Don't have it? Sucks to be you! Get it NOW! You wont regret it!What makes this great you say? Well let me tell you! You re getting 3 great products is at one heck of a deal! Go price out a cargo basket and then add the cost of adding two additional bike racks. Yes folks, for under $300.00 you easily get $500.00 worth of products. ,,,,Pros: ,,Ginormous,,Great price,,Solid materials,,Integrated bike fork mounts,,Easy assembly and installation,,All welds and powder coating seem very durable,,Integrated sticker board that doubles a a wind deflector.,,Looks Damn good on my 2005 OBXT,,,,,,Cons (negligible): ,,Security (I added Tufnut Tamperproof Nuts in addition to their fasteners to prevent theft),,Locking skewers (Bike security. I added my own along with a cable),,,,*Note: Once assembled, I used automotive gasket sealer around the open joints/seams to make the steel tubes waterproof and prevent the possibility of rusting.,,

There are obvious places for improvement, but it gets the job done.It's super easy to put together. Two screws to attach the front to the back. Six screws to attach the windfaring plate onto the front. 4 U-clamps to attach it to the roof rack. BUT the hand nuts that go onto the U-clamps take FOREVER to screw on. I ended up finding a huge socket that fit it so that I could use a socket wrench, which made it a little easier. Kuat, if you're reading, just use normal bolts so we can use a tool.,,Also, the flimsy plexiglas windfaring plate seems a little weak. The wind whistles up underneath the glass, but this is easily fixed by sealing the gap between the glass and the bar. Duct tape can even do the trick. Kuat, make this into one piece.,,Also, it doesn't look the same as the picture. Not sure if I got the same product. The back end goes back down like the front end, not up like you see in the picture.,,The box it came in was extremely torn up, which had me skeptical, but the rack was in fine condition and I didn't notice any issues, so that was good.
