Use the search function on here, cause I've seen a lot of threads pop up in the past few weeks on this topic, more than likely one of those will have what you need. I'm not totally sure what you mean when you say legit roof rack though, if it comes off the bed its not legit

^ nice! Havent seen most of those pics! I'm having billy at brute force make something for me, when funds arrive of course. It'll be similar in function to yours, but way different in form. I love TW idea of them being tied together, gonna try and build mine modular so that the roof rack can stay attached and the bed rack can come off in the winters if needed.

I'd say that passes the test then haha. Looks good man, definitely functional and that's what counts right?

Yeah, do you notice a difference in mpg's with your RTT mounted there versus level with the top? I'm assuming there's a drop I'm just trying to figure out how drastic it's gonna be on mine.

actually its pretty close to level..the only part that really sticks up over the roof is the ladder part, only like 1-2'' about the cab for the actual tent..

and believe it or not..saw no change in mpg..when i still was rebuilding the roof rack from the roll over i still got 15-18 hwy. Which might seem low but when you consider im on 33x12.5s on stock gears with a ton of heavy armor and such..its not bad really. haven't had it on the hwy yet with the roof rack rebuilt.

i got 18mph going to and from a meet set up like this..

Just a qwik pic of my roll bar/roof rack setup..... jus one option of getting a roof rack seeing that the Xtra cab doesn't have roof rails to facilitate easier mounting of racks....



Will post up more pics soon
