    Looking for a stock black roof rack. My '15 stock rack is silver and I'm in between plasti-dipping what I've got but figured there was someone in the forum that had perhaps upgraded their rack and looking to off load what was previously on there. Picture of the rig below :)IMG_1745.jpg

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.

    I can only speak to plasti dip.

    Very easy as long as you prep and spray over straight lines back and forth(per surface), wait to dry then repeat as many layers as you want.

    Does collect dirt but nothing water cant take off.

    I was WAY over protective with the mount areas, but honestly just held a medium piece of cardboard to catch backsplash when doing the rails.

    Pictured with Yakima Load Warrior + extension

    Edit: the suff is super easy to peel off (when layered) and rubs off with some elbow grease and a microfiber towel.

    Did you remove to plastidip or just cover and spray while mounted? Id rather take this route if possible

    Left everything on.

    Washed the truck before hand

    If you want to you can be extra careful and lay a "drop cloth" (something like painter's plastic super thin roll of the stuff) cut out around the rack and cross bars carefully, and use wide painter's or light masking tape to hold everything down as a back splash.

    That was way too much work when I just did the 4 mount areas so when I did the rails i just avoided spraying downward and used cardboard in 1 hand to catch my excess spray.

    The rest rubs right off.

    I can't say that I use the rack, but I do like the idea of using something a little more durable (why I am hesitant to spray plasti-dip in the first place). I thought surely my local dealers would have some black roof racks laying around, but it's been hard to come by after a few months.

    I just made a custom rack, then waiting for a Gobi which I should get later this year. I'll consider parting with my stock, all black rack for 2018, not sure what these all fit. I powder coated the rails from silver to black so its all black. How much do these go for?

    No clue. The 6 parts new adds up to several hundred dollars.

    If you are interested in buying mine, I'll sell it for $175, plus shipping. PM me, shipping shouldn't be more than $50-$75. I am in SLC, UTAH. The rack is off a 2018, you can check if it will fit.

    Blacked out grill and rear emblem. More on the way!
    I have 12k miles on my plasti dipped front and rear. No issues with fading, peeling or chipping. If I remember correctly, I put on 8 coats. That said, I didn't do my roof rails yet and I don't use them. So if they're used, I could see how it might chip
