@BKCTX what brackets are those? Will be useful to others!
They are custom brackets that were designed and built by a former member, @brett. His build is detailed here. They're made from Yakima X-Tower mounts and some aluminum bar that he drilled to spec. I had seen his build and thought that the design of these had the best chance of fitting with the rack. So I reached out to him in the off chance he still checked this account and I got lucky!

Boxed rack on my rack, but this box is special. It is going on a plane, while others have gone ground. Flying mostly over water.

Rack on a rack on a rack, both heading west. Too big for post office, this wasn’t the drop off. Very windy day, tying was more critical than with unpacked racks.

Thanks roxterra! Got my rack. All the way to Hawaii. It's looking good. Prepping it now to raptor bedline tomorrow. Hopefully turns out good.

Got my roXterra Lowrider cargo rack yesterday. Aluminum and powdercoated and looks great! You can really see the thought that went into the design and the craftsmanship in the construction. Even my wife was impressed when she saw it. Can't wait to use it overlanding with my family.

Fits perfectly and went up easily. Only four clamps. No wind noise or vibration on the road, even at freeway speeds.

I would post a picture but haven't figured out how to do that yet. But you can see plenty of good pictures on his roXterra website. When it was delivered I got the chance to see in person his Sherpa side panels with the Rotopax gas and water containers which are pretty cool. Might have to be my next purchase!.

Raptor-lined the slim rack. Ran out of paint so gonna hit some spots I didn't fully cover. It's looking good. Longest part is prepping. Scuffing up every shiny aluminum part and decreasing. But I'm happy with the results. Looks good so far. Can't wait to set it on the X.

Looks great @Candiman, a bit rougher than powder coating, but it will take abrasion better, like muddy shoes up there? :)

@Argan black on white looks classy, a concealed look that looks stock.
I really like dark gray on red (like mine) but for any other color I prefer black. Even on red Black looks great!
Or maybe I prefer black on any color when looking at this picture

Roof rack use #127: broken wheelbarrow
  • nice fit and the Thule bars wider attachment helped too
  • 46x30 inch "Accent" rugs from Walmart/online help with protecting the rack

and fixed afterwards. Huray for another 3+ years of use (good tools are worth fixing)
The 1.5 inch wide flat bar used on all racks for U bolt mounts was the right material use for sandwiching the broken and cracked plastic of the bucket.

Roof rack use #128: 10ft rug

What was the wheelbarrow for? 10,000 lb of gravel, that's how you decorate front yards in the desert
