Strengths:    Fits various truck bed widths. Lots of options for positioning wheel and fork mounts on it.

Weaknesses:    Not stable, paint gets scraped off when adjusting, bar would be difficult to lock to the bed as claimed, spring gets jammed in adjustment screw

Bottom Line:   
Calling this product "stableloader" is a joke. Try as I might, I couldn't get it mounted firmly in my Tacoma P/U with bedliner. If you have flat surfaces on your liner it may work. Delta suggested shimming it with 2x4's. Also, the only way to lock this to the bed is to slide the adjustment wheel off the nut and put a padlock on it so you can't unscrew it. Since you can just yank the thing out of the bed at will, what's the point? When adjusting the length, the spring gets caught in the screw threads, making it impossible to turn. This product is junk, save your money and buy something else.

Strengths:    Overall good product. Durable

Weaknesses:    After 2 straight years in back of my pick up, it is rusted. Otherwise worked good.

Bottom Line:   
Great product for 2 years. I neglected to take it out of my truck bed 2 years straight so it rusted prety bad. I'm buying a new one and painting it with a rust proofing. Can't believe that this and other similiar products are as much as 150 (for the Thule version). Crazy, they sure know how to get you. i mean it's a fricken metal bar and a few bike mounts. Should be about 50.
