    OK, so i just wanted to give everyone the heads up about these
    2 websites. They listed the wrong surco elite roof rack for my truck,
    sent the s10 size one, delayed shipping a month, and now we
    are arguing to get a return authorization. They're customer
    service has been terrible, and they won't even stick to teh claims
    listed in their return policy.

    That aside, I now need to find another source for a factory like rack.
    My blazer didnt' come with the factory one. After seeing the surco one though,
    i am not satisfied with the quality at all. They tell you to just screw it to the roof
    with sheet metal screws.

    Anyways, anyone know of any good sources? I don't have any problem
    getting a used one, but all the local salvage places stock mostly
    rollovers or complete burns, so the racks are rarely intact.
    My only other idea was to find a custom shop that might "shave"
    a factory one off a street truck, but i haven't had any luck so far.

    Sorry for the long post, any other suggestions?
    Anyone know any other custom shops i could check with in teh San Francisco
    Bay ARea?

    Thanks!

    Confer is the only other Company I can think of..
    www.conferr.com

    Also.. I think there is Yakima !!! not sure on the spelling. but I'm sure both are pricey..
    I would think Conferr is the best in the market..
    Hope this helps. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yea, connefer only makes the basket type racks, although u are
    right you can attach them without the factory rack. I think
    my best best is a salvage yard....
