Does anyone know who makes an aftermarket roof rack for an 87 K5?
I know there are some that bolt to the topper. I too would like to find one, but that just attaches to the cab roof.

Wilderness Roof racks maked one. I got one last year, any questions just ask..pics at my website too
Boy it must be nice to have lotsa $$ to give to all these manufacturers for thier tire racks and roof racks. In my books there is nothing better (or cheaper) than building it yourself (or getting it built). That way its exactly what you want. Check out my truck built on a very tight budget. I dont have pics of my roof rack, but as soon as I get home (Friday) I will be updating my website. Check it out... cant hurt to save some bucks...
I know heschers make them. Some heschers who owned a Ford Fairmont made a really nice one, trashed the station wagon, and I got their rack for $14 American. It's great for hauling my PVC dome around (gotta practice for Burning Man! ), ladders, kayaks, and whatever. I am sure your local welder could make you one for pennies compared to what a company would charge you. Sketch what you want, and take it to the welder and get an estimate. It will be cheaper than you think.
Anyway, here is a pic that shows mine.
Oops! Here is the pic, sorry.

Thanks Guys.I would build one too if it was me.I was actually asking for a friend.He's trying to build one of them pretty street K5s and was asking me about goodies for it.It was pretty when he got it,Too bad he had to turn it over.
Thanks for the idea. Believe me, I would if I could.
I've never learned to weld. Don't have much capability for bending/fabricating metal. And, actually, my building skills are pretty crappy, anyway. If I did get something together, it wouldn't look anything like what I was trying to get to.
So, it's not that I have unlimited $$$$, but that I do know my limitations.
