have 2 options i am playing around with..

1) alum mounts with reinforcing the roof like i did the roof rack on grants cap..(about 1" or so how grants truck looked)

2) getting a 1998-2001 like roof rail system. cutting it down and putting the end caps back on it for a clean look and mounting it to the rails. then reinforcing the roof.. (as high as a rails on an explorer...

I don't really like the looks of it on a stepside. If it won't be holding a tire, just bags, it kinda screams out "tourist" which makes me dislike it even more.

envision 12 lights

our roofs can NOT handle tires even with the reinforcing i will be doing.. unless i go hogwild and put a roll cage in it.. which in time it will have..

personally i love the look... and its somewhere to mount lights.. come on winks, i have to have lights!!!

I've seen them with tires on them with no reinforcement, its doable! I may be swayed with the lights, but with no tire.... I dunno.
