- If you can't find the interior rack you want at your favorite outfitters, why not re-purpose a hitch-mounted carrier from Harbor Freight, or Northern Tool, to do the same thing. And, for a lot less money.
- The Adventure Trailers rack measures 45"W x 26.25"D x 5.5"H, for $570 (if in stock), while a HF rack, for an ATV, measures a comparable size of 46"W x 18.5"D, for $50. You could always fab up what you need to make it work for you, with the money saved. HF has a larger rack, measuring 51.5"W x 17.5"D x 4"H, for $65. I don't know if it would fit, but you could alter it to do so. Just my outside-the-box thinking here, and I'm cheap too; as long as it works!
- View attachment 401590 will fit in the same space as the others, when modified
- View attachment 401591 might fit, and stronger, too
Hera ya go...really straightforward. The alum angle 6061 (I think it is 1.5" x 3/16"...might be 2") I had laying around. It is used in scaffolding. Unfortunately it already had some holes drilled in it and I realized it after I cut the brackets (oh well) ... Don't worry, the hole for the factory sport bar mount is drilled next to the existing holes - but hard to tell in this photo. Looks like hell, but gets the job done and is hidden. I used large grade 5 fender washers here to spread the load over the aluminum. I used M6 flange bolts screwed into the soft top mounts. I had to run a thread cleaner (not a tap) through the factory holes as the threads were partially galled. This mounting location raises rack up off the floor quite a bit and won't work with a soft top (not a concern at the time). I used flange nuts & bolts to make it as easy as possible to assemble (I hate washers).Great job on the rack. Anymore pics of how you mounted it? Close ups of the brackets? Thanks.
