I will get some better shots tomorrow, I used the windshield bracket wholes on the front and drilled three holes on the back, and put a sandwich plate inside the wheel wheels and pop riveted that in place to make it easier to take on and off if need be. Then I used those trailer type pins with the d loop that is attatched and clips over the pin for easy swing out of the front to back braces, so the arms can swing out quickly the soft top is fully functional with my rack
Sure thing I am going to get some better pictures up in about an hour. The underside was the 3" leg of the 3x5x1/4. About a third of the way from the front you have to cut out about an inch and a half due to a dropped portion of the tub. Then the rest needs a 1" spacer I used 1" square tubing. My sandwich plate goes through that tubing. Pics to come early afternoon
When it is dry outside I will crawl under there and get you a better shot of the underside, but as the pics show it is raining here right now. My computer crashed so I lost all but a few shots of me welding during the build process, I am pretty bummed I can't show the step by step, I had some great shots of the stages.
One thing about the rockers is you should turn the bolts around so the head is outside...that is if you ever go on rocks...you will bend the bolts or stick on them with them sticking down like that...put the head on the outside so it will still "slide"...my .02 but it does look great and is definately strong...good job!!!
Yea I might grab some shorter bolts and do that. I went with Grade 8 on the whole rack and sliders. So it should withstand some abuse. When I get bored someday maybe I will switch those bolts out. Thanks for the tip.
