      I just went to home depot today (in a rush they closed in 30 mins) and purchased 3 4x8 3/4 sheets of MDF. Without even thinking that they were a bit large to be placing in my truck. Well i carried them out with the help from my friend, and found that even if the wood was placed in the truck so that it would touch the back of the drivers' head it still stuck out a few feet. It eneded up being quite interesting getting it to fit. I had to drive home at around 20 mph, but it ended up working :D ! oh btw this was in michigan at 7 at night, it was around 0 degrees out :thumbdwn:

      You didn't try placing them on the roof?

      A couple of months back I bought 4 sheetrocks at HD. Knowing they would not fit inside, I was kind of worried placing them up on top.

      They actually fit better without the crossbars and since I am lowered, sliding them in place was extra easy. :cool:

      We were redoing my friends basement, so I went to get more drywall sheets. Well they fit, but never go without help (his sister who came along was useless, so I had to do it myself), luckily some other customers came to my rescue when they saw I was stuggling to get the sheets on the roof.

      i did bring a friend with me lol, or i would've been screwed. Those sheets are heavy! I would have put them on my roof, but we were in a hurry and my roof was covered with ice and snow. It wouldve taken twenty minutes to clear it off at least, and then i had most of my luggage rack off anyways, so there was no way to tie it down. Im happy i have it now though, i can finaly build my subbox!

      Standard plywood is 4'x8', and will fit. MDF is 4'1"x8'1".... thats where the problem lies.

      He did the right thing. Instead of starting a new thread, he searched and found that the info he wanted already existed - so what if the thread is a few months old. :thumbsup:

      Is the 100 pound weight limit just for the roof rack?
