They are cheap alright, and sure know how to charge for accessories. I always used to leave them in place on all the accessories I was installing, but decided as long as the instructions say to discard them, may as well.

I left mine on as I never got directions with the dozen I purchased... Also when my rear cab is off the rubber blocks help keep the clamp closed.

Cheap Mmmm not here in Canada, $18-20.00 per clamp not including tax. On line was like $8.50 to my door all in. Ridiculous really....

A lot of people do...it makes me a little nervous . I swear I can feel the difference. For piece of mind, I put my roof in the back of my truck for long interstate trips. My truck has a tonneau cover. It's probably ok tho.

Ride like your Life depends on it... because it does.

If doing a long trip at interstate speeds you might consider removing it. Having a full windshield might put more stress on it depending on you towing set up.

Personally,I wouldn't mount anything to the roof with out some reinforcement as it seems a little too flimsy for that. The roof works well with a Great Day gun rack.



The roof attaches using 5 of the tool-less clamps.


The lever of the clamp is on a threaded bolt so you can adjust how much it tightens.


There is a rubber spacer between the lever and the clamp.
9I thought the same thing initially about mounting anything to the roof. But after several cussing sessions and painful entries, I moved my 40" LED light bar from the front roll bar to the roof on the inside side. Barely moves
