Just ran across raiderrack on Instagram. Has anyone used these? Looks like a more complete tailgate rack system with vertical racks.

Something like this I can see strapping instruments down...rail system from factory is just loops that slide on track

The slider loops fit all three TRMS rails. One caution...if you install the MOPAR tailgate table, the sliders for the tailgate rail cannot be moved on and off without first removing the table. The table attachment brackets block the ends of the rail.

Roger that. Damn, I'm glad I found this before ordering the factory rack. This looks way more versatile with tons of mounting options. I'm going to guinea pig a top rack and 3 minis. They say they're in stock. Wish me luck.

For whatever it's worth here are few pics of factory. And finding the hardware and putting it all together is the fun part

Thanks. Those mopar tiedowns aren't available, AFAIK? There's some hardware on RR's website that look pretty useful. I'm thinking a couple cleats and a few d-rings would be good starters. I might grab that bag too. I've got tons of bungee cord, so this should get interesting.

These came in today Priority Mail! The top rail requires removal of that plastic plate & it bolts into the door, and the mini rails snap into the louvers. Installing the rails took about 5 minutes, seriously. I ordered extra hardware from Raider Rack and some accessories from Amazon (quick fists, folding cup holders (They were ~$3 each.)) The cup holders have 6 pre-drilled holes (so they can be mounted on the horizontal or vertical rails) and the quick fists have centered holes, so I only hold to ream out the cup holder holes slightly. Not too bad, only only took two beers to get it set up. I'll probably change it around again. :)

Thanks! This is where I bought the rack system.
These were $3.41 add-ons two days ago. Now they're $9.15. Jerks. The black ones are $5.94, and Kahki & Brown are cheaper too.

You're very welcome. I decided to go with a 5-mini configuration...the extra 2 should be here tomorrow. Have you figured out your configuration yet?

Not sure yet. I got the big one and three smalls. Totally steeling the cup holder idea.
