1.0 Connecting hardware is a fail

Smitty Built does a nice job on thier stuff generally speaking. But their defender roof rack connectors absolutely leave something to be desired. It is extremely diffucult to get the right connector kit on the first try. Be very careful what you order and you might get the right item the first time.


Question & Answers

4 Answered questions

Q: Can I change the hardware or Can I easily remove the bolt that's vertical? Just in case I want to replace it to stainless. Answer this question

A: Hello Chris R, The vertical bolt shown would be very difficult to remove as it seems to be welded possibly to another piece. All the other screws seem to be easy to replace. Here is a link to a video that shows the part closely at a little after 1 min 40 secs. Also notice it looks to be better coated in video. Thanks for checking us out. Here's the link
