here's a diy roof rack i put together Dec.2020.
Superstrut, some hardware, commercial black coated steel grid, flat bar, 32" slim led bar.
No welding. Just a drill, jigsaw & hacksaw, and hand tools.
I'd have to double-check receipts, but I'm pretty sure the total investment was less than $175.
Just wanted to add to the gallery of possibilities for anyone looking to do something creative...
How much of a difference in length is it between front and rear crossbars? I did just a rough measurement, and both from and rear crossbars measured the same length.
