Custom RoofRacks, Whose building them?

been trying to get a custom roof rack fabbed up for some time, i even found the exact one i wanted and the company that made it. Tried contacting them via email to no avail and calling them gets a bit hard when i am stationed overseas. Suggestions ... ?

Your best luck is to have a wife/friend in the states call them as far as contacting them. I am in the same boat though it gets frustrating. A roof rack would be pretty awesome though....hmm I like the idea. Anyways good luck

their are a few members that have made some, for them self or other members. i’m thinking about buying me a welder, learning how to weld and building my own. also here is a thread that may help some. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...rack-poll.html

edit: also eith one of you have pic of what you want? may help, if someone comes along on here that could build it for you.

that rack looks good! and to me looks like a pretty simple design.


alos you have an Access cab? you are going to have to have someone make roof mounts. the AC cabs do not have the bolts/ roof rack mounts under the weather stripping from the factory like the double cabs do. who ever owns the truck in those pic, had to have mounts put in. idk how hard that is to do, so idk what it would coast.

the truck is sold now but the rack in its entirety installed and wired was about a grand. I have made peace with that number and i am prepared if the GD company would just shoot me a email back. Too bad i wasnt on this kick when i used to live in washington state it would have been no problem there its a 4x4 utopia out there.

Talk to any of the fab guys in here, they may not make it as a product but you can help with the design of it and get exactly what you want. That's what I'm doing for mine.
