I uses some scrap angle iron, then boxed the ends.

Came out clean the roof rack serves as a great entry point for the wiring to be ran into the cab. The bolts are 6mmx3 1/2" I think. The lights were from advanced auto fo 20 a pair. They are solid dont wobble and are bright as heck. One tip is to not lay the iron flat on the rack. It will flex and hit your sunroof if its in the vent position. Same with square, because it is one inch further back then.

I had to drill into the cap and sealed it with a rubber grommet, and I had to drill into the cab, pretty simple once you have it all apart and see what you have to work with. Maybe took me an hour to drill, wire, and test. the build took about 4, measuring, cutting, grinding, welding, painting, and testing. I would probably angle the ends a bit to match the rails better, and use black chrome hardware, if I was to do it again.

pockets you could easily make it detachable for kayaks i think if you would cut main wire outside the roof and put those prong connectors on each end of the cut wire then just un-prong and detatch the roof rack crossmember, and insert another. You would then have to find another roof rack crossmember. But if understand at all my big explanation, it just may work.

Do you have any pics of them close up? How much trimming/ fabricating did you need to do before they were mounted?

Yeah I was thinking a quick disconnect and also thinking about using a factory cross bar to mount it to. I'll figure something out lol
