Roof Rack Installed With Pics

Well Ive had it on for about 2 moths so far but just have never posted. Its a thule moab i just used the mounting brackets and drilled into the cap, i also used nylon spacers to bump it up so it didn't rest on the cap. I also tinted my tails and de-fx4d my truck. Well onto the pics.

What did you use to mount the shovel and axe? They look like brackets that Hi-lift sells.

Nice truck, all it needs is some good ole pin striping in the bush lol

Not bad, but the stock spare tire looks super gay up there. What is the point of putting a small tire up there that would otherwise fit underneath? I mean really...

I had the spare on the roof of my sport trac but it was a 33 and wouldn't fit underneath.
