Speaker 1: Today on 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, we're gonna be doing a test fit on the Seasucker Monkey Bar Roof Rack System, part number 298-SX6000.Now we have the front bar installed, let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.Now what sets this roof rack apart from a lot of other roof racks out there on the market is that rather than having the traditional clamp style where it comes under your door frame right here and clamps on, it suction cups to the top of your roof to provide still a snug fit. This is convenient for installation and removal, makes the process a lot quicker, and assembly of the roof rack is a lot quicker than those traditional clamp style roof racks.We do have round bars on this roof rack system, so you are gonna have some wind noise and drag. But if you wanna get rid of that you can purchase the fairing separately at etrailer.com to place it in front to kind of divert that wind and cut down on that drag and noise.And it uses a plunger system to suction cup to the roof of our truck. Each cup is gonna have 210 pounds of pull pressure, so it's gonna be very sturdy on our truck and not move.How we got the front bar in place, we measured from the top of our windshield to the top edge, or the front edge I should say, of our front suction cup. That way we had it even and square on both sides.What's also cool about this roof rack system is that you don't have a set spot of where it needs to be like those old traditional clamp style roof racks. You can place it wherever's convenient for you, as long as you place the suction cups in a spot where the roof doesn't have any of these ridges right here that pop up. more
