Post Pics of Roof racks

Hey guys, im tossing around the idea of a roof rack, if you could post up your pics and just some general info that would be great.. I.e, how strong the roof rack is, if it will hold up to wheeling(being hit with branches and what not)..

thanks..

no roof racks like being hit by tree's ever something will brake. what you can do is run guide wires alot of guys do it over sea's for branches


ranger roof isnt strong enough for a rack and then putting things on it.. best thing is to mount on a camper top they can hold tires and lot more depending on brand

that's what I eventually want to do to my truck. But my rack mounts a little bit higher (it mounts to the sides.. and since my camper is a "low-profile" one w/ bit windows, i can't mount it any lower).

What brand is the basket? Any close-ups for the basket?
