Easy installation on my crate, nice black color. Just a solid set of rod holders that you can't go wrong with! Brings extra hardware if necessary!
Fit and finish on this product is great. However, I think it may have been a bit over- engineered. I see no reason why it is not pre-assembled as the spacing between the horizontal supports is a fixed length. Additionally, the middle rod holder doesn't have the same hole diameter as the two outside holders, so the supplied hardware will not work without additional drilling. I suspect this is due to handles on the crates, and I remedied this by using normal self- tapping screws I had on hand. They should be provided with the kit.
The intention for the middle rod holder was that it only attached to the frame and not through to the crate. With that said there was some hardware issues that have been addressed with the manufacturer.
Good product but the middle screw and nyloc nut protrude from the back of the cross bar approx. 2-3mm. Not sure how I will solve this but I may have to get longer bolts and also drill a center mounting point. This would necessitate drilling 6 holes in my JKrate instead of 4 holes. Poor quality control when packaged.
Rod holder is strong and works great. Only issue I had was that 2 of the 6 bolts were different lenghts and too short.
