Thanks, Tony!

Rola roof rack should be here any day, and then some Rigid Industries Dually Spot lights should follow to go on it!

Re: Coops "Silver Surfer" Build Thread

Are you gonna ditch the hand turn adjusts for bolts and flip the Rola Rack mounts? It'll lower the rack about an inch closer to the roof. Looks way better that way IMO.

Yes please go into further detail about this. I think it would look much better lower.

Sorry fellas that will cost an extra $32.99 for that info... I kid I kid. I can't find the exact thread right now, but you would need to remove the hand turn handles and replace them with a bolt of the sake thread pitch. Then take the Rola mount that comes for the cross bars and flip it upside down. Waalaa! Lowered an inch!

Re: Coops "Silver Surfer" Build Thread

Ok so after checkin it out, first replace the hand knob on the cross rails with a bolt and then mount the rack with the mounting hardware upside down. It should lower it an inch+ all together and make it more low profile!





Just turn the whole bracket upside down


Like this! Thanks from Russ from 4XGs pic


We'll see how it looks when it comes in and I mount it!

Yup! So the rack sits on the roof cross bars instead of the pads.
