    If your going to buy it from this place, I would because they are the same cost. Otherwise you will have to pay the piper later on for the tool box mount seperately.

    They called me yesterday and told me the back rack for my truck was on back order for 2 weeks. The also offered to substitute the "back rack" for a "pro rack" at the same price.

    The pro rack is made by stk and all the "back rack" attachements work with it. It will be here tomorrow.

    My kid has a cold so I am not sure I am going to be able to install it tomorrow because we are keeping her home from school. Going to call the doctors office tomorrow. 50% of the student body was absent today.

    Before you make fun of a bunch of kids skipping school, I am not talking about highschool kids. I am talking about kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Seems a couple youngsters went to school with the flu and now half the school is sick!

    Those are really good prices. I may get one next summer. I just haven't decided if I like the look of the toolbox sitting up so high.

    If you put the 2 next to each other and took the stickers off you would never know the difference.

    Cost wise, the Pro Rack was more expensive for my truck- 225.00 at that site. I ordered the back rack. They called and said it was on back order and offered the pro rack for the cost of the back rack!

    I just have to pick up the light bar bracket now.

    Here's the difference between the two racks (which are identical in design):

    Pro Rack: US made - more expensive on the rack cost - cheaper cost on accessory mounts

    Back Rack: Canadian made - more expensive accessory mounts.

    I just received my Pro Rack as well and am real happy with the fit/finish of it. I'm finishing some custom add-ons and will post pics once done.

    Here's my new Pro Rack installed with fabbed light boxes for LED tail lights and new LED 1000 lumen work lights that we're carrying:

    I'm real happy with the quality, but if I were to do it again, I would go with the regular brackets instead of the toolbox brackets because of the additional height it raises the box. And, just like every other Canadian made product I've ever tried to order, the Back-Racks were Back-Ordered! ussmileyflag

    And...Kudos to Anthony for great customer service!

    I love those lights!! I just had pilot driving lights mounted on mine. They are nice because they are small like fog lights, and they have led turn signals built into them.

    I will get some pics up soon. I am trying to get all my accounts staked and I need to get my plow deflector mounted, all while dancing between rain drops!
