Has Anyone Used This Ladder Rack?

I am looking to add a ladder rack to my cap to carry a ladder around for estimates and whatnot. Not needing it for materials or anything. Has anyone used these bolt on ones. And if so will they work with a fiberglass top or only http://www.myladderracks.com/product...categoryID=445the metal shells that have the interior framework.

I am temted to just get the under mount ladder rack that will definately support the extra weight as it supports off the bed rails.

I have the Thule one, just not on a fiberglass cap. They claim it will still hold 500 lbs, but who knows. Not much help, I know.

An almost free ladder rack - double up some 3/4" ply, scribe to the shape of the cap, install L brackeks or eye bolts at the ends, glue and screw to your cap. Give it a paint job and you've got a pro looking rack.
