The rack was delivered quickly and was packed nicely. Due to my own oversight (didn't look for the instructions inside the wind deflector package), I put the rack together without instructions. Even without the instructions, it went together easy and mounted with out problems. It looks great and carries a load of fishing gear without any problem. Overall real happy with my purchase.

The value of the Surco Safari rack is hard to beat. I needed a basket that was wider than the typical 39 - 40 inches of most kits to clear Ham/CB antenna mounts. The kit has reasonably good instructions and extra hardware making the build quick and easy. Installation was more challenging - the channel system had screws that required shims to reach the square nuts - and finding a happy center took more effort than it should. The biggest negative was the spare tire carrier threaded rod; the paint should be removed before attempting to add a tire and wingnut. Otherwise the assembly will lock up due to caked finish paint. For a serious-looking reasonably durable rack that is half of the cost of many other systems, this one should not be overlooked.
