    It holds up great I haven't had it long on my Denali but had it for 2 years on the 450 and didn't fade at all when it's washed it still looks new and it's not a cheap paint job either I bumped it a few times putting the light bar on and it didn't flake the paint off ✔️

    I grabbed the deezee on ebay for good price and easy transaction. I finally got it mounted and am in the middle of getting the toolbox back on which proved to be a little challenging. When I am done I'll post a picture.

    Rack has been great. I used some toggle anchors make sure the tool box I have on top and the rack are very securely mounted. They worked out well.

    Next step is to mount some lights, perhaps at the inside corners using a simple bracket and some T-nuts. Anyone have any tips? Run the wiring through the channel in the rack to corner and then into the cab?

    I believe you mentioned pics. And how did you end up wiring it? I may get the matching rear rack for ladders if the need arises.

    Trying to decide on a rack for my truck, so I'm looking forward to your opinions.

    I have a black louvered Dee Zee cab rack.
    I installed the larger Dee Zee light mounts, and placed a CPS Authority mini light bar with magnetic mounts on those.
    This allows me to be able to remove the light bar from the top of the rack (and temporarily place it on the cap roof), if I have to load extension ladders, staging, lumber, etc. - onto the cab rack (I also have a back rack rear bed mount bar, to support things).

    The cab rack, light mounts, and mini light bar magnetic bases are super solid and good quality.

    With the Tbolts I used for mounting my toolbox on top of it I found it to be very secure. It uses some hardware through the stake pockets in standard configuration. I beefed it up with my box.
