I too think it would make a good frame for a soft-frame topper. Kind of like the Army 7 1/2 or 2 1/2 ton trucks. Be cool if there could be a seperate cover that would slip over the top to seal it up. Something heavy/waterproof.
1.5" tubing? That's pretty thick, and heavy. Maybe 1" would be plenty? I don't know for sure, just spitballing.
Mounting on the bed seems solid, but it would be nice if there was an easier way to keep the bed tracks accessable. Maybe just have 3 seperate bed-mounts, instead of a solid piece? Don't know how that would affect stability or sturdiness.
Definetely cool if it had pre-drilled light mounts. or for that matter, be the standard size (as someone else mentioned) for accessories.
If this is going to be a production item, maybe have the option for something taller than the cab? Like I said, it looks to be a great frame for a tent-like topping, so headroom could be important to some.
Thank you for posting your initial thoughts!
We are taking into consideration all the thoughts to make our products even better. The canvas cover is something we have been thinking of but is not yet in production. As far as the ability to make the rack system taller that is no problem at all! Making it shorter requires us to weld the rack together or sell it as a weld together only kit. As far as the light tabs, we have 4 total at each corner. These can be used for lights, CB's, etc.
Thanks again for your input!
