Has anyone had a Killa Concepts roof rack & if so, are they any good? The price ($549) sounds pretty good, the load rating is good (150kg), rack weight is 25kg & size is good (2200 x 1250) & 12 mth warranty. Am I missing something here?

Don't no anything about this unit . i have had two aluminum roof racks over last 8 years both fell a part on the rough roads I go on ie. Canning ,Anne Beadell Hwy, and others.They were loaded to to there maximum but not over weight.They were better known brands. I have since changed to steel had no problems since.
IF you are going to stick to black top should be ok.
Just my 2 cents worth about aluminum racks

The Jaram brand Ali racks are tough.

Overloaded and tough tracks all over Australia without a hint of a problem.

If an Ali rack is built properly it will last. Mine now 13 years old.

I have had one for about two years and it is ok but I don't ever load it up. Only a swag or fishing rods etc and toss a bit of firewood on when in camp

They are pretty lightweight and would not buy one if you plan to carry a bit of weight off-road
It does what I need so are happy with it

Look around for a second hand Steel one I got one for a Patrol and then a Cruiser for around the $550 mark Both like brand new Only minor prob is the fact that they weigh about 40 Kg out of the 100kg limit

Got a full length steel rack for a Prado for $299 new from 4wdsupercentre .
Solid and strong.
Almost got a aluminium one for $600 - $1200 from other brands.
Fifth large type product I bought in 2 years from them so I am happy with their quality.

Thanks for the info.
I actually picked up one at a clearing sale yesterday for $260 incl shovel & jack holders. This will suit me just fine.
