Exact reason I built mine. I was able to attach mine to the drip rail but I think you'd have to actually mount plates to the roof

your right about mounting it to the roof directly. how much did it cost to build yours? good looking truck by the way. i had a 95 f150, best truck ever built.

not a red cent, it was all scrap metal that was being thrown out. Thanks for the compliment and I'm inclined to agree with you

here's a pic of the rack
