I have a rack on order with them. This is not to say there aren't other good options. I am sure there are. But frankly, 2500 for a bespoke rack of this level of quality with urethane coating, etc. with no drilling holes on your truck is very in line with market. No relationship other than an informed, researched, satisfied customer.

If it turns out that no one else will make a comparable rack then I'll cough up the money to them. When I met them at Expo last year I walked away impressed with their work. And much to my wife's dismay, I certainly don't have a problem spending money on nice things. But as it stands right now, 2500 is not in line with market from what I am finding. Hell, that's 2.5% the cost of a Limited Prospector.

I meant no offense directly, everything for these trucks is expensive. We are all lucky to be able to afford the hobby. All I'm saying is whether its bed racks or bed cover systems, bumpers, witches, etc. I have found that with these trucks you get what you pay for. And I would rather spend a little bit extra to get something 100% American made and durable. The only thing I found close to nuthouse was the Leitner systems. Also 100% American made and pretty cool. But to my eyes not as sturdy as the nuthouse bespoke racks, and requires drilling holes on our trucks. Not much cheaper either. I am using their gear pods. My only "complaint" with nuthouse is be prepared to wait. Here are some pictures of mine in process. I'm anxious to get the rack on my truck.
