    Hey guys... I'm thinking about building myself a safari rack for my 88' Burban, and i was wondering if anybody has any close up pics/ designs for one that i could get some ideas from. Thanks in advance.

    These are the best pics of the one I built for my '77 (not very close up). Maybe they will give you some ideas. There are more pictures here. Too bad I sold that sub. I really miss it.

    Where you at in North Idaho? I grew up in Sandpoint and went to college in Moscow.

    I'm down in Lewiston, just 30 minutes south of moscow if you don't remember :)
    thanks for the pics!



    btw...how is the rack secured to the roof? is it just welded on? if it isn't...is it removable?

    I built 6 feet that were about 3 inch square. Under those I put some 1/2" rubber down, then I bolted through those to the roof. I tried to keep them near the edges where the roof has strength. Then I siliconed around the bolts good when I put them in.

    I guess it would be removable, but then you would have a bunch of holes in the roof. :)

    And, how can you forget Lewiston with the pulp mill smell? :) Nice area though.

    Thanks for the link..

    Thanks for the link, I bought a set of the Con-ferr roof mounts and used a set of 1" square tubing pieces to hold my canoe and kayaks on top of my 1990 K5 but couldn't remember where I got them.

    I have been looking for quite awhile for the website. Thanks alot.

    Looking to put a safari type rack ontop of my project when I get to it.:laugh:
