Proline Safari Racks

Anyone have one of these. Most other racks are like $260+.
This is mad cheap compared to that and doesnt look bad.

Here is the one im talking about only 129$

I think that rack gets rebadged by other companies. These Black Widow roof baskets look about the same and have the same dimensions and extension piece.

I poked around a bit at NAXJA and found someone's experience with the Proline. Sounds like it's a little flimsy with the extension, but you can reinforce it. Sounds like it's a decent deal.

well yea i think one of those long ones will look kinda stupid because it will exten so far past the front stock crossmembers on the roof.

Good for a spare tire, a tent and a chair
