Sprinter Safari Rack Installation Guide (Video)

Our Sprinter Van Safari Rack is a popular option for people that want something that looks slightly more aggressive than our Low Pro Series. In this post we'll go over the installation process. 

!! Pro Tip !!

If you are installing a side ladder, install it prior to installing the Safari Rack. It also helps to slide in all the pucks for the Safari Rack before bolting down the ladder as well.
