I Have An Idea What Do U Think

Alright so if i bought a campershell for my 94 and then put a roof rack on top of it then my spare tire and all those goodys. whatcha say.

its a hard decision cause it might be tacky.

Tires are heavy.. putting 50 lbs of tire on the top of an already heavy campershell on top of a light pickup will change the center of gravity by a longshot.. as well as a bit of stress on the edges of yoru bed.. if you choose to do that, you -may- think about trying to find a way to reinforce the sides of everything.

Ya know.. bedside mounted spares look pretty kickass.. Remove the one under the bed.. and fab up a mount or try findign one to purchase in between the rear of the cab and the wheel well.. right on the side of the bed there.

Hmm.. I didnt think a campershell would be able to take that stress for a long period of time.. wouldnt there be any issues with it perhaps.. minus banging on a parking lot cement ceiling
