Ive taken my truck off roading no crazy rock crawling but some good trails. You should upgrade with PRG UCA and the coilovers if you get the Calmini set up. If I could re do it over I would have just got everything from PRG and no Calmini. I would either go with the 4 WD Advanced Coilover Package or do a titan swap and get stuff from Greg at PRG. Hope that helps...

I think it looks nice. As long as it works for what you need I think it is a winner. I also loke the fact that it works with the utilitrac and doesn't require drilling into the bed or anything.

On a side note thou, what is its weight limits? I would be afraid of over loading it and having the bed bow. It may not be the weight but the weight and the aerodynamics acting on it that could cause it to bow.

It can carry 300lbs spread out over the rack, so for what I want its perfect. Im not doing construction or anything so it will be just for sport/fun.

What about the wind load thou pushing down on it? A kayak is like a sail, it will catch the wind.

I am only suggesting that if you do start having issues, you may want to fabricate some kind of cross bars that go across on the utilitrac to tie each side in together.

Thats a nice setup man! i've been looking to do something similar. i kayak quite a bit and it would be nice to load the yak and still have storage underneath.
