I purchased the smittybilt 77717 roof rack. The rack is rattling driving me insane. I changed the bolts for new 3/8 bolt nuts instead of the Allan key with garbage so I can wrench the roof tight dint change anything. Getting desperate need help anybody!!!!

Welcome to the forum! It might be worth giving Smittybilt a call and see if they have any advise on reducing or eliminating rattles and noise.

Unfortunately troubleshoot rattling can be very annoying and frustrated! Have you tried losing up all the bolts and re tighten them?
I was looking into the same rack a while ago. Currently I do have their rock sliders, door hinges side steps and tailgate tire carrier and they works well. I cannot speak for the others but I do have very positive experience with their customer support. I lost or broke some bolts during the installation and they sent me brand new extra hardware without any extra cost and they shipped quick too! Give them a call :)

Racks will rattle, even the real expensive ones just simply because there are lots of joints. You may try putting a heavy water proof grease on the joints. And rubber washers on the bolts.
