An idea came to me while looking at the awesome pics of these rack installs. Feel free to use them if you think it would be viable.
Cut and place squares of, say, 1/16" or slightly thicker steel, oh, 2-3" square, under each attachment point on the outside of the topper, as a way to spread the load across a wider surface area, and seal it accordingly, with paint,powder coating, and whatever spooge you see fit to use.
