Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

These pics aren't the best but since I don't have the digital camera they will have to do for now. The rack is made from 3/4" 16g tubing. I haven't finished the rear bed cover yet. The sides are made out of 1/8" steel diamond plate and angle iron. It will have a "lid" that opens with those compressed gas air shock thingies. The lid will be made out of angle and 14g steel diamond plate. Any questions let me know. Later

Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

Here is a top view. The bed is 1/8" steel diamond plate as well. I have added about 200lbs of diamond plate, almost all over the rear wheels. Very smooth ride. Maybe I'll use aluminum or 14g diamond plate next time.

Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

Hey Bakes5,
Nice rack, I am still trying to find myself the right "mobile bike rack" like yours. What kind of bike is the yellow one? Do you bike alot? Ever been to Moab or CO biking? Nice rig, if you see one let me know please.

Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

The pics turned out a lot darker than they were on my computer. I will get some more that are better soon. The bike is a Santa Cruz Tazmon. I used to bike all the time, now I get out about once a week. Been to moab many many times..sweet biking. Will be heading up there again around thanksgiving time, should be fine unless a freak snow beats me there. Later

Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

Nice work. As soon as I learn to weld, I intend to build something very similiar. Did you have the thing powder coated or painted?

Re: Pics of my scrambler with safari rack

Curious, how did you attach the rack to the jeep? Ive seen the type that clamp to the roll bar and the ones that attach to the windshield hinges and go back to the rear bumper. I am going to build one this winter, but I'd like to build it so I can use my soft top still.

Everyday travel is off-roading in this town....

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
