This is the best solution for my truck needs by far. I knew I needed an optional shell hence I chose the soft- folding shell by softopper. I knew I needed a large foot print rooftop tent (that would extend from bed to roof). The part I needed in between is a rack that straddles the soft top and beefy enough to support large tent. The base station is perfect solution. It was easy install and has plenty of holes and slots for me to think of other creative cargo methods for my off tossing camping trips that I’m planning :). My kids and the misses love the truck we’ve built so far. Cheers to many adventures.
