Great rack. Quality product. Reason for the mid level review is their install instructions. Going by their list and video is a decent starting point, but actual kit is different than what is sent to you. Their kit for installing the nut inserts is simply a zinc bolt with a 5/16” rod coupling for a sleeve. Please check what you get as a 5/8” wrench is too big. The kit I received required a 7/16” open ended wrench and I purchased different nut inserts from the hardware store. Also received the different rear end cap piece than what is needed. Waiting to hear back from victory. Be sure to check all parts before installing. Although they don’t really have a decent label or model number displayed nor a thorough detailed parts list. Once I was able to figure out the differences install went ok. Just a bit frustrating that what was given me was different than what they indicated. Always a bit disconcerting especially for a product you're drilling through your trucks roof for.

First time ever installing a rack like this. Was a little put off a first about drilling into my truck and first time drilling into metal. Slow and steady is key I quickly learned and use some wd40 as lube. The rack has been awesome for putting my kayak on the roof and is much quieter than existing Yakima racks I've had.
The best advice I can give is don't use the tool they provide to install the rivnuts. You've already spent $800 on a rack, spend an extra $40-$50 at amazon and get a rivnet tool (I wish Victory gave you the option to add it onto the order). Anyways it's a must unless you like coming up with new swear words as the bolt starts to strip and have to scramble around town trying to find another one.
Other then that, install is pretty easy if your comfortable with a drill and tape.

The rack itself is fantastic, went together in a very short amount of time, even drilling into the truck went fairly quickly.
I found issues in the tool used to set the rivnuts. One, if you aren't steady, they can be misaligned. No fault of Victory on that, just be careful. On the fifth hole, the bolt's threads for the tool completely just shredded themselves at the bottom, which meant I couldn't set any more rivnuts. Monday morning, I called Victory, and they were very helpful in finding the exact bolt name, picked some extras up, and I was done.
Incredibly great rack, feels/looks solid(especially due to using steel feet!), and cheaper than the competition. Very happy with it!
Note From Victory 4x4: Sorry for the troubles, but glad we got you squared away. Thanks for the order!

This thing makes the truck! Got the light bar cutout and I can’t wait to add the light! Well made and instructions were clear and precise
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the order and review!

Great rack, simple use with any accessory. Install was a bit difficult as the ribnut tool is cheap and stripped the head off the hex bolt. A threaded rivet gun made this job so much easier. Quiet rack and excellent customer service, my Tundra has Victory 4x4 products all over it!
Note From Victory 4x4: Sorry about that tool. Glad you got it handled! We wish we could include a rivnut drill tool in every kit :)

Purchased the roof rack for my 2018 Tundra Limited and it fix great. I went together as advertised, watching the video was a great benefit. I was a little apprehensive about drilling into my roof, but after drilling one hole, the others weren't a problem. Hint use the sized drill bit that comes with the kit, the threaded inserts fit that hole size perfect. It will take 2 people to lift the rack up to the roof to mark the holes and then down and then for finial installation. Best to have a step ladder to get the leverage for drilling. Total assembly and installation is about 2 hours with a few beers. Awesome rack!
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the order, glad you like the rack!
