I like the jungle jims racks because there are no pins to to put in and take out. One simple spring loaded lever and that's it.

Yellow is the standard color and has been since the company started. There are knockoff racks being sold on e-bay, but I wouldn't buy them. I'd rather spend the money on the original product.

Let me chime...
I live in charlotte and bought the 1st set of racks. The fabricator lives about 10 minutes from me. I bought them from him directly. They are "ok"
They tend to shake a lot since they are bolted to the top of the rail. And if you hit a bump your trimmer will jump off the rack. Well, the "trimmer" side will jump off since there's nothing holding it in securely.
Your trimmer won't spin tho!
You'll also have to buy 3 locks for that one rack.

I now have a 3 tier jungle jim rack on. Bought it off of ebay brnad new for $100 shipped. PM me if you want the sellers ebay I'd. If you go straight thru paypal, he'll sell you the 3 tier for $100 shipped.
My trimmer and edger tend to spin with these jungle jim racks tho. Maybe I need to adjust the pins that hold the trimmer end in place
