    Seems pretty legit. How could I stake them together and mount them on my voodoo rack?

    Voodoo bed rack? Not sure. These pins come in different lengths so find a length that works with how many you’ll be stacking. These are 3” pins. FYI. Also, Never seen voodoo in person. Use doording’s method if the tracks are longer than the cross bars. Mount a 1/4” sheet of acrylic down as a base and use bolts/pins where the x-bull holes line up.

    You have pics of the voodoo rack?

    You could do something similar to what I did. Buy 4 hitch bolts with the cotter pin holes (in the hardware specialty drawers at Lowe’s or HD). Buy a piece at least 28” of flat bar. Holes are 9 1/2” apart so I did two 14” pieces just to have extra room. And 4 bolts, washers, buts to secure it to the rack. I just walked up and down the hardware isle today at Lowe’s till I found what would work. Overbought options and returned the unused parts.

    For the pins, since they’re not threaded I drilled out holes slightly smaller in the angle iron than the pins and pressed/hammered the pins through the holes. Then jb welded them in place to keep them if they ever loosen up from falling out. They’re solid though. If you use all steel you can tack them in place.

    Thanks for the visual!

    I wonder if the 3rd gens are worth the extra 30$

    They did yesterday. 3 days for shipping on Amazon prime. 90$ shipped for the 3rd generation boards.

    Color - green. They aren't the glossy neon green pictures. They have a matte finish.

    They are listed as being 48" long, they're only 43". Which works out better for me. They'll fit inside the bed next to my water jug instead of on the roof rack.

    They seam solid for what they are. They don't feel cheap or junky. Appear to be well made. I don't have a set of 500$ ones to compare them too but look like they'll serve their purpose

    Was looking for the best deal as a Canadian.
    I was considering getting the x bulls off Amazon com and having them shipped to the border but it can be a waste of my time. Did some more searching on eBay and Amazon.ca as it seems they have a ton of names for the same product depending whoa selling.
    Found these:
    https://m.ebay.ca/itm/361922119657?_mwBanner=1
    For 130$ CDN shipping and import included I figures I couldn't go wrong and ordered.

    Can anyone tell me the distance between the center of the handles? I have an idea for mounting them to my RTT Straps.
