pioneer in use on trail

Built for off-road use and tested in harsh Australian conditions, the Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform is a comprehensive solution for your cargo carrying needs. This platform's large, flat surface lets you carry more gear than a typical roof rack, freeing up space inside your vehicle. The Pioneer uses integrated channels in the planks and side rails to accommodate a wide variety of Rhino-Rack accessories, including rail systems, awnings, light brackets, and more. The platform mounts directly to your vehicle's fixed mounting points using Backbone system.


The Perfect Roof Rack for Any Outdoor Lifestyle

pioneer with accessories

Whether you are overlanding, camping, or tailgating, the Pioneer platform's ample surface space lets you carry a large amount of cargo and gear. This helps free up space inside of your vehicle so you and your passengers can travel comfortably. The integrated channels located in the planks and side rails let you install channel-mount accessories, like an awning or kayak carrier, similar to a traditional roof rack. But, there are also several accessories that install exclusively to the Pioneer platform, such as the aluminum folding ladder and gas can holders. And because of the platform's design you can utilize many of these accessories at the same time.


accessory bars

Accessory bars (RR43138B - sold separately) can be added to accommodate clamp-mounted accessories that fit in the space between the platform's planks, such as bike carriers and cargo boxes. And because the bars have C-channels, you can use them to mount additional channel-mounted gear in the open space between the planks. By installing the accessory bars in the platform's integrated channels, you gain all the advantages of a traditional crossbar system, while maintaining the generous surface space of the platform.


front and side rails

Additionally, a rail system can be installed to enhance your application. The rails bolster the safety of your load and create additional tie-down points for your gear. They are easy to install and simply bolt into the channels on the platform's side rails. This platform is compatible with front and side rails (RR43160B - sold separately).


Utilitarian Design with Rugged, Off-Road Look

pioneer aerodynamic design

The Pioneer platform was designed with utility in mind and features a rugged, off-road look. The low-profile tray was also designed to be aerodynamic to help reduce wind noise and drag.


wind fairing

An optional wind fairing (RR43249 - sold separately) is available to cut down on wind noise even further.


Strong, Durable Construction

pioneer close up

Strong, yet lightweight, the platform's frame is constructed of aluminum and includes reinforced nylon connectors. Since these materials are powder coated and non-corrosive, the platform won't rust or fade when exposed to the weather. Rhino-Rack has rigorously tested the Pioneer in the harsh Australian outback, ensuring it's built to withstand anything your adventures throw at it.


Custom Fit Installation

This Pioneer platform rack is custom fit for your vehicle and includes all the parts necessary to install it in the fixed mounting points on your vehicle's roof. The platform comes unassembled, so you will have to put it together before proceeding to the installation. After this is complete, simply remove the vehicle's ditch infill and bolt the Backbone to the factory mounting points. The bars attached to the bottom of the platform connect to the Backbone and secure the Pioneer in place.

It's a nice rack. Installation could be easier. There is no reason to limit tool access to wrenches mainly. An inch here an access hole there and a ratchet or power tool could be used. That's why I didn't give it a 5

Looks great....fairly easy to assemble. Took many hours to install on rook because of the lugs not spinning into position while tightening.

The Pioneer platform is well built. The backbone mounting system is solid! I have been driving my truck for a few weeks now and even with the radio on you hear plenty of wind noise. Will be trying the 52 inch fairing later on to hopefully reduce some of that wind noise. The instructions are not very user friendly but with some patience it can be assembled. The butyl patches provide with my unit were melted and unusable so I got a different rubber tape and used clear silicon on the bolts holding the backbone rails. Overall I am very happy with this platform. I will be mounting some solar panels in the future.

  • Is Molding Removed Installing Backbone Mounting System for Pioneer Platform Rack on 2017 Ford F-250
    When installing the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone Mounting System on your 2017 Ford F-250 - which is part # JB0733 for a Crew Cab or part # JB0736 for a Super Cab - the molding is left exposed where the backbone mounting system installs.

    In order to mount the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket, part # RCMB02, you will need a roof rack system.
