Dang Putin price hikes!!

Found a 2 on ebay for $234 shipped:


Any of the PN “ACC-RR0X” racks should work so long as the dimensions are:

5"H x 32"W x 52"

The RR01, RR07, etc. just have different mounting hardware based on the golf cart models.

I am debating putting the Cross Bars back on..
While toying with the idea I placed them back in (both ends had to be fully removed to re-install but they do get back in with some wiggling) to see what they'd look like and I noticed that they had to be pushed back into place a bit as the tightening of the U-Bolts on the CDL Rack actually put the strain inward on the support rails versus outward.
I wonder if over time this could cause an issue with the mounting on the support rails.

Regardless. I think that replacing one or both of the crossbars could be very advantageous.

I just painted them black with Rust-Oleum and will fully install them when they dry. See photo below for the mockup.

I intend to drill some holes in them and use them for brackets/anchors for future tools/rotopacks etc.

My theory is that they will add to the overall stability of the roof platform, serve as a safety if one of the U-Bolts snaps (which did happen to my first U Bolt when I overtightened), and serve to provide additional mounting points.

I welcome any feedback or ideas. View attachment 145339

Did you notice any wind noise while driving at certain speeds?
