soon... the cross bars need to be 1-1/8th inch diameter and they don't sell weird size pipe like that at Lowes. So i found some on ebay for 44 bucks with shipping they will be here Thursday and hopefully installed this weekend but it is Halloween and i am in college so thats a big maybe.

It was a pretty easy install i started by assembling everything and getting everything centered and where i wanted it on my roof. then i started with a 1/8th drill bit and made my way one drill bit at a time up until i hit 3/8ths at this point the hole was barely too small but if i went the next drill but size up it would have been to large so i hit the hole with my dremel and a grinding bit.






I then touched up the marks with some paint, applied silicone to both sides of the fasteners attached the landing pads then the roof rack and DONE!!!!





Mounted up:






With the rack removed and the landing pad covers installed:

How did you get your signal lights to shine all of the time?

Looks good wolf. So the fasteners only go through the sheet metal? How strong do you say that rack is?

Yup the fasteners where actually pretty thick, and the roof was MUCH thicker than i was expecting. so i have absolutely zero worries about strength. I am not going to ever put more than 100 up there because the basket i plan to get is only rated that far. The landing pads and fasteners where rated at 150lbs and honestly i can believe it. After install i tried to "break them" and i was shaking the whole truck and the rack didn't move a millimeter.

Thanks so much that's exactly what I wanted to know. I'l be doing the same thing for my truck as it looks to be the most economical and aesthetically pleasing way to mount up a rack on xtra cabs. I've been searching for quite some time and this seems to be the solution. Cheers!
