    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew the dimensions of the roof rack mounting holes or where I could find these dimensions. I have an OEM rack on my truck right now but want to fabricate my own brackets that fit the factory holes so I don't have to drill into my truck. I want the new brackets to be able to hold an aftermarket roof basket/rack.

    Thanks for any help!

    I was afraid I was going to have to do that. Just thought I'd see if anyone knew off the top of their head or if someone knew where to find it. Thanks

    I've been working on a roof mount myself, and I believe that I went out and measured the centers at roughly 52mm up front and about 72mm in the rear.

    WARNING: Just case I measured them at that doesn't mean that's what they really are.... I had no means of measuring accurately, and only had a sewing tape to do the measurements I did get

    :D
