I equipped my Gladiator with this rack. Appearance wise, it is aggressive, it adds personality, and it enhances the silhouette of the truck. However, my one complaint is the noise generated at speeds of 50+ mph. It starts with a whistle that gradually gets louder and more high pitched as you accelerate. Once you reach the 65-70 mph range, the whistle evolves into a howl. It is an extremely loud and obnoxious sound, as though you’re driving through a wind tunnel. I would gladly purchase a buffeting kit for this rack if it was offered. For the price though, I really canot complain; you get what you pay for.
Item was easy to put together. It takes some time and I would recommend doing it with 2 people. Follow the directions because I tried to piece it all together and then swing it over the top for install but that backfired.
The rack is extremely sturdy and I highly recommend it for the budget. It gets the job done for half the price of the higher end racks.
