I received back in December and just got to installing last week. I had all the hardware in individually labeled bags. A couple extra of everything which was nice. Went together super easily. Slapped it on top of the rig without much issue. Spent a little time centering because I wanted it perfect. Everything went super smooth with my Prinsu from order, shipping, and install. Maybe I'm the anomaly but I'm super happy with how it all went and would order again.

people with SSO, did you guys order additional cross bars, or did you feel the standard amount was sufficient for normal loads ie pelican cases, plywood..

Additional load bearing points in 4th Gen roof rack?

Hey all! Done a lot of research on racks for 4th gens. Everything I've found only utilizes the existing 8 bolts in the 4 corners of the stock rack. I'm used to rigs with protruding rain gutters that and have 3 or 4 attachment feet per side to really distribute the load of the roof rack.

Has anyone found of built a rack with additional points or contact to the truck? More anchor points under rain cutter cover? Perhaps just a foot that touches down on roof or in rain gutter that doesnt bolt down? Other ideas?

Thanks!

I've had my SSO rack for about 2 months now and overall I'm quite happy with it. I ordered the extra rails and everything on mine is black - crossbars, hardware, etc. The grinding could have been better in some places on the frame pieces; quite sharp if you aren't careful when grabbing on. I have also found it difficult to get additional hardware that's compatible with their crossbars, but I've ordered the rotopax mount, eyebolts and extra hardware SSO sells to solve that issue. You just can't find these pieces at your local hardware store. I do have some additional wind noise now vs. the stock rack with 2 crossbars. But I think that's probably the case with any full-length roof rack. I really like how low profile the SSO is. Overall, I'm very happy with the SSO. So far, I have an ARB awning on the driver side, a solar panel on the rear, with 1 3-gallon Rotopax and a Pelican in front of that. Working on how to mount the FrontRunner camp table at the front. I do sometimes wish I got the FrontRunner Slimline and could mount the camp table below the rack, but the SSO rack looks much better in my opinion. One possible improvement SSO could make would be to route out the ends of the crossbars like FrontRunner does so that you could add/remove connectors without having to remove the crossbar one side. I have also found SSO's customer service to be great. Overall, I would definitely recommend the SSO rack.

For anyone interested in current Prinsu lead times, I ordered a Full Length Non-Drill (8/30). Received Order confirmation today (9/3) that it should ship 9/10. Pretty happy so far with everyone Ive dealt with. Will update when possible.

Try posting in the 4th gen section friend. Better yet use the search feature before you start. "4th Gen Roof Racks" Best of luck.
