put spare on top anyway. So was it worth the money tho? Would you have gone with anything different?I have the roof rack. It is nice. It is lighter then a dephep. It is also already powder coated. It works with my Yakima towers to fit my canoe and still have the rack on.
My two complaints are it is more expensive and you can't fit a spare tire in it.
The DepHep looks nice.... but im just worried about rusting.... Is the powder coat good? I had bought a rack from thule and it rusted in the first year.
That was me. Pics and info here: http://www.thenewx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=29844I also have the roof basket, the inside rack and the axe and shovel mount. The shovel and axe mount to the factory rail and is a nice set up. The interior rack is fine, but there is a thread where someone modified a jeep rack and spent about half for the same result. Now for the roof basket, it mounts on the side rails with a really neat set of clamps, however, there are a couple of issues that I had. One is that it is a bolted together unit, and the other is that the fore and aft rails are not the same length as the rack.
