Actually, we went with steel. We’re whitewater rafters and our experience is that aluminum welds work harden and crack over time. The rack was under 150# in mild steel so we decided the increased weight was worth it. The Smittybilt gutter brackets are rated for 150# each so the six on the back 2/3 of the Rack should more than cover the gear load.
