Default Rhino Rack Pioneer! Wow. Rough install.


So spent a couple days working on this thing. What a pain. Poison spyder fender flares and liners were probably easier.

Used lots of tools. Had to modify tools to make them work.

Really wish the instructions were better. Left over parts scare me. Im fairly crafty and have all the necessary tools and know how but this thing sucked to install.

Anyone else with comments or issues regarding this rack?

I don't have the platform system but do have the. 3x crossbar setup. It's been on the Jeep now for about 2 years and aside from an occasional leak or two when things get icy( because I'm an idiot and didn't bother siliconing around each hole) I have no complaints. I had 0 issues getting the backbone mounted to the top and everything bolted up. Measure 10 times drill once sort of thing. I got it all installed in a matter of 2-3 hours. Where did you get hung up?
