The best looking racks out there so far. Good stuff. I was not crazy about the full height overland style rack when I first saw it, but it is growing on me quickly. My current plans don't require a rack of that type, but if I did, this would be one of my top choices.

The sports bar does not appear to add much function, but damn it looks good! Anyone have an idea on what the red, green/blue and white lights on the top bar might be for?

The more I look at this rig, the more I love it. I would kill to have it (or one like it) in my driveway.

This setup looks great. Only thing that seems odd to me is the rack on the truck bed is lower than the rack on the top of the cab. I think I'd prefer if they matched in height.

The lights are our version of chaser lights. They will be an optional accessory.

Appreciate the feedback. Not everyone will run all of our racks, so we designed the bed racks to match the cab's height.

Another option to achieve horizontal fluidity would be to mount another rack-platform on top of our Overland Rack. But that would be overkill.

@Maximus-3 what are the details on the aluminum panels for the bed? Appear to be modular and run on a track below the rail, smart! I was going to build some that sat On the rail, but then you can't tie shit down, NOT Smart lol....... Seriously, best bed/rack ideas at SEMA. take my money, lol.

The aluminum planks provide a deck (shelf, bunk-bed.) They can be adjusted/spaced according to your needs. They are an optional accessory feature of our rack solutions.

Are they available now? Do you have to use your rack to use them? I'm thinking of getting an alu-cab, but love those planks.

The planks are a part of our system. It's unlikely to be compatible with other bed racks.

Aluminum planks are a excellent option. Will you be developing a roll up cover option or tri fold cover option for the Sports Bar. One can only hope.

We'll have to discuss, when will these be out for purchase?

Love the racks!

@Maximus-3 is that bracket with the needle gauge, air chuck, and aux switches something you're going to be selling?
Thanks. The switch/gauge/chuck panel pairs nicely with our on-board-air setup.
Dual Viair compressors, 2-gallon tank, and Maximus-3 mounting bracket/skid.
