Kilar rollback reviews

Brady Caul

Recommended Posts

We have had a couple Jerr-Dan carriers now a 10,000 and 12,000. I’ve been looking around at new trucks. How do the Kilar 15,000 beds compare to others? We’ve had great luck with Jerr-Dan. Just looking at my options. We do run a lot of dirt roads and I was wondering how Kilar would hold up having greasable rails

I personally am a Jerr-Dan, Century, Chevron kinda guy. There is a couple of guys around here that have Kilar rigged trucks and in my opinion they just seem cheaply built. One thing that stood out for me was the tilt piston mounts on the frame. My Jerr-Dan has  boxed-in and gusseted L shaped mounts whereas the Kilar is just  flat plates with the pivot pin run through it. The Kilar headache racks look flimsy and dont scream out quality to me at all as well. Again, this is Just my opinion. I dont mean to insult anyone out there who reads this and has Kilar gear. I will stick with my Name brand gear though..

I had a Kilar wood/steel carrier on my last truck and it worked just fine, my new Hino has a series 10 Kilar aluminum bed and it also does just fine. I have used JerrDan, Danco, and Century beds they all hauled what was asked of them. The Danco was the lightest most flimsy bed of the bunch but it was from the 90's so it's probably not relevant.
