Roof rack. Need ideas.

Hi,
I want to build a roof rack for my CCLB obs.
I just need to figure out how to safely attach it to the top.
Do you guys have any pictures or ideas ?
Thanks!

You could always use a roof rack system like Thule or Yakima. Or make some feet and drill through the roof.

I plan on making one like the desert chase trucks that actually mounts to the bed rails. I am not a fan of drilling holes in a perfectly good roof.

Are you willing to drill holes in the door jamb behind the weather stripping? That's where I mounted my roof rack. I attached a picture of my truck with my roof rack installed.

i'm using a Thule for the last 15 years, but it's cracked and kinda gimpy.

you can get the roof racks used on the VAN's that clamps onto the drip rail.
what they use to haul ladders etc. and are pretty beefy.

i've always wanted to have a sort of cab-over roof rack that attaches to my camper shell with flexible boot and "pass-through" to the front of camper shell.
