Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack
Right now the rack is painted. I was considering powder coating, hurculiner, or even a rhino liner type coating and probably will for my next one, but this thing was so cheap (probable less than $30 in metal) that I could build 5 or six of them for the price of getting it "properly" coated.
As far as attaching it to the jeep I built a "hoop" that attaches to the side windshield frame rain gutters for the front and it clamps to the roll bar in the back with about 18 inches of overhang (just covers the rear seat). I used and expanded metal for the floor but am considering aluminum diamond plate on top of that to combat the oppressive el paso sun. The bikini top works well but it doesn't shade rear passengers and it flaps loudly against the rack on the highway.
I wish I had some better pics, I will try and get some out in the next few days. later
