    I had them made by a local machine shop. Cost me $80.

    Still no issues. I pull the tent off after each use and I’ve used it 2-3 times since that post. I don’t do many hard frame flexing trails or rock crawling though.

    Thank you for the information on the Front Runner bed bars, I was looking for the same setup. I spoke to them today and they told me that they have a bracket that can help with the weight distribution of the truck. Like to know what you think of it or should I go to a machine shop and have them build me one?

    They don't have a flange that sits on top of the cap like mine do, and as I run three bars the cost of those would be a lot more than what I paid because I didn't mention that I also got brackets for securing the RTT to the rails included in the $80 price. I'm in Kenya right now but I'll be back next week so I can post a drawing of the brackets that you could take to a machine shop to have made.

    Heres the fab drawing. They bolt to the bed rails.

    this is an old post... but I have a front runner roof rack on my cab and camper shell. I load it with kayks, a gun case full of recovery gear, another box with a jack and other assorted steel and walk on it no problem. I do not have the bed rack, though. But I guarantee the bed rail is the limiting piece of the equation and not the front runner rack.
