Roof rack

Recommended Posts

So I don't have pictures of a roof rack or one built for that matter but I was wondering if you guys would be interested in having one built.I am having one made, just want to know if any one else wants one.Shoot me your thoughts,as I am going to get the ball rolling on my rack by next week I hope.The guy that did my bed skirts would be the guy making them.

I may indeed want one, the ones I've seen were a little high on the roof, high tall wise.

 

But I think they look pretty darn sweet, what's the price range?

I'm playing with the idea also... Have a old one sitting around from my wife's first gen XB, doesn't sit too high at all. I believe it's a Yakima brand.

No price yet but when i get something i wil let you know.Holidays are here and alot of guys are calling out and there is alot of overtime so like today im working and the next yada yada days.But yes low profile and i want to get more designs idea's from VW's.And it wil more then likely be all metal but i am thinking of wood slats to.Just dont know what i want yet.Also color or powder coat will more then likely be a silver.

Your telling me. I average 150 - 170 hours in a each pay period. I get paid on the 1st and 15th. We're lucky I guess. I tell the guys better to be over employed than under employed.

I like the idea of the roof rack, but I have never seen one that I have actually liked on a truck.

 

And while the old VW type ones are cool, also think of how all those old VWs are pretty round.
