Actually, the rubber has metal embedded in it. It's actually rather supportive. I say bolt right through it without a spacer. You'll need to take snips to the metal strip. I did anyway. It's dead center and you can't get a bolt around it. Also, it acts as a shock absorber.

Did you use EMT for that rack? Looks good! How much weight do you think it will hold?

1" EMT for the perimeter hoops and 3/4" for the floor, I'm 200lbs and I stood in it just fine before putting it on the truck, I'm not planing on putting much weight in it, it will be used to mount lights, shovel, axe, and a hi-lift jack

Looks good! I ran my wires through the center hole, and down the B-pillar. Just another option for you.

I used EMT as well, terrible stuff to weld on... How did you paint?

I just sprayed it with rubberized rocker guard, it will probably get powder coated in the spring, I'm probably going to have front, rear, and maybe side lights for camping/hunting so it might be too many wires for the hole, I might try going through the CHMSL, I'm going to mount 4 switches in the overhead console where the sunglasses compartment is now
