Thanks, Ben
BK08= slight texture.

the dual ladders work well.

Thanks for the pics and yes, dual ladder look great! Add some spot/backup lights, equals even cooler...

I would also add the AEV corner guards. The GOBi plates twist since they are put on with 3M tape. Once you start wheeling that truck X days in the hot sun, they twist. The AEV corner guards also give you a much more solid base.

Yes, I agree. I think I like that idea too.

I know this is an old thread, but we did develop with GOBI a weld on bracket that works great with the AEV corner guards. Here are some photos. Being now that the rack only flexes with the body, it has worked out well for us especially with heavier loads up top.

Ben,

Do you fabricate these brackets for sale? If so, do you provide AEV Corner Guards with the Gobi brackets welded to the Corner Guards?

Thanks,
Robert

Robert, no we got Gobi to build these and they now offer them as a option with AEV Corner Guards. Give Gobi a call and asked for Paul.

Thanks, Ben
