    Building your own roof rack.

    Thanks for all of the info! It will help me a lot when I decide to make a new one and also anyone else that is looking to make one. One thing I would definitely do is make the sides a little taller I believe mine where 4 inches high but I think I would do like 6 inches or something that way...
