    I’m having issues getting mine on. Someone please tell me the trick to this. They go on easy while the rack is off the truck

    You have to put the anchor nuts up and then bolt down the middle bolt into the anchor nut. Then you set the cross rail on top of the anchor nuts on either side and then it slides back into the lock position on the anchor nut. It then is in the right spots for the forward and rear bolt slots.

    I got that part. I just can’t seem to get the end caps to go in place.

    I loosened both ends and pulled outward while running screws back in. That’s all it took
