Product came in 3 days and was trackable. Very easy to assemble and solid. Fit right on my Honda CRV cross bars like it was made for the car. Well done!

5 Stars Nice fit on a 4Runner

Shipping was right on time and the price was good on the APEX Heavy Duty Steel Cargo Basket. It fit really nice on a 2016 4Runner, and assembly / installation was quick and easy for two people to do. Looks good and is very sturdy.

5 Stars took my Volvo XC90 to a different place

I bought the rails and roof cargo basket for my 12 year old Volvo XC90 and made her look like new and ready for the beach. All was easy to put together and looks great on the SUV. I almost paid $400 for the whole set on another website....glad I came here and saved a ton of money and made something 12 years old look new again!

5 Stars Awesome!

I received my luggage rack 2 days ago and put it together in less than an hour. Can't wait to use it this winter as coming summer. Fits perfectly on my 2015 Grand Cherokee.

Very sturdy. I wanted a more stable and sturdier roof top for a golf cart.

5 Stars Fits my Jeep Wrangler perfectly

Gary from WA wrote (September 22, 2015):

Shipping was fast. I opened the box as soon as it arrived, all the parts were there. Assembly took about 20 minutes from opening the box to tightening the last nut, much faster than I thought it would take, and I took my time doing it. Never even looked at the instructions it was so easy. Once on my Jeep Wrangler hard top, it was easy to use the hardware to secure the basket to the cross bars. This basket is the perfect size to carry a couple of extra gas cans, chain saw and some assorted tools for the trail. Well worth the money.

5 Stars Excellent Rack!

RodU from CA wrote (September 05, 2015):

I purchase this rack for my Jeep Cherokee SUV. the rack fits perfect! Assembly was very simple and i'm very impressed with construction and sturdiness of the rack. This product is worth the price and, in my opinion, is better than some other racks that I personally researched, which were more expensive.

4 Stars Happy camper!!

Andrea from CA wrote (August 19, 2015):

Shipped to me quick!! It had some scratches but as read by prior reviews, I sprayed it with bedliner spray to prevent rust and the black covered it. I had to buy larger screw for a certain area (not sure if the reason is me). I assembled it myself and had no problem despite poor directions. Got what I wanted and a good price! No complaints here!

Got the roof rack on top of my 4Runner . Awesome. Already camping a bunch of times. Works great!

5 Stars Senior Succeeds!

Susan from OR wrote (July 23, 2015):

This 69 year old adventurous woman was determined to assemble the rack and get this on my Subaru myself and I was 99% successful. I did have help to hoist it up on the car and then the attachment was easy. Now my goal to go camping every few weeks will be easier than ever. Glad to have found this Rage rack online.

5 Stars Great roof rack

Don Myers from TN wrote (June 28, 2015):

I purchased the Rage roof rack for my '01 4runner. It was easy to assemble as I constructed it in my driveway with nothing more than a few wrenches. It bolted right to the cross bars on my 4runner in just a few minutes with no problems. It is sturdy, looks great, and very functional and all this at a good low price.

4 Stars Easy to install

WL Adams from NC wrote (June 26, 2015):

I was looking for a rack with a fairly solid base with little openings. It was easy to put together. One of the tubes was bent and required some maintenance to get it to fit correctly. The paint chips easy. After I put it together, it seems to be fairly sturdy. I am confident it will work for what I need. I would say it was a good value overall!

5 Stars just what i wanted

5 Stars Rage Heavy Duty Roof Cargo Basket - Model RBC-4938HD

Thomas from NV wrote (March 03, 2015):

I searched the internet for a Low Profile Heavy Duty Roof Rack at a reasonable price. There are many manufacturers, sizes, styles and weight capacities to chose from. I chose the Rage Model RBC-4938HD because it provided a 150 pound capacity, has a full wire mesh rack base, is aero-dynamic and the over all size makes it usable on all my vehicles. I purchased it from Discount because their price was the lowest I could find. Delivery was made before the delivery date given at the time of purchase. Assembly took about 30 minutes and the fit and finish was great. I would definitely recommend this item and I will purchase from Discount again in the future.

4 Stars Good Rack

Henry K. from GA wrote (March 03, 2015):

Rack was delivered super quick. Had a couple small scratches on it, so that was disappointing. Rack was good quality for the price. Assembly was super easy.

5 Stars Great Cargo Basket

Scott from MO wrote (March 03, 2015):

shipped fast. Was easy to assemble and mount. I put on a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee for my extra tire. It looks sharp!!

5 Stars Nice Rack for the Money

doug from MO wrote (January 27, 2015):

Assembled and installed as advertised. Put it on a 2013 Honda Pilot. I was putting it together on a concrete floor and the powder coat finish held up just fine. I purchased it of Amazon but now seeing there was a larger one available I wish I had purchased it. I think this is a good deal.

4 Stars Just needs a few improvements.

Bary from OH wrote (May 09, 2014):

great roof rack for the price but could use some improvements. U bolts need to be longer. I have factory roof rails and they were not long enough for use with factory rails. powder coating needs to be better. I suggest getting it coated in rubberized product or rhino lining. I take it off in the winter and found some parts are rusting and paint is chipping. Also this would be better if it were on solid piece. Just too many moving parts for it to be super quiet. I am happy with it. I have used it for everything.
