This complete multi-purpose cargo platform solution is for the 2009 to 2018 RAM 1500, 2500 and 3500 Crew and Mega Cab. This installation requires drilling into the ditch channel as detailed in the instruction manual, see link below.
The Rhino-Rack BackBone mounting system is constructed of hardened steel with a durable finish. The vertical supports distributes weight from the Pioneer Platform across its length and into the roof top ditch channel which are the strongest point of the roof.
The Rhino-Rack BackBone connects directly to the underside of the Pioneer Platform using heavy duty fasteners. The BackBone allows the weight of your gear to be transported on the roof by distributing the weight of your luggage evenly through the strongest area of the roof.
The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform is constructed of lightweight aluminum and composite materials, making this platform non-corrosive and will not rust or fade. Thoughtfully designed, the Pioneer Platforms have a multitude of gear specific carriers that easily attach to the four c-channeled floor planks.
The weight capacity for this system is 220 pounds evenly distributed and the static load (parked) of 730 pounds, evenly distributed. The Pioneer Platform measured 60L x 56W x 1.5H inches. View complete specification in the instruction manual.
