I went and checked this out at the junk yard, I also have a yakima Loadwarrior I am going to mount from my jeep i sold. It would work but you will have to drill small self taps in the roof, and the second bar lock on the rail wouldnt lock because you would have to cut it shorter. The early 2000's frontiers luggage racks would work great and fit but they cost just as much or more thatn the yakima bars and q-towers. I found some used q towers with bars for 30 with shipping on ebay. I think I see what your thinking becasue q-towers makes it sit so high from the cab and not look uniform.

Did the birds get to that first truck... looks like those roof racks make good perches?

I have seen a ranger with a roof rack on it quite often around here and it has offroad lights mounted on the rack as well, it made me consider to do the same but I dont know who owns the truck but it looked awesome.

What did you fall in some crud or something? I'm not one of your eight year olds that'll believe that. Shut up Steve. TommyBoy
