Here's mine: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f37/r...-take-1106444/ .

I left the ends open so I could haul lumber on it, and I'm really happy I did.

If I built it again, I'd use all 1x1x16ga. steel. Mine has heavier gauge load bars, but once it's all welded together, 16ga. would be more than strong enough.

The JCR rain-gutter mounts are great. I think it's worth the extra money to get six instead of just four.

The spray-can bedliner is worthless. If I had to do it again, I'd just pay the price to have the whole thing sprayed with real bedliner, or powder coated.

Good luck!

Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader...!
