Overland... I love when fixes like the one mentioned above work like that. Nice work on your build! Looking forward to seeing it in action!Here is one of those simple solutions that is so great, and you wish you had thought of it yourself.
ski3pin over on WTW came up with this.
Perfect! I am going to have the Thule tracks installed, but I did not want a rack up there all the time as the added weight of the crossbars is substantial. If I can cut the weight by two thirds then I can see keeping a set of bars mounted on the roof. Now, if I can find some square aluminum tubing to match the Thule bars I can stick with my preferred brand, and reuse the mounts from the topper. Cool!
Also, Thanks for keeping me up WAY too late Reading Pauls Complete build thread! haha Quite an AWESOME Build! :Wow1: Thanks for posting.
