Yes. Bare that in mind. You could check out LKQ on eBay. They have used racks for, like, $200 with varying mileage. Could be something to look into as well?

Yup, seems like $200-300 for a used rack. Some under 50K miles.


I'm just mulling over a few options. Still driving the car for the time being.
