so the rack itself is amazing i already ordered a few more things to add to it.i would love to get the rear and side doors but i can’t afford then at the moment but its an amazing rack
Rack was delivered 8 weeks after ordering. Some parts had metal gouges and not just chipped paint. Instructions were not included, instead it was a piece of paper with a QR code that didn’t work for me. Thankfully a google search helped me find the instructions, although a large print out would have been easier than my iPhone. The thread locker they provided, were in individual single use pouches and were hard upon delivery so I had to go and purchase my own. Additionally, the extrusion pieces had metal debris left in the threaded holes and forced me to clean out the debris with a pick in several. The instructions forced you to read ahead to verify what parts were used where because the sizes and types of hardware listed for different models don’t match your vehicle’s rack and it can be difficult to understand. Additionally, the winged support brackets aren’t mentioned in the instructions. Lastly, the dimensions of the extrusions were not always accurate and was too tight at times which caused me the most frustration. The HT T-nuts occasionally would have to be hammered using a rubber mallet and 16” 1/4” extension to be put into place. This created metal shards and curly metal debris, chipping the paint as it was worked into position. I wish their was less gap between the rear window and the rack.
It’s lightweight, feels strong. Time will tell on its reliability and construction/design, but for now I’m disappointed in the assembly/quality portions.
Finally was able to install my rack and soft cover combo. Not intentionally made to work together and it has its kinks I need to work out but with some (I hope) temporary adjustments. I was able to get both installed with the goal I had in mind. I’ll be ordering some additional items to dial in the length of bars and such I need (couldn’t be done ahead of time unfortunately since there isn’t a combo made to match together yet) but over all happy with the product. Only room for improvement was the instruction manual as it wasn’t specific to the Maverick so some parts didn’t say optional and I thought I was missing pieces and the mounts didn’t match so I had to look at the review photos to make sure I was a installing correctly.
So far I'm loving the XTR1 rack on my Maverick. It was relatively easy to assemble, looks great, and is the exact size I wanted. I couldn't get the right height anywhere else. I wanted a rack that would sit juuuuuust below the height of the cab to stay out of the wind, but easily let me carry my SUPs and Kayaks with a carrier. I ordered it at 16" high and it's exactly where I wanted it! I'm giving 4.5 stars for two reasons. 1) the top support braces don't match the rest of the rack. They are the "clear" aluminum finish vs the black anodized finish for the rest of the rack. 2) A few of the anodized pieces had very minor blemishes/rubs and one threaded end was not cleared of waste aluminum (I had to completely remove the piece from the rack to figure out why the bolt wasn't inserting, but was able to clear the waste easily enough). The blemishes are tiny, so not visible unless closely inspecting the pieces. I got the wide brackets so I could use my soft rolling tonneau as well. So far it looks like everything will fit fine, but I'll know for sure once I get the cover back on this weekend.
We have the 13” version of this rack and love it for our RTT/camping setup so far. Highly recommend this bed rack! The Xtrusion team is amazing. It’s great to see more aftermarket accessories coming out for the Maverick & can’t wait to do more with our XTR1.
