Judging by what's sitting just inside your garage, you must have had a hell of a house warming...

You have definitely sold me doing my wheels now that I've seen them on a yellow one.

Thanks guys. i wondered too about the "white's out" on the wheels. I think it would be too much black on a yellow vehicle. The wheels would seem to disappear.

It's a DepHep Rack and they are selling like hotcakes. Learn the whole story on this thread;
Old Navy here to save the day again!

and Dephep is great to work with. If you buy one from him, he will make it custom to exactly what you want. AND, the quality is amazing. I am sooo much happier with this rack than if I would have bought a yakima or thule...

truck looks good.

Did you paint the rack with duplicolor yourself?
yes i did...and i either suck at prep/painting or the duplicolor doesn't like to stick to bars that small because it is starting to peel. I think it is some of both.

I think the duplicolor just doesn't want to stick to that small of a surface area. Both of us can't be THAT bad at prep and painting.

That would then make three of us who are bad at it. I don't think so, mine is also starting to peel/chip, so I'm thinking of line-x'ing it. AzXMan stated his worked out great with line-x and I don't like the two tone color, (rust/charcoal), look.
