Cherokee safari rack
I have a 97 Cherokee and I'm thinking about building my own safari rack. Any suggestions on dimensions, things to consider, etc.?
This is the one I'm currently building. It has a welded steel base with aluminum angle that is 1" by 1" 1/8th" thick pop riveted together. It's 48"s by 69 1/4". Still have to fab some gutter mount brackets. Hopefully this will give you an idea. The steel floor came off a Kobota zero turn shipping crate I got from a buddy at tractor supply. The aluminum I got for free from work. So I won't have much in it when it's done.
if you wheel it hard remember they will be ripped off by big branches trees when your off camber and occasionally dented by rocks when your crapping your pants really off camber in the wrong spot (Yes experience with the 3) if I had to do it again I would have went a little more narrow than wide. and when you tear it off the raingutter drip molding are stupid expensive and only glued on.
