So this is quite the long thread and I looked through it briefly. I am interested in getting one of these racks. My question is I have the stock rack on currently on my 95. Is it possible to leave old rack on? I’m afraid to see what’s underneath!!!

If you want to install all of the included rack bars then no. I put one on mine over the factory rack for transport home with some of the middle bars removed. actually one 3 bars per slot in the first 3 slots and last ones. Middle left open

Thx for the quick reply. Ideally I need to remove and repair or seal the old holes somehow. Does anyone have pics of fixing the old rack holes or how they sealed them up?

got these stout awning brackets from Patrick added onto the rack. Forgive the Christmas lights. Somebody tell me if I have them on upside down. I'm convinced you could pick up the truck by this rack!

5 and 3/8" from gutter to top of rack. If you gave yourself 6", I would think you would be fine.

This measurement is taken from a point on the gutter between the rear passenger door and the slider window. Even though the gutter curves along the length of the truck, the rack sits parallel (level) to the top of the truck. (Apologies for the pic quality. Camera and my hands don't work well in the dark at 25 degrees :))

These are from my 80 going in my 7" garage door. My truck has a Slee 4" lift and 35's and it clears by a bunch. HTH
