LIFETIME CRASH REPLACEMENT PARTS PROGRAM

Khyber Racks have superior corrosion resistance due to material selection and surface treatments. This is effective at extending the life of your rack beyond what powder coated steel can offer. Despite this, harsh environments such as salted roads and coastal areas affected by sea spray can still cause surface corrosion and is not covered by this Limited Warranty unless it creates a structural issue. If you are driving while roads are salted, we recommend storing the rack when not in use for extended periods and rinsing it after use to get the maximum lifespan. We've taken the best steps possible to prevent corrosion, but salt is still the enemy.
Surface tarnishing of the stainless parts can be prevented and remedied. For more information, see FAQ - Corrosion
