I had to buy a die for my bender. Found a used one for under a 100 so I picked it up. Otherwise I'd have to buy new at over 150. Also I'm gunna be making tube fenders so 1" will look good for that.

Dunno. If I do put lights on the A-pillar they will be smaller or round LEDs.

Ver 2

Cut it down 1/2" and added a front cover with a hole for wire or wire loom.

So I built me a little roof rack for my new, to me, LED light bars.

It's made of 1" thin wall tube. $24 for the tube, $10 for the grating, a few cans of paint, bed liner, stop leak spray and misc nuts/bolts. Bending the tube.






Cutting some scrap diamond plate for the supports.






Upper and lower tubes welded together.












Cross braces cut and in and grating test fit.









Light bar test fit.










Roof supports, 4 each side. They sit in the roof channel. 1" x 1/8" bottoms with diamond plate uprights. I RTV'd them in and used a can of stop leak spray on the base and bolts to help seal them.










Test fit rack to roof supports.








Taped off roof. Bought plastic snap in plugs to fill the original roof rack holes. RTV'd them in. Then 2 coats of bed liner.






Ready to weld grating on




Grating welded in.

Spent a few hours putting mud on it. Then a few hours pressure washing the mud off it. Still gotta clean the inside. I hate mud.

Did you paint your jeep yourself? What did you use?

OK. I was curious. I painted mine myself also. Used engine enamel in low gloss black. Did you use any clear coat or anything else?

No clear coat. I get too many dent and scratches. I find it easier just to touch it up again with the rattle can.
