Nutzo Tech 1 series Expedition truck bed rack. This is a fully welded, all aluminum, expedition roof top tent (RTT) rack. These aluminum bed racks can support the largest of RTT. The Nutzo Tech 1 rack has the most modular configuration that we offer. These racks have a universal bolt pattern that accepts, in any configuration, our NutShell Modulare Storage Boxes and Universal Mounting Plates. The NutShell Modulare Storage Boxes are available in a 18″, 42″, and 50″ lengths. The Universal Mounting Plates are predrilled for attaching Rotopax cans, High Lift Jacks, Maxtrax Pins, and more to come.
We can customize your truck rack to any configuration to accommodate your needs. We custom build these racks to fit everything from light duty to heavy duty trucks. These racks are made from 2” square aluminum tube with 1/8” wall thickness. The cross bars are made from 1 -5/8” square tube.
Depending on truck bed lengths, sometimes the rack will have 1 upright divider pole. This will leave a 20″ window upfront by the cab that will accept a 18″ Nutshell Box or a Universal mounting plate. This will leave the back of the rack open to accept multiple 18″ Nutshell boxs, a single long Nutshell box, or Universal mounting plates.
These racks go thru a multi-step cleaning process, receive an epoxy based primer, and get coated with regular Linex bed liner then a top coat of Linex Ultra. The Linex Ultra provides a finer texture and is U.V. stable. After the finishing process is complete, we will proceed with any lighting requirements including CHMSL (Third brake lights), flood lights, cargo lights, and marker lights.
