you could... on some of the other forums a couple guys have done that. Seeing as it wasn't designed to mount that way, I didn't do it.
One guy set his rack on the side rails, then drilled holes into the side rails and used a "J" hook, hooked the "J" to the rack, put the threaded part down through the hole and bolted it down that way...
Another guy made little aluminum brackets that fit into the side rails, and then he attached them to the rack.
I've been yelled at once for posting links to the "other" forums... so that's why I'm not putting them up
