Waddiya think? Rackless EXT

When I had my truck in the shop for repairs after a fender bender, got the shop to also permanently remove the roof rack. EXT's are a bit different than the shorties on the rack retention as there are two ugly humps where the front bolts go. I had removed the rack and just plugged the threaded inserts before. I liked the look but those humps were just too ugly and weird so I put the rack back. What the shop did was just pound them in and fill them in. No cutting or welding.

The rear is also different than the shorties, a bit higher to accommodate the rear passengers but I still like the look a lot. Much cleaner look. I'd better like it because I can't put it back!

So if anybody else is thinking of getting rid of their rack, this will give you a good idea of what it will look like.

Please excuse me for the dirt as it was raining today.

PS: I'll try and add a side view later.

Did the same thing to mine, did you use set screws to fill the hole where the original bolts went? or did you just put the original ones back in?

No set screws. Completely pounded down and filled in. Totally clean.

Oh yeah, it will make it easier to brush the snow off. Absolutely hated the rack for that :mad:

I don't like the look of the shorties without a roof rack, but I like the way your EXT looks without.
