Roof Rack

I want to add a roof cargo rack.. Anyone has any recommendations to get it mounted fairly cheaply? The cargo rack cost around $200-300 then the mounting hardware costs even more!! What else could I do? not sure how I feel about bolting the rack permanently to the roof

I have a hard time thinking about putting holes in my roof to do clearance lights... let alone a roof rack. If i was going to do a roof rack i would do something along the lines of mounting it to a fiberglass (hard) tonneau cover. But thats just me

i got it done today!

I went with all Yakima.. Was able to get the Q-towers, and bars used and bought the "Megawarrior" style cargo rack.

It looks awesome and I am already starting to think of the junk I can put up there.. Definitely going to get a cheap spare 37' and mount it up there.

Thankfully this isn't my daily driver because I live in the city and the truck is about 8' 6" tall now! New fender flares and Nfab steps next (who want to buy mine?) What do you guys think?

I like it!

I've been tossing around this idea too.
