I was skeptical ordering this because I couldn't find many reviews or videos on this rack but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. I chose this rack because it was the only one I found that was universal and fit my 2018 Silverado but also because it was tall enough that things put on top of the rack clear the roof of the truck. In my case a canoe. It came in two boxes but both were packaged very well. Every piece was inside a piece of plastic and then cradled by Styrofoam to keep it from moving anywhere. Installation took me about 4 hours by myself. It came with instructions but they could have been clearer. The hardware that came with it was sorted in labeled bags. There was a bit of trial and error on my part because the instructions didn't tell you what order to do things. I was able to install it with the clamps that were provided which saved me from drilling in my bed rails. The quality of the rack is great. All the welds look great, the powder coating looks good all around. Everything is nice and rounded, the tie down loops are smooth, there's no sharp spots anywhere. With it full assembled it is very sturdy and has no play at all. When you grab any part of the rack and push or pull, the truck will rock back and forth before you feel any give in the rack. I'm excited to get some overlanding accessories and get them mounted on the crossbars.
Thanks for the extensive review, and glad to hear the new Freedom Bed Rack is working out for you!
I love the product but the installation paperwork not very useful. I had to guess how things needed to go on my 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500. I did have a box of tie down loops that I still do not know where they go. I would recommend this product. The structure is very very sturdy.
Glad to hear you are satisfied with the rack! Please email a pic of the tie down loops to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can take a look at them for you.
Overall once installed the product looks nice and feels very solid, couple of areas where is could be improved..No discernable wind noise that I could here after install. 1, The Instructions are horrible... pretty much a guessing game on what goes where from a hardware perspective. 2. on a full size truck it would be nice if the cross bars were just a bit longer. on a RAM 2500 short bed the front crossbars wont go all the way to the lowest setting do to interference with the crossbar ends. 3. The length Cross bars are only 47 inches max so if you have a "real" short bed or a long bed the rack will be more centered on the bed with space in front of and behind the vertical pillars.
We appreicate the feedback, and have shared your comments on the insturctions with the manufacturer. I know they are working on a more formal install guide.
So far my experience is great. The racks was delivered within a week from the order and in good shape. They look great and are super solid.
Glad to hear you are enjoying your new bed rack! Thanks for the feedback.
