This is one of two boxes i can mount up top. Also have an aluminum plate that takes the place of one box, for lashing things to.

Its probably about as thick as the tubing bestop uses for its soft tops and will bend the second you need to do an emergency stop when forward momentum takes over.

So do you have experience or pics with it or just randomly flaming items made in China?

I don't need to flame items made in china, they do that for themselves when they fail - sometimes literally.

If you like pissing money away on sub standard made products with little to no overall quality or value - its your money. Just look at the design of the rack - what's to stop the load from shifting forward upon braking? You think that soft Chinese metal bracket at the bottom is going to withstand 50+ lbs from suddenly shifting forward? First time you need to stop hard - whatever was on your roof rack will be on your hood.
