Looks like I have a buyer for my AT Chaser, so I’ll hopefully be joining the GFC club. I have a 2021 Colorado ZR2. My main concern is wind noise.
I’ve read some threads with homemade fairings and such. I had a Prinsu on my old ZR2 and had thought about installing one on the new truck as well. I’m pretty sure that the Prinsu will not fit under the GFC at the back of the cap…so…looking to possibly cut/modify a Prinsu rack at the rear end to fit under.
Does anyone run this set up on a ZR2?
If so…can you post or email some pics? If it doesn’t fit, would be nice to see where you chopped yours.
I got zero wind noise with the Prinsu (fairing in the front) and I’m guessing that the Prinsu fairing should assist in GFC wind noise.
Also, quick PSA for those with roof racks…have some clear or color matched vinyl put on your roof before you install the rack. When I pulled my old rack after a few years, there was definitely some surface rust spots and discoloration from the fairing rubbing the roof paint and water dripping on the rails in the same spot over time. Roof vinyl will run you about $200 to have a shop do it. Just thought I’d add that.
@adv_riggs did you have any luck sourcing a “half length” roof rack? I’m looking for one too and agree frame flexing and rough trails would probably cause GFC and full rack to make contact. Pictures I’ve seen of full racks show very little clearance. I shot a note to Colorado & Canyon Enthusiasts to see if they know of any options. I like the UpTop Bravo rack, especially as it can be ordered with a light bar cut out - wondering if it could be adapted into a half cab length version. But also don’t love the idea of buying a full length rack only to toss half of it.
