The truck industry has reduced the gauge of the steel and, therefore, the strength of the box walls on all pickup trucks. Some suppliers who install our 700 series stone racks on their trucks are experiencing a spreading of the rear of the box opening. This will eventually result in the tailgate coming open or not latching at all. We have no control over the cost cutting measures being used by the truck industry, but we have developed an assembly that can help reduce this problem.
This product has been designed to maximize usable floor space. With proper installation, it will not protrude any farther than the wheel wells.
Price: $185 per pair plus shipping if not purchased with 700 series stone rack.
The 700 Series Pickup instructions are available in downloadable PDF format.
Note: Stabilizers shown below are painted black but are only available in stainless steel.
