Thanks, if you get a chance to look I would love to know. I have been reluctant simply because of this. I have been curious if things have gotten any better since I had my last full-length rack twenty years ago.

The wrap is a fantastic idea. I too had considered getting my whole roof done, it is just that black would not be so great living in the desert. LOL, I considered white, holy crap my truck would look pretty comical. Having the hood matte black is already a bit. BUT just having a clear strip laid down on the leading edge... :thumbs: thanks for the mini brainstorm

That's good -- although anecdotal. Having the bolt exposed is a clear entry point for water. Even if the water doesn't make its way into the roof, it can do damage to the bolt inside the threading.

I'd definitely recommend putting plumbers tape on the bolt and sealing the exposed portion of the bolts with silicone. I don't think it makes sense for anyone to infer that's a ridiculous suggestion.

I filled the bolt hole with silicone as well and put it all over the bolt threads. My OEM rack bolts had orange silicone on them as well.

No one “inferred” anything. I just stated, no leaks here since install. Period.

We got ours on! It went really well too. Without filming we could have finished it up in under two hours easy. We're really pleased with how sturdy it is. Here's the video if you're interested in seeing it first hand:

SSO Roof Rack light cut out or not

For those of you guys that have lights, any regrets? Should I order the light cut out for the future? My reason for ordering the rack is to haul kayaks and that's my only concern right now. Any issues with annoying hood glare? Thanks for the help.

I added side and rear lights but I did not do the front light bar. It seems almost everyone who does the roof mounted light bar mentions hood glare or windshield glare. especially if its dusty. I just couldn't see spending $1k + on a light bar for a location that would be more of a hindrance than usable.

I do have an in-grill light bar that I use instead.

Just washed the 4r today and finding that the bars collect a lot of water and it slowly drips out causing streaks on the sides unless I keep wiping it every couple hours. I think I need to either drill some drain holes or vacuum the water out after every wash

I don't remember having this experience, but I just returned home from a trip and will be washing the vehicle tomorrow, so I'll keep a look out.

In the rain since the car is staying wet its not noticeable or I just didn't think about it. But when I am drying it off and there is a pristine shine and I see a slow steady stream of water going down for a couple hours it really became noticeable for me. then looking into the t-slots they were all pretty full of water.

Blow the rack bars off with a leaf blower.... or rinse with deionized water (won't streak in the first place).

[EDIT] You might have meant the front LED light bar? Far as I know, thats still an option, the side lights are what I am talking about.

I ordered one withOUT the cut outs, and was sent one with cutouts,
when I contacted them they said they are all the same now and have cut outs.
but they never updated the site.
I used these, they are the cheapest option that are known to fit, seem well made, plenty bright.

Just an update on the feedback here from the past. Over the past month, month and a half we have been working on the following:

-Better customer service
-Better correspondence
-Better quality control
-Decreasing lead times
-Hiring/Training/Maintaining our new shipping department

While we have slowed down on some of our lead times on bumpers due to a huge sale, we have actually started to improve our lead times on the roof rack situation. Currently our roof racks are about 6 weeks out, we have dramatically cut down the lead times on our roof racks while focusing more on the quality of them. We appreciate all the feedback from you guys, and for being a valued customer.

-Lee
