The rock hard works great. All you have to do is lift a lever to open it and then it slams shut just like a car door. I have my CB antenna mounted to the rock hard (the mount is included) and plan on getting the rack to carry a bit more stuff when camping.
Most people say you can carry a 33x10.50 on the stock but I didn't want to risk damage to the tailgate hinges so I went without a spare for a month or so until I could get the rock hard.
