    I'm looking to install the rear window Molle panels and had some questions even looking through the forum.
    1. Which one do you like the best (sturdy, ease of mounting, etc)
    2. Once installed can the cargo cover still be used?

    I got the Rago ones, I really like them they are really sturdy!. But I think they are all pretty much the same see which ones you like better there are 3 or 4 companies that make them. No the cargo cover can't be used any more!
    Quick note if you are thinking about doing one of the ceiling attics might want to do everything at the same time bc it attaches in the same place.

    Thanks for the info. I use the cover frequently and I am not sure I want to give that up.

    I also have the Rago's and they work well. Got them on a group buy years ago. I don't have a use for the cover since I carry so much shit all the time so i cannot comment on that. I was looking at the Rago shelf but wow do they want a lot of money for that thing, so I will pass.

    I have only found panels from Rago Fab and Victory 4x4. Are they any more I am missing?

    Heard good things about orangeboxx.

    The guy who built my rack is trying to make some. I won’t pay the price people want for them so I’ll wait until a cheaper version is available.

    I have orangeboxx on my passenger side and victory on my drivers. The orangeboxx has the cool TRD inlay but sits off the window farther than need be, but is bigger than the victory by a little. The Victory has a better mounting system and mounts closer to the window. By a VERY VERY slim margin, I like the victory, but only from a functional standpoint.

    Broke down and ordered the Rago set with the rack for the attic. Save $100 with their Halloween promo. Came out to $670 total, painful, but I need the space. Thanks to everyone for their input.

    Thanks oh and by the way I was meaning to reply that I got the Victory Molle Panel and I love it. The only issue is I have a 3rd row so it doesn't sit flush but other than that the quality is superb as well as their customer service.

    Ive been wanting to get something from Rago but kept missing their sale. Thanks again

    Attic rack arrived today. My complaints about the Rago Fab panels and rack are...
    1. Screws and nuts are different sizes between the window panel and the attic rack.
    2. The only instructions is an 4:45 min. youtube video that is not very clear.

    If you order both items wait and install at once. Heavy duty brackets ship with the attic rack that must be installed on the window panels. So the window panels I got and installed needed to be removed.
    Notes for easier install:
    Install nuts on the top side of the attic rack and screw heads facing down. Near impossible to get an Allen key in some of those places. The brackets that mount to the window panels must face a specific way so it is better to dry fit everything out of the car first to verify orientaion and alignment. I will post pics tomorrow morning.

    Sorry for the delay in getting the pics out. This is mounted at the highest position. There is about 5" of height at the center of the roof from the rack. The rack can be lowered in 1.5" increments all the way to the bottom of the molle panel. The shelf will be home for jumper cables, blanket, a snatch strap to start. I use rolled velcro hold things in place. Due to the rear head rest placement I do not have visability issues from items mounted to the window panels, as I cant really see the windows anyway. This is from the rear view mirror perspective.20191113_141725.jpg

    Nice......question,

    Will this system heat up behind the glass and continue to radiate heat after the vehicle sits in the sun for periods of time? Is that even a problem, asking for my dogs.

    I live in Tucson, AZ so car interiors are always hot. They may retain some heat longer that the rest of the interior. I will check when it gets warm again.

    https://www.covercraft.com/us/en/product/carhartt-precision-fit-custom-seat-covers.CGT-GTCA

    The headrest are really tight so I did not put them on for fear they will be permanently misshaped. I have covers for the front seats as well but I have not installed them. The rears are durable, easy to install, cover the entire seat and fit snug. They are a heavier canvas like fabric, your cohorts in crime would like these better https://www.covercraft.com/us/en/product/carhartt-seatsaver-custom-seat-covers.SSC-SSCA
    These can be washed in a washing machine. The others are foam backed and should only be spot treated.

    I paid full price for them, I do not work for them, just an honest, first hand opinion.

    Love that shelf but I cannot get over the price they are asking for what it is. Maybe it's hard to manufacture somehow or they are just cashing in on a badass product, don't know? I have the Rago side racks picked up on a group buy and really like them.

    This is a work truck and I need the cargo area for tools and equip so the rack was need to hold gear. I did save about $100 on the order during their Halloween sale, that helped justify the purchase.
