Roof rack on rangers?

Anyone got any pics of racks and what not on Rangers? I was thinking about making something that kinda went over the cab then back over the bed alittle for when I go camping since I want a little more room. I think I have seen some people on here with them.

I believe the South American guys have them on there crew cab rangers. IMO it makes the truck look too much like a Nissan. But they sure would be handy.

A member on here put a roof rack off of a S10 on his, fit the curve nicely. I haven't seen him on here in a while though.

It was one just like this

Thats what I am talking about. I want to make something like that for mine so i can use it on trips and camping so I dont have to take my dads truck. I can kinda weld now but I plan on taking some classes during summer to get better. This would be a good project to start with.

I am thinking of doing something like that too, only on the supports, make them come out a little more so I can slip a topper under it. That, and I can make the basket wider, too.

Ya, if I made one, I would make it so I could still kinda use my tonneau cover.

HOW DO YOU GET LOGS THAT BIG ON YOUR ROOF?!?!?!? And I wouldn't have expected a topper to hold that much weight, but alright.

A fiberglass topper can hold up to 500 pounds.

I guess it depends on the topper. But I'm still wondering about how those logs got there.
