Just got my Billiebars installed! Less than 5 days from ordering I had them. I went with the 8 inch brackets with the clamp style mount to the bed. Made some adjustments to my best top trifold cover and added some adhesive foam from Home Depot around the brackets. The tonneau appears to be mostly watertight. So far I have a rhino rack ski/snowboard mount to fit a few fishing poles. FYI this rhino rack system slides right into the Billiebars, no clamp required (see pics). Thinking a platform system will go well on the other side to strap down some cargo. Might also add some bike mounts if there is room.

Overall for my initial impression I’m very happy. The Billiebars are definitely high quality and even with the bed clamp system (no trail rail) they are rock solid as I can shake the entire Jeep with them. I’ve been debating different racks and toppers for some time and this setup is low profile and allows use of a tonneau I already had.

Geeeeez this is awesome - loving that color and we personally love the 8" racks on the gladiator! Super stoked to see this build come to life! Which ski carrier part number is that, looks so clean!?
