I found this rack and was wondering if anybody knows how much weight the factory bars can handle. I want to mount my 235 spare and some lights on it. do you think the factory bars will hold up?

Fixed the way the link displays so it wasn't so long. Wink

Personally, I would not use a rack that uses the factory bars. There are much better racks out there that can handle more weight.

Having said that, for what you want to do, it should work...but don't expect to put anything else on it.
