did you say you wanted to enter the POTM contest with that rig? 8) {cool}

how did you mount your roof rack? On the rain gutter on the rear and over the doors? 4 mounting points and that's it?

Well, there's 4 mounting points on the 4 corners, but there's 4 more (or is it 2? don't member) under the spare tire. Drilled right through thick rubber 'gaskets' on the lid. Although I now need to replace the rubber (on the list). This isn't anything I would've done in South Texas, but you can get away with a lot in the desert.

Yea me and a buddy made it. The front bumper is for a Chevy I think, it needed some fabbing to fit.

I'll post some good shots of it later, although it may be a while. I only use a 35mm camera.

The bumper was pulled off of a Cheby and fabbed a bit. The safari rack instructions go like this:

Check back ally. Look for gates or pool fence. Start cutting. Become friends with guy with good welder. Look as pathedic as you can when discussing your plans for rack. Act suprised when he says he welds.

Measurements-
Sit on top of truck with a tape and a magic marker. Have welding buddy throw stuff to you.

Fab- Make a square. Put rails on it. Put feet on it.Cut an old rear axle and attach to square for spare tire. Make sure there's a nice opening for your RC flip up vent door thingy.

Paint- "Tell it you love it with Krylon!"

Sorry, hope your weren't expecting Paul Tuttle! ;D

They're off a semi truck (don't remember what kind). They're concave and awesome! I can see the tree banches I'm backing into ripping a hole in my spare and the cliff I'm about to back off at the same time!

Very nice ride.

Although I wouldn't want to be the one to carry down the spare tire if you had a flat on the way to church. ;D

That thing is so sweet. I'm gonna do my beast all in black like that now. What kind of tires are those anyways? Aren't those the fun country kevlars? I think that's what they're called. How much were they, who did you go through, etc. I was looking at buying a set for my beasty when I finally lift it.
