    Well to late already got most of it off but not a bad idea!

    So i havent put it on yet partly cause its cold and shitty out side and have nothing coming up to use it yet! Hopefully soon though.

    I did place one of the bars on top of one another and it will work. It sits about 1/2” above the side rails. Just need to go get some more hardware to do it all.

    @Coop68 I measured it, I think the bolts are short 1/4"-1/2" inch, couldn't measure it great, but probably need longer bolts than supplied with the tent.

    I can guess we will need around 2.5 to 3.5" since the cross bas are 1x2 two of them stacked is 2" plus need about another inch or two to work with for threads. was going to start there but I will head to local hardware store I have here should have what I need planning on taking two bars with me. if I get a chance ill try and swing by this afternoon on my way home.

    I think they were M8 if I remember. I don't recall the length. I bent the brackets instead of using longer bolts since mine was attaching to tubing anyway. I can go size them in a few

    M8 × 75mm does the job great with the double stack bars. Ill get pics later. Ive also got the adjustable smittybilt feet on order, may or may not Need them, the added clearance will be good either way.

    Maybe for future iterations, having the rails spaced closer to the side of the car would make it allot easier to access the fixings Chandler. Really just for those with big hands and prinsu or low profile racks, haha.

    hey i have a question....can you put anything on the roof of this tent...like say i wanted to toss a light kayak on top of it would that work and do you think the struts would be enough to lift it with say 30lbs on the roof?

    I have this tent. I was thinking about mounting a solar panel on top and the struts are more than enough to hold that but at 30 pounds you will probably need to replace the struts. I'm not sure how it will go then if you don't have any weight on the roof, it might be too hard to close.

    Stop thinking and buy one guys... this is such a bad ass tent. Some are concerned about insulation and I must say I have used mine in 15 degree weather and I was warm and cozy. If you were to bring a small heater you would be sweating in minutes... hurry guys, don't slack like I did on the first gb

    Was going to ask, what heaters do you guys use? I figured you wouldn't need to go propane and hook something electric up to car?

    Personally I wouldn't, its not designed for a load on the roof.

    lol, unfortunately that would require a new mold which would be pretty expensive and at that point you might as well redesign the whole thing. Am I the only one the unbolts the bars from the side rails and bolts the to the tent first, It takes me 5-10min at most by myself mounting the tent without an real effort
