Harbor freight atv ramps, aluminum flat bar, rivets, and 1/4" hardware, maybe $400 in materials.

Couple different ways to attach depending on what top you have but if you can build the rack you'll figure out how to mount it

Luked, that's slick. It's a super creative idea too. I love to see this stuff. Any welding or all bolted/riveted? I'd love to see it installed.

Sorry about the delay, no welding. 2" flat bar back plate and made up some brackets that tie into the edge of the rood under the top.

Just bent it over and riveted/bolted in place. You can see how I cut a few of the ramp slats to make room for the curve radius

I've bought, built, fitted roof racks on just about everything I've owned, from air cooled VW bugs and early split window buses, a couple Suzuki Samurai's, a Lance cabover camper, and my van. Yakama, wood slat factory, custom home built, vehicle specific, etc.

There's nothing like a vehicle specific custom built. Expensive, but cry once and move on. Cheap out and you cry every time you use it.
