Hey guy's (and the 3 or 4 girls too),

So I am gearing up for a big 6 week long on/off road trip of Canada and America. I wanted a rack that would meet the following:

Must: Be able to carry snowboards, jerrycans, firewood, have space to mount my back up lights, be compatable with shovel mount, Hi-Lift mount and STILL fit in a garage!!! There were none, so I built my own.

Sneek Peek:



the process:











The mounts: 2 1/4" exhuast tube cut in half, wth 2 1/4" clamps and 1/4" bar stock between:
















AND DONE!!!









Fully loaded:





After thoughts/notes
I painted the two flat bars inside the storage box. They are now painted black without worry of rust. The pics were taken before I was fully done! FYI

I LOVE THE BOX. Well, I love the entire rack, but the lock box is super cool.

Nice job man!

Great looking rack. Would be really nice for someone who has fabricated one of these to post the measurements to make one of these for us non-engineer types :scratch:. You know.....someone who has already measured, cut, welded, and fitted one successfully........just sayin' :tard: Or am I really a 'tard and its already posted here somewhere???

The Yakima and rear light integration is very nice, as well as the lock box. The only other thing I'd want to add for the trip is a bike, or two. I guess that wouldn't be on the roof necessarily. Travel safe.

Is it wrong that your X turns me on? If so, I don't want to be right.
