    I used 1-1/4" EMT for my rack. Just over 1-1/2" OD. Nice and light, and cheap. Could always use that for the crossbars

    Home Depot. Grind of the galvanization around where you will weld it.

    Measure the outer diameter of the existing tubing... Get the same size!

    No clue what most builders use for bumpers. For strength I would use 1.75" x .120 tubing

    Eh. It's cheap, easy to bend, and light. Although my rack is over 100 pounds now...

    Yep. Just picked up a used 'yak. Rack should be done in another week or so. RTT may take a bit longer though.

    Why so heavy?

    I so far have mounted my fire extinguisher using this mount:
    http://www.quadratec.com/products/98003_19X0_PG.htm

    A shovel using some hose clamps and quick fists and I have my spare tire strapped to it using a ratchet strap...

    I was thinking of welding some sort of tire mount plate to secure the tire better.


    Sweet! Its ok if you don't have a RTT lol!
