Any updates on MPG? Any issues?

Can you also add more photos? Straight on view from back and front?

Also - any idea if the factory bed extender will still work with the rails installed?

I have seen about a 1-1.5 mpg loss.

I have added the Malone center rack tie down point to allow me carry at least 4 boats with ease.

Thank you! This is the best looking rack system I've seen so far so I'm really leaning towards picking it up. I just wish it could be dropped lower than the cab height when needed. It looks like the bars only stick out about 5-6" past the body which is nice.

I have the factory bed extender in mine so not sure the rail system will work with it, I'll have to continue to research.

Sorry to bring this back up from the dead and I understand that you intend on keeping this installed on your vehicle at all times, but could you describe how easy/difficult it is to remove and reinstall the uprights?

I am very interested in a similar set up, but I want to install and remove for each use. I generally boat 3 times a month in the summer.

I do this currently with my rail mounted (top of bed topper) racks. It takes me about an extra 5 minutes to snap them into position and then I put the boats on. As soon as the boats come off, the racks also come off.

I assume they slide into the rails from the rear - do they bind easy when moving to the forward position or is it pretty effortless? Do they use threaded square nuts? I see thumb screws (which is promising).

There is one on each side of the bed. Once you loosen and remove them you can loosen and slide the racks and tie downs out of the rail.

I have chosen not to cover these, but you can slide the rear rack back far enough to cover the Allen head if choose.

That’s it!

I pulled the back rack Qoff yesterday to install a couple of tie downs on each side of the bed. Easy Peasy!

Looks great! Are those additional tie downs on the bottom rails sold from Truxedo Elevate? If so how much did they' cost if you dont mind me asking?

They came with the Angry Elephant Racks if I recall. You’ll have to verify that with the seller. I bought it all as a package so I don’t recall if they were with Rail or the Racks.

I ended up going with the gator sfx. If I want a rack, I'll probably go the billiebars route that work with the on the rail covers.
Tell me more about these Billiebars. I'm assuming if you want to fold / roll up your tonneau you have to remove at least the back bar? I feel like if it was maybe 6in higher you could probably roll it up while keeping everything installed. I was imagining a short roof box on something similar, but having the crossbars elevated high enough to be able to roll the tonneau up to at least 2/3 open or something before the roll is too fat to go under the front bar. So many options, probably a blessing that mine was delayed so long. Now I can watch all of you buy stuff and be better informed!

I emailed them asking about the Revolver X4 fitment.
Do these brackets mount to the Maverick's inside existing bracket? So many questions...

Another user on MTC has these installed (those are his photos on the BB website), but I'm pretty sure they are an 'L' shaped bracket that clamps the the factory bed rail. They don't use the existing C channel mount.
