    Who is Xtrusion Overland?

    Xtrusion Overland made an impressive industry debut with their XTR1 and XTR3 Bed Racks. Today, after their recent acquisition of AL Offroad, they are revamping a complete line of roof racks, tailgate inserts, and more, perfect for those hitting the road.

    Xtrusion Overland distinguishes itself through a commitment to quality and local manufacturing. Every product on offer is American-made, promising top-notch craftsmanship and quality.

    Discover the XO.SKELETON:

    The XO.SKELETON revolutionizes the realm of overland adventures. This first-of-its-kind system is ultra-customizable, offering endless options from a simple bed rack to a fully configured camper setup. Imagine the freedom to design your truck bed system to suit your specific needs.

    One of the standout features of the XO.SKELETON is its unique cable management system. This allows you to keep your wiring hidden and protected, ensuring a sleek and clean look.

    But Xtrusion Overland didn’t stop at functionality. The use of premium construction materials, such as billet aluminum corner brackets and heavy-duty sleek extrusions with stainless hardware, is evident. This balance of form and function makes the XO.SKELETON a sophisticated addition to your truck.

    XO.SKELETON Quality Materials and Unmatched Craftsmanship:

    Xtrusion Overland’s reputation for quality craftsmanship is well demonstrated by their XTR1 and XTR3 bed racks. The XO.SKELETON maintains this standard, with high-quality billet aluminum and extruded aluminum as key components.

    The main structure of the system is made from aluminum t-slot extruded aluminum, which results in unlimited mounting options. The corner pieces that connect the extruded aluminum are CNC machined billet aluminum and come with covers and bolt pockets.

    The optional front, rear, and side panels are made from 7075 aluminum and reinforced with 6013 aluminum bonded ribs for rigidity. Every detail of this product speaks of quality, making it a worthy investment for any adventurer.

    XO.SKELETON Configurations:

    The versatility of the XO.SKELETON is one of its unique selling points. It can be configured as a bed rack, topper, or camper, and is compatible with a host of accessories, allowing you to customize it to fit your specific needs.

    Bed Rack Edition:

    The Bed Rack Edition is the most basic configuration of the XO.SKELETON. It comes with the main bed rack, four accessory mounting plates, and two middle crossbars. This setup is ideal for those who need to mount a roof top tent and a range of accessories, but don’t mind having their bed exposed.

    Xtrusion Overland offers a wide array of accessories, including their new Molle Side Panels. These offer unlimited mounting options, further enhancing the customization possibilities of your bed rack.

    Topper Edition:

    The Topper Edition includes the main bed rack, front panel, rear panel, and side panels. This configuration provides a secure storage option for your gear, keeping it out of the elements and safely locked away.

    The panels of the Xtrusion Overland’s XO Topper Edition are lockable and flip up, giving you unlimited access to the gear in your bed. It’s a set that merges convenience with security.

    Camper Edition:

    The XO.SKELETON Camper Edition is the pinnacle of convenience and capability. This upgrade from the bed rack and topper editions includes an ultra-slim 5.5 inch wedge style tent.

    This is an excellent option for those seeking secure storage and unlimited capabilities, with the added convenience of being able to pop-up the tent and access it from inside the XO.SKELETON. It’s the perfect companion for those long, multi-day adventures.

    XO.SKELETON Accessories and Customization Options:

    The XO.SKELETON offers a near-infinite range of customization possibilities. This system is compatible with many of Xtrusion Overland’s bed rack accessories, as well as accessories from other manufacturers that can be mounted to extruded t-slot aluminum.

    For the Bed Rack Edition, accessories can be mounted on both the inside and outside of the bed rack. For the Topper and Camper Editions, while exterior accessory mounting is limited due to the aluminum panels, the interior mounting options are endless.

    Adding or changing accessories is a breeze, allowing you to easily adapt your setup for each trip. This flexibility is part of what makes the XO.SKELETON such a standout product.

    XO. SKELETON Fitment and Applications:

    The XO.SKELETON comes in two versions: a full-height (21 inches high) and a mid-height (16 inches high). Those considering the Camper Edition will need to opt for the full-height version, as the mid-height version wouldn’t allow the camper to clear the roof of your truck.

    Xtrusion Overland offers the XO.SKELETON for both short bed and long bed trucks. It’s compatible with many popular truck models, including the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Ford F150, Ford F250, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, and more.

    This wide range of fitment options makes the XO.SKELETON a versatile solution for a variety of truck owners.

    Installing the XO.SKELETON:

    Ease of installation is one of the many advantages offered by the XO.SKELETON. Unlike other systems that may require professional installation at a high cost, the XO.SKELETON can be installed using basic hand tools.

    The system is shipped directly to you, and can be installed on your vehicle’s utilitrack or via universal grip methods for your bed rail if your vehicle doesn’t have a utilitrack. To prevent unnecessary flex in your bed with the XO.SKELETON installed, Xtrusion Overland also offers proprietary bed stiffeners.

    The necessary components and hardware are included with every order, and no drilling or cutting is required. This makes installation a straightforward process that you can do yourself.
