I recently purchased the CR1 Chase Rack and upon opening the box is was thoroughly impressed. The shipping material from the factory was impressive and protected the contents extremely well, which was one of my concerns. The box has weight due to the heavy material used to manufacture the rack. This is no cheap lightweight rack by any means. Most of the other racks on the market appear to be thin and flimsy. The CR1 is not. The finish was very well done. The welds were clean and no gaps were detected.
Now the ONLY thing I found wrong with this rack is troubling. The driver side support is more than 1/4 inch SHORTER than the passenger side! This translates to the rack looking bent downward to the left from the rear of the vehicle. 1/4 inch does not sound like much but because the rack is actually an inch shorter than my roof line, the pitch is greatly noticeable. I measured the height difference of the rack supports from the same location and it IS shorter on one side. This is a manufacturing oversight that considering the rest of the build quality is a disaster.
As far as Armordillo themselves, I had attempted to contact the company via email and telephone PRIOR to purchase and neither were successful. No return communication was ever received.
I purchased this part thru AutoAnything to fit an ‘06 Nissan Titan and would recommend them to anyone considering a purchase of any type. The rack fit and cab pitch was a perfect match other than the aforementioned overall shortness of the rack and the manufacturer measurement miscalculation. Mounting lights onto the existing light mounts incorporated into the rack will require elevating them above the roof.
One of the assembling holes used to bolt the rack together was butchered at the factory looking like a torch was used to open it which is no biggie but still worth mentioning.

Overall it is a very solid product with the exception of the geometry of the left side being significantly shorter. I will contact AutoAnything to see what they suggest, as Armordillo seems to have very little or NO customer support whatsoever in place. Even the retailer had mentioned the difficulties they have encountered attempting to communicate with Armordillo which to me is intolerable.
One final note: for older vehicles like mine, this rack is aesthetically perfect. Anytime you use “universal fit” products covering a multitude of vehicle applications, you’ll eventually have fitment issues that should be expected. As far as design, quality of material and packaging, you could not ask for a better product. However as a company and for quality control over something so profound as product geometry, Armordillo is at least in my case severely lacking.

This makes providing a star rating very difficult. Other than the rack being made “un-level” I give the CR1 rack a solid 5 stars. But because of the seriousness of the bent appearance when mounted and the complete failure of this company to offer ANY customer support, that as left of the star rating earns a single star. So 3 stars it shall be.

Tough Solid Look

I thought that my lifted F150 looked tough, but adding the Armordillo Chase Rack made it even tougher looking. Easy to install, just make sure to center the drill holes for the washers to fit at the bottom. Solid and good fit on my 2014 Ecoboost F150.
