Oh hey... it was mine that dropped off a couple of weeks earlier at the start of our road trip. Mine came off at the gas station which was a good thing rather than while moving.
Took to a local shop and got it repaired and did some rattle can to make it look prettier and then hit the road. 4600 miles later, it's still attached but with an additional ratchet strap for good measure.
Same welder apparently worked on both of these as they have zero weld penetration but look really pretty. The tubes were also cracked on mine and got them fixed but I really don't trust the tubes anymore.
The new version...
History on the van is that it was built by SMB West in the fall of 2008 and as of the rack break, only had 61k miles. Not a lot of rough off road either. I suspect this may not be how all of them were built back in the day and maybe, just maybe it was the same welder. Dunno.
Gonna contact Aluminess again and submit my repair bill. Also wish they would make some extra arms so that people could buy them but they only make enough arms for the new bumpers as complete units. I'd just bet they could sell a hundred or so.
