Universal Samson Bed Rack

     Now that I'm once again having to haul around 2 bikes I figured it was time to find a better way of securing them.  Annnnd since RMATV saw fit to send me a $50 gift card, that gave me 2 options since that's how many varieties of bed racks they carry in stock.  I ended up going with the Samson Bed Rack by Universal simply because it had good reviews and it looked decent.  1st off, let me say I'm pretty impressed with how well constructed it is.  Smart design, and pretty darn lightweight too.  I've been leery about bed racks in the past b/c I always figured it would be a massive pain to bolt it up.  Not so!  Sure you have to work blindly, but there's enough room to hold a wrench between the bed and the cab and get the job done.  The whole installation took me about 20 minutes, and I even added a bit of RTV smeared on the exposed metal of the drilled holes for rust prevention.  Anyway it looks good and I'll edit this post once I've had a chance to use it.
