    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Do you see any areas for front or rear strap tie downs? I don't. Looks cool just don't know how functional it will be.

    Did you need new struts? If not how did the stock ones hold up with the ladder's added weight?

    Right now they are holding up fine but I can feel the difference in weight. I'll probably end up upgrading them tho

    If you do upgrade what would you recommend? I found these on Amazon. Hopefully they will do the job.

    What's the secret to getting the top plate between the roof and trunk door with the ladder?

    Angle the plate towards the rack/ if it's snugged then pry up your truck door abit using a plastic trim remover to avoid scratching

    If anyone is interested in a rack sooner than the group buy Im selling mine. I live outside Sacramento. It's the current (V2) version. It has the black hardware, locally powder-coated and has extra tray and extra crossbar, aluminum mounting plates, edge trim and I also made a metal front fairing. $850. perfect condition. it makes my limited look a bit top heavy in my opinion and wife didn't like the look/wind noise with sunroof open (although the fairing cut most of that out). very functional but just too much rack for me.
