I've gotten a ton of questions about this roof rack and I finally got it installed today! The whole kit is superbly built, and the amount of accessories that they make to attach to this particular tray is mind boggling lol
I even got to test it out on the Interstate today, and I'm happy to report that there is a VERY minimal increase in wind noise. And I do mean minimal.

This was the first kit they installed for the new mounts that they designed for the U.S. version of the twins... so it should be ready for purchase in about 4 to 6 weeks!


On to the pics!
(I will post another pic a little bit later showing the LED light bar attachment installed :wink2: )

What is th carrying capacity of the rack?
Just sent an email to them asking the same thing lol With these mounts being the first ones installed on this truck, they need to inquire with the engineering dept. But I'll post up when they reply back!

That's a **** good looking truck! Also rhino rack is an excellent product! I used the bars an the now gone Chevy sonic. Also with the gutter mount on your build it cleans up the look.

Wicked! Can't wait till they release it to the public. I'm hoping they have a basket - although the tray looks sick too.
They have front and side rails that attach to the tray to make it a basket :wink2:

Put the Rhino-Rack LED light bar brackets to use! Mounted up a 30" Totron bar to the front of the rack...

where do you get the power for that?...from the cab taillight?


I haven't wired it up yet. But it's going straight to the battery with an inline fuse, and I'll be wiring up a switch for it in the cab

Why did you choose Totron and what is that thing on the back of the rack that looks rolled up. There are so many brands of lights now it makes it hard to choose.
Totron was recommended to me by a couple of SEMA veterans. Apparently Totron makes a majority of the LED bars on the market, and they just get re-branded and sold at different prices.

The roller on the back of the rack is to assist loading items (lumber, ladders, etc) onto the rack without damaging the rack or your load.

Sweet good know, thanks! There so many out now it's ridiculous! Ahh gotcha, that seems nice to have.

Man the more you do to your truck the more I wish I could do the same... stupid low clearance parking lots :(

Looking great!


haha Yea, I know of a few parking garages that I can no longer utilize. Small price to pay though, IMO

Rhino-Rack is finally starting to update their website for their Colorado/Canyon specific kits! Still waiting on them to upload the Pioneer Platform kit, but it should be happening any day now. They do have a couple cross bars on their though... they'll hold things like bike carriers, hard/soft cargo carriers, etc.
