Taking out the headliner makes no sense for the rack itself. Is there a power cable going to the rack?

If I remember correctly they require drilling at the bottom to mount and as you can see are mounted to the roof rack on top.

The new Professional version does not require any drilling to mount the ladder. They are set up from Graz with reinforcement there and threaded bolt holes.

To remove the rack is just 10 bolts that clamp it to the rain gutter.
Remove bolts, get some friends and lift it off.
I own this rack and can confirm it has been on and off my truck with no issues.
I do not own the LeTech ladder as I do not own a new G350d

Do you know if they make any jerry can mounting brackets or other mounting brackets (for lights and shovels, etc like Frontrunner)?

I have a hard time receiving a response LeTech in regards to any of these application questions.

LeTech will not reply directly :)
They do not make any mounting items but they do sell (or you can get) attachment points and make your own or use others designs.
Have a picture somewhere and will try to find and post

Sorry to thread hijack but while we are identifying roof racks does anyone know who makes this one? Any other options for SWB? Thanks


Anyone have any info on this rack for the swb?
