Good afternoon. I am new to the forum so forgive my ignorance as a noob. I have been doing a lil searching in the forums for some information on a roof rack, but thought it would be easier to just solicit suggestions.
I have a 2001 crew cab that I bought new. I have about 170 K miles on it and plan on using it till she can't go anymore. I got a new snowboard last spring and am looking to add a rack to haul it. What would some of you with experience recommend what I should I do for a good solution. I know there are obvioulsy tons of chices. Permanent, removable, tons of manufacturers and the like. I also have a ARE lid on the bed and have entertained mounting a rack on that instead of the roof. Anyone have any experience with something like that. I will probably be using it for my snowboard and maybe a couple sets of skis for my running mates but I am guessing once I put something up there, I will find other uses. My truck is pretty stock except for the lid and a new radio. I do not necessarily want to break the bank either for a rack.
Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to respond.
