The roof rack I recently installed on my Jeep is 1.25". Here's a pic for reference. When I was looking at other racks, some were 1.75" if I remember correctly. However, this is for a Wrangler where the rack bolts to the frame. I imagine @Trotto17 , you are going to mount directly to the roof?1.5" seems a bit large in dianeter. It will be very heavy. You might be better off using 1/2" or 3/4".
Working on plans for a roof rack for my 5th Gen 4Runner. This is the specs have come up with so far, what are your thoughts? QUOTE]
Looks Good, I like it! Do you know what the total weight would be and are you mounting it to the OEM rack? I think the 5th gen roof rack max weight limit is about 135# or 140#
Looks good. I really like the idea of using chicken coop flooring for a platform!
Are you sure? That's only 0.015" wall tube, or about 3-4 sheets of paper.
