How much do the tents run weight-wise? I had a rack on my LJ when I bought it and found quite a nice difference when I pulled it off.
I already have a rack, a Smittybilt Kargo Master, but no accessories (no basket, whatever else there might be...). It might be fun to build a platform for a tent.I was recenlty looking into a roof tent myself and I ran into this one from smittybilt:
A few years ago I had a rack made for my TJ which allowed the crossmembers to be unbolted and got extra corssmembers made, this way I can easily remvoe them to change accesories or change the tops. Looking at the pic you posted it seem the rack you are looking at will do the same.
I have the same rack as you do and the tent bolts right up to it without a platform or anything else for that matter. I just turned the long bars on their side so the bump in the bars was poited to the side rather than up. Drilled new holes and off you go!I already have a rack, a Smittybilt Kargo Master, but no accessories (no basket, whatever else there might be...). It might be fun to build a platform for a tent.
Sometimes I am a toss and turn sleeper.
Make one wrong roll and THUD!!!
Impact the ground 7 feet below...
I might need side rails!
For now, the rack is perfect for canoe transport and trips to Home Depot for lumber.
