    Welcome to TW!

    That is an awesome looking rig! I love the bumpers and the winch. Is your spare mounted to the bumper on a swing arm?

    Where did you get your wheels? If you don't mind me asking - how much were the wheels? I am looking for a secondary set (steelies).

    Where did you find the rails for the AccessCab? I am looking for rails for my AccessCab roof.

    Looks like you have a pretty nice lift too. What other mods do you have.

    Thanks! Yep, the tire is on a swing arm. The rear bumper was made by A.J. at Bentup.com.

    Wheels came from Wheelers OffRoad and I forget the exact price, something like $40 each. The lift is Sway-a-Way coilovers up front and OME Dakars in the rear which are also from Wheelers. I still need to order the Dakar AAL because of the heavy rear bumper.

    The rails are the Yakima Kit that you have to drill holes for. I just bought the shortest rail kit and cut them off to fit.

    Dang it! I was hoping to not drill holes in the roof. Oh well. I can still look into the wheels for my second set of tires! :D

    007,

    Not sure what your intended use was for access cab roof bars, but THULE makes a fit kit for the access cab trucks.

    400XT Aero Foot | LB58 Load Bars | 2160 Fit Kit

    In general, retail price is about $50 fit kit (adapts the aero foot to hold to the roofline of the particular vehicle) and $50 for the load bars, and $150 for the 400xt aero foot pack.

    So total is about $250 retail to rack your truck. Generally available from your local bike shop, or some places on-line rackattack.com I think, though chances are if you ask your local bike shop can match whatever price you find on-line.

    I have Thule roof racks on both my car and my better half's car for our bikes and trust them completely, and that is saying something since when the bikes are up there they more than double the blue book values of the cars. (I use a hitch rack for the bikes on the truck).

    Any questions just ask.

    Nice rig bro!!!!! Also, nice country you have up there!!!!!! Went to Vegas in may and got hitched????? The scenery blew me away though. Different on that side of the country. Also looking for roof racks and a low boy type cap with racks?? Don't really want to drill if I can avoid it, do plumbing, so I would have pipe up there and need something pretty sturdy?? Any suggestions??

    Pretty much any cap on the market can be ordered with Thule or Yakima racks mounted to it or the provision for said racks to be mounted to it.

    As far as racks on the cab of the truck without drilling into it, I found a picture that better describes what I was talking about in my previous post. The picture is of a double cab with a yakima rack, but the idea remains the same for the Thule racks and will work on the access cabs as well, or even on a regular cab with an additional short roof line mount.

    Thanks Mav... I'm still up in the air on what I want to do?? I'm looking at the cap option or a tonneau, depends on if I get a used van or something.. I like some of the safari racks I've seen.. I will say, rogersja63 has an awesome arb locker setup he posted pics of on another thread yesterday.. Takes the whole 4wheel diff and locker setup to a new relm, old school transfer case.. Very cool!!

    I got your PM. Thanks for the info! That rack is what I am looking for. I just want something to be able to mount 35-40 lbs of stuff up there. Mostly a fold-up metal dog kennel and maybe a bicycle.

    Thanks again!

    I have a pic of a tractor about 4X bigger than my truck pulling my truck out of the mud.... maybe that would work.... then again maybe it would just make taco's look worthless in the mud. Seriously though, this tractor had 6ft tires. The dude that pulled me out said it had about 135 hp and something like 1200 ft/lbs of torque. it was one mean machine. I'll try to post the pics, but i dont think they would make a good banner, they make my truck look impotent. Now i just need to figure out how to post pics on here....
