I've looked through this whole thread (all 50+pages) more than 3 times! I've sketched out and worked up numerous designs in CAD and I haven't been able to settle upon anything yet. But ^^^ this ^^^ design... very nice - I thank you... this is most likely the inspiration I needed to get mine all figured out. I was going to use E-Track between 1" tubing but it would create large regions of un-level floor for the rack... but using uni-strut like this would allow you to get tie downs around individual items in the rack - thus avoiding having to unstrap lots of items just to get to a single item - plus it keeps things relatively level. THANKS!!!

That is really well thought out. What was the material that you used?? The Storage subforum has several examples both pictured in the stuck topic and featured in writeups.
I modified the factory rack on my Z71 to have a solid deck, mostly for the shade on the vehicle roof. It also breaks down into two backboards. And the handhold holes are placed over the added crossbracing in such a way as to create tie-down hook locations. See link in my sig for my build topic.
