The best ever. Customer support was very helpful. I ordered the incorrect installation rack. Called and the return was fast and easy. I was helped to get the correct rack with the installation I wanted, Got it is one day and installed it myself. It looks great and was so easy to install. I will recommend etrailer and use them again for sure,

One year out, and I am still very happy with this installation kit. Still looks like new and has held securely to my car roof.

First I really like the rack.Very nice for the money. But the directions I feel stink. I felt they weren't clear, too much room for interpretation. I put them down and figured it out without the papers. Much faster.I followed where to position the rack on the auto , but that's about it. Very solid and secure. The money saved over other brands will buy you accessories.




by:

Very excited about the new rack. It was fairly easy to install and put together thanks to the great detail in the instructions. They were very specific with measurements for my vehicle.

perfect fit for the ford flex, couldn't be happier!

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Installed this and 65" Vortex Areo crossbars on a 2015 RAM 5500 chassis cab/crew cab. It is listed to fit 1500 to 3500 RAM's and neither Rhino-Rack or etrailer would confirm it would fit the 5500. My research suggested there was not much, if any difference, between the 3500 and 5500 crew cab, so ordered it any way. Installation was relatively easy, fit seemed to be good and have made multiple 200-300 mile trips with a 75lb kayak. Good price, great customer service and fast delivery through etrailer.


Comments
Neither Rhino-Rack nor etrailer.com have tested the roof rack on a 5500 ChassisCab, which is why we couldnt confirm the fit.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


We originally got this rack system (Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof Item #DK427) mostly for our Kayak racks on our 2015 Ford F-150, which worked great. Then we totaled our F-150 and the racks actually fit on our new 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 HD P/U. We took it on a 16,000 mile trip from the East Coast to Alaska with both 12 ft. kayaks on the top. Through the various speeds (sometimes up to 80 mph), weather conditions, and the high crosswinds of the mid-West, the racks help up perfectly. No issues or problems. I would recommend these to anyone.

Fairly easy installation. Read the instructions thoroughly before hand and get familiar with the parts. Take care when installing mounting studs onto car itself so as not to strip or cross thread them. Once installed they look great.

Fantastic! Very little noise on highway and sturdy.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I've had this Rhino Rack 2500 series for one year. I've outfitted the rack with one "J hook" style kayak holder and one "cradle" kayak holder. I am able to securely travel with two kayaks on the roof of my 2014 Honda Civic sedan without issue. During the one year I've had this rack I've traveled over 1,000 miles with two 12 foot+ kayaks on my roof. I can set cruise control at 70mph and not worry about the rack failing. I rate it four (4) stars because the cradles will sometimes move during a long drive and have to be readjusted. This is something that is more cosmetic in the since it looks slightly off, however it does not affect the racks security.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought these to be able to haul 4 kayaks on the roof of my 2017 Ram Mega cab while pulling our fifth wheel. We have use the Rhino Rack several times including a trip from Kentucky to Montana and back with no issues. I highly recommend the Rhino Rack for extra cargo capacity on top of your pickup. The instructions were good and installation was pretty straight forward. I plan to take the system off in the winter which will be easy to do.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Fit my Honda CRV perfectly and the whole kit was easy to install. The cargo box I ordered for in the racks perfectly. Of course there was some noise when traveling, and also reduced gas mileage, but that is to be expected. The very slight whistle when driving at higher speeds was easy to tune out. Service from etrailer was great and shipping was quick! I also appreciate all of the information and tutorials available. Would order from this company again.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought this last yr to haul my kayaks on my Toyota camry. Being 5'2", getting them on top of my SUV was next to impossible for me and my daughters. Since then, I have traveled from Michigan, all the way to the west coast with two 13' ft kayaks. These racks have been absolutely perfect in every aspect. I mounted them myself, and checked them regularly to see if they needed adjusted. Not once did they loosen or move. They with stood Traveling with speed limits reaching 80 mph on I84, along with the windy weather on our cross-country trip. My car moved around from the high winds, and the racks stayed put. These racks have by far reached and surpassed every expectation I had when purchasing them. I would not recommend another. Only thing I would recommend is showing installation for both front and back bars, since the measurements are slightly different for both. As I had to figure this out my self, after watching the installation video. Thank you Rhino for providing such a high quality product.

As you can tell by the photo, they never came. Thank you [vendor] for having a tow hitch basket in stock. They saved the day as my other storage option did not arrive, even with the additional $$ paid for faster shipping.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


From the minute Erica, from etrailer answered the phone and took my order, the process of getting my new Rhino-Rack 2500 was easy. Once my auto body shop installed the rack, I saw what a quality product the Rhino-Rack 2500 is. It fits my 2017 Toyota Corolla like it was from the factory. It looks great on the car and the functionality is excellent. I love it and highly recommend etrailer and Rhino-Rack products

Great product. I put the removable racks and brackets on my car as soon as I received them in the mail and have not removed them since. They are used everyday to hold my Yakima rooftop box.

Mounted on 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD. Excellent fit. Looks clean on truck. Sturdy. Small amount of noise. I would buy again and recommend to others. Price far better than some of the big names for the same quality.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


The boxes arrived undamaged.

Everything
was individually packaged, except the bolts, washers & lock washers. (They were floating around free in the box.)

There were also no decals stating Right Rear, Right Front, Left Rear or Left Front, like the instructions specifies.

The metal straps has scuff marks like they have been used.

One screw that attaches leg to rail was almost stripped out but I'm not taking it apart for a picture...

After over an hour installing the front, I took it apart and swapped out one leg and then it worked fine.
Since nothing was marked I had a front and a rear paired up which didn't work, of course. After that, the back bar installed in less than 5 minutes.

I'm confident if this would have been a new packaged item (with the decals) it would have taken less than 20-30 minutes to install.

I have 7 pics showing all I listed above but this form will not allow me to post the pics.

Still holding strong! even after 240+ lbs on a 1200 miles trip!! Would definitely purchase again..

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Excellent product! I installed this roof rack on my brand new 2020 Honda Civic Sport. Since my car has dual center exhaust, a hitch mount was not an option. I paired it with the RockyMounts Brass knuckles wheel on bike carrier. It was straight forward to install and for over a year everything has worked flawlessly. Obviously I take a hit on fuel economy especially at highway speeds with 2 bikes on the roof. I recently took a road trip and averaged about 31 mpg (would be about 38 mpg with no racks or bikes). However without bikes, I was averaged about 35 mpg which isn't too much impact. The Rhino Racks were a little bit less expensive than the competition but no compromises at all. Definitely recommend these Rhino Racks and RockyMounts Brass knuckles bike carrier.


Comments
After one year, everything is still working great. The only observation is that the car window seals are worn or slightly torn at the rack clamp locations. I guess the same issue could happen with any add on rack. Im not sure if this will become an issue or not but Ill keep an eye on it.
