Based on several Tacoma forums I felt that the bed stiffeners would not only be a preventative measure, but a useful modification. The quality of the stiffeners is top notch. I did chip the powder coat, but I think that may have been partially installation tools and partially that the part had some sharper edges and powder doesn't like sharp edges. I'm not concerned though as the top notch fabrication at Rago uses stainless steel. I watched the Rago YouTube video for installation and felt that it was sufficient, however a bit more detail would be nice, especially in the area of the spacers on the factory tie down points, my do not swivel very easily anymore, as the video states to not reuse the spacers.
Look and work awesome. Easy installation.
Excellent product quality, perfect fit, easy installation
I just received my order from Rago. These are seriously beefy ! Well constructed made in Texas (Like my Taco!).Stainless and powder coated = much stronger and no rusting out! Added bonus: Family/Veteran owned business. You can tell they put a lot of thought and love into their products. I would highly recommend anything from Rago. Extremely satisfied customer.
Very good quality. Still waiting on my roof top tent to put on my bed rack to test it out but I am confident it will do its job. I love the minimal profile. And very fast shipping very impressed.
