Is there a reason you are going with 1.5? Seems like overkill to be but then again, I don't know what you'll be carrying up there

gotcha, so worst case, you already know what you'll be paying for 1.5, best case, you go smaller and save money. Not bad lol

Alright, so few changes as I went, but still coming out great!

#1. I switched to 1" for the frame and 3/4 for the cross bars.

#2. I shortened it so that it wouldn't reach over the sunroof. No way to support it in the front and I did not want to drill into my new truck just yet.

#3. For now I'm going to go with a stealth style rack, just a base with no sides riding up. Want to see how it effects mileage and functionality. I will probably eventually add the top part of the basket.

So all in all its coming out great, next week I will paint and fabricate mounts for it. Check it out so far!

*side note the bars were not welded at the point I took the photos, yes I did line them up and makes sure it was all square.
