    Keep in mind that, according to the directions and Ford's website, when using the Yakima Overhaul Hd with the Embark LS cover that the capacity is limited to 300LBS highway and 180LBS when off-roading. The Embark LS is the Retrax with a Ford emblem so I would imagine it would be the same as far as load capacity.

    I've looked for this rack but can't find it...or it's out of production?

    RCI makes a 12" and 18" rack that's pretty solid...

    Hi Julie thanks for the pics I'm looking at this same racking system its nice to see it fitted on the same colour Ranger as mine. I noticed you also have the hood deflector as well, would you mind posting a pic from the front so I could get a look at that and share which deflector you purchased?

    I'm almost done with my custom rack. Just lights and mounting to be done. I made it so that my retrax and the rack would work together. There was nothing on the market that did all I wanted, so I made my own.IMG_3037.jpg IMG_3039.jpg

    That is an awesome looking rack. How are you attaching it to your truck? Photo on the truck?

    Awesome looking set up..... I am looking at the Leitner rack set up for mine. Are you still happy with it?

    Did your radio reception suffer from removing the antenna to fit the RTT?

    Oh! Someone got a new RTT! Nice... I don't remember If I have asked you, but are your Rim's 17's or 18's? If they are the 18's... what size are those tires?
