Yeah, it is fork lift loadable. I'll probably wrap the cross bars in aluminum tube so the powder coating doesn't get destroyed to bare metal.

I've loaded 2000lbs on my Rack-it truck racks without an issue. The weak part is the truck bed sides.

I believe it can do it. I like the full rail portion the rack rests on.

I found some Weatherguard 18"H X 16" D X 90" long tool boxes that will fit on the rails as well.

Make sure the lids open good enough. I tried the fork lift racks with my tool boxes that I already had and they didn't work with them. However, they were the old style fork racks.

These will fit nicely between the upright supports, on top of the bed rail. They open to driver and passenger side. The rail opening is 92"X20 1/2".

Re: Chevy 2500 Crew Cab Long Box Gas


Well, I just reached 2 months since I ordered the truck. It was finished around February 8th. Apparently shipping it from a city less than 3 hours away from me isn't so speedy. They must be shipping it by rail.

I'll be peeved if it doesn't arrive this week.

It's going straight to the rust prevention sprayers before it touches the roads. The dealer will be taking off the Alaska package detail as well as removing the wheel well covers prior to spray.

I probably drove by it 20 times, maybe they stuck it out by the sign on the interstate for a week or so.

Railroads are like airlines and fedex/ups which operate a hub and spoke systems so the train probably went to another state to a classification yard to be sent back near you

Yeah, I imagine it's gone for a good roll around the great lakes region before making it's way back north to the GR area.

I may see if I can activate the OnStar.
