quit complaining... get it done, :hehe: just kidding good job man,

looks incomplete for some reason though probably because im used to seeing them with expanded steal or cross bars, etc.
there is a nice one ive seen though that had spider web design might be something youd look at and add to yours...

Yeah i dont wanna do the spyder look. And it is incomplete lol going to raise it when i get my riof rack and throw spotligh on this rack and the front of the roof rack.

I might do a net design on he head rack. Took me long enough to get this one to fit perfect. I wentthru 3 design plans on the pillars. And had to do 3 diff mounting setups till i found the most solid one with a 3 bolt mounting space
