I also cannot see the link from pdcomm, but I have seen a stand type thing that goes in the hitch receiver to make a bar the same height as the roof. Throw a rolled up towel or something on the roof and strap it tight.

Ordering SYE tomorrow. Finally.

Since my A/C broke and its cheaper to remove the doors than fix it I think that's what I'm doing tomorrow. What size bolt is it that's supposed to keep the doors from sagging? I can probably pick up a shouldered one from work that'd fit.

This is kind of along the lines of what i was thinking. I mean the 6ft bed is pretty much useless for hauling anything long. And since the truck is high i really dont want to do the bottom in the bed, top sticking out above the roof thing. I think parallel or close to parallel is the way to go.

Refresh my memory, do xj's have raingutter roof racks stock? Im not looking for a whole rack, just one support if you will. Thinking of throwing that up on the roof to support the canoe/kayak. It would make it alot easier to load and secure and wont hurt the roof.

Not as far as I know. They are attached to the top of the roof. Yakima and Thule make some. Or get some of JCRs clamp on mounts and weld your own. They are also removable. Could be like a low pro roof light mount/boat hauler.

The rain gutter and roof rack are two different things.

I want to lock my axle

So I'm thinking weld it. Spiders are cheap $5 at the u pull for four. So am I missing any thing in this decision?

You'll be lookin' for a new axle when you change your mind.

Why I'd weld two gears and two gears together so they can still come out of the carrier if I don't like it.

Me and a buddy built one for his taco. We started by building a very basic headache rack. Then came out of the receiver hitch with a 90*upright wit a cross bar on top of that. Then two small caps on each end that came up above the cross bar to stop side to side movement. Simple and word great.
