dude that roof rack is sick. are going to put 5 lights in it?

for the gate, did you buy that spring and pin thing, thats held in by the set screw (if so where?), or somehow make it? Sorry, i just haven't been able to have much luck choosing hinges for my gate but your setup is perfect. keep the projects coming haha

i like how you strengthened the roof rack with that upper bar that extends to the rear of the bed. I bet that added a lot of strength.
