/forums/images/graemlins/burb.gifwhats the best way to put a roofrack on
if you bought one, did it come with instructions?...
i want to put one on but , where can i get the rain gutter mounts at good price or can i make them?
Ohhhh your back. Your brother tell you I had to go buy a burb because you wouldn't sell me yours? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
I'm working on doing this without those goofy bolt on gutters. I'm trying to find the C track used on a lot of roof racks in a 8ft section. It sits flat on the rood and a lot of roof racks on the market offer an adapter to go on it.
Check out how These barckets Mount to the factory style roof rack rails. That's the Channel I'm trying to find.
does anyone have a design or picture of their's? i'm thinking about making one.
Man, I'd love to get a roof rack and mount my spare up there... but then I couldn't fit in the garage anymore. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
i made mine but i still have to finixh it. when i go to mount it im just going to use some angle iron and drill some holes in the roof and put some bolts through there.
I used two black shelving strips(hardware store). They are the metal strips that mount to the wall, then utility shelves can be mounted on them. They are cheap, lowprofile and easy to mount. You can't see them from the ground...well not on my blazer anyways. They come in 24",36" or 48" lengths so cutting was not necessary.
Me and BigDummy89K5 built this one night at my work, it's bolted through the hard top and was sealed with silicone. To the best of my knowledge it doesn't leak.
He wanted it so he could carry his 11' aluminum boat...
It's fairly low profile, but it's also pretty beefy! We used a tight pattern expanded mesh for the 'floor' of it so the little stuff doesn't fall through. You can quite easily stand on it.
As for the garage fitting..yes it's pretty tight for him to get in the shop. We have near enough to the same lift, my truck is on worn 39.5's and his is on 36's and it's a tighter fit for his truck than mine.
