I put a Confer rack on the factory tracks. It's a great rack that is bullet proof. My rig carries 130 lbs of camping equipment and a Fiama 8 ft awning. After a couple years of use, I discovered a spiderweb of crack eminating from the track mounting screws. I replaced the factory tracks with Bushwacker heavy duty tracks. This system has held up for several years now.

Aluminess built my custom light wieght aluminum bumpers. The front bumper has a 12,000 lbs winch. The rear bumper has 2 swingouts. One for the spare, the other a lockable box used for our kitchen gear. Aluminess are the same people that build bumpers for SportMobile.

The Conferr rack is made in LA and sent to me UPS. Some assembly required.
