    You have to remember that your roof rack will add a few more inches on top of the rack. My Yakima rack will still provide enough clearance over the cab for the kayaks to sit just fine.

    Thanks for posting these OP. Please keep us updated w/ pics of how the rack mounts inside the bed using the All-Pro mounts. Looks like this product has great potential for use with an Access Rollup Tonneau.

    Jason...PM sent w/ details on the tonneau.

    It went out three times? Damn... I guess the prospect of a rack fitting w/ my tonneau is too much to handle. Seriously though, thanks for looking into it for me.

    ^^ Nice glad im not the only one thinking about the Tonneau! :D This rack has a lot of potential...!! I can also see someone sowing up a capper similar to the Soft topper to fit over this too!!.. Would be great for camping!

    So it looks like you're going to lose the capability of using the sliding cargo anchors..? I've become quite fond of using mine...

    ^ You can see that he was able to still mount them. The bed "Pack Rack" System rails still have holes about every inch and a half so you have the option to use stock tie downs or create your own! ;)

    To bad, would like it 5' shorter or so to have a RTT flush with the cab. Add some removable canvas sides andthat would be a sweet setup.

    Interesting set up... some of my first thoughts. Of course, I'm not playing with one, so take these as musings, not "faults" with the design.

    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.

    I really like the design. Add a couple more cross bars on the top for more mounting options (Like a baja/yakima/thule basket) and I'm sold. I think the height is perfect.

    You could always go to marine shop (that does canvas boat covers) and have them sew up a velcro-on top. (We had this done for the 25mm cannon on the cutter I was on in the CG).
    Or maybe somewhere like this: http://www.customcovers4you.com/covers.html

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Oh, I like that. What I need though is a rack that is able to pull rearward and down so that it can double as a ramp to allow my Dogs (Rocket and Maxine) to walk into the bed and allow me to roll my lawnmower in, too. I'll keep waiting until somebody figures that out but we're getting close!

    P.S. It would have to fit over an ARE cap and I'll be the first to buy one.

    Nope,

    Spare is still sitting in the garage.. I guess I'm gonna have to buy a bed mount for it. Looks great, but loss of space.

    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! ;)

    Hey, if you guys want to keep me on retainer for design-modification, I'm down. I work for discounts :D

    Unfortunate that you're in Hemet. I used to live in OC, my grandparents used to be out in Canyon Lake. Now I'm on the wrong coast. Would have been so easy to drive on out...

    I really like this. I am trying to figure out how you could make this work with the access limited tonneau cover (designing in my head from the pics....LOL). Then I could have the canvas shop down the road make a cover for it to use for camping.
