    recently moved to a new house and under the rear deck is a perfect condition [​IMG] 8' rack with lights around the perimeter, and it has mounting brackets but no attaching hardware. how do i install this on my truck????
    i am not concerned about the removable top, as i have never removed it.
    <font color=blue> what is this thing worth???? <font color=black>

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?

    I just drilled the holes in the top and out some bolts in with a rubber washer to seal it from the rain. Squeeks a little but it works fine. Mybe a little grease will deter the squeeks.

    They have mounts that you can use for the front gutters. Kpanza from this site has a 6' rack that is mounted half on the metal mounted with the gutter mounts and half on the topper with the same set up as mine.
