    Looks great! Any concerns that the loaded weight of the rack will put too much stress on the body? I read a couple of guys with T3s bending their beds out of square while off-roading after installing RTTs.

    I don’t think so. I’m probably not putting an RTT on there any time soon. I talked with the guy that makes the supports from www.compactcampingstore.com. He said if it was a big RTT that I could throw a third set on there but it should be fine. His website has a ton of photos of other set ups. I don’t think I will have a ton of weight in/on it anyhow. Maybe throw two kayak racks on it and thinking of welding a hitch on the back so I can throw my mountain bikes on there as well.

    The more I look at the way your rack is set up, the more I like it. Originally I wanted to build a lid for mine with a rack on it for added security but I think it might hinder oversized items like coolers, tree stands, etc. How did you end up solving your spacer problem?

    Thanks and sorry for the delayed reply. As far as the spacers were concerned I returned them and got a pair from a local manufacturer that worked great.

    So the rack comes off quickly and easily so I decided to do another set-up as well. This one is purely based on the ability to take 2 mountain bikes and 2 kayaks. Rest of the gear would be stored underneath. Probably going to make a cargo net the size of the tub to make sure nothing flies out at highway speeds. Here are a few shots of it loaded up when I was test fitting all the racks. IMG_7712.jpgIMG_7705.jpgIMG_7715.jpg

    That is such an awesome setup!

    I had a dream of doing a build like that a few years ago and ended up with with a tractor supply 4x6 utility trailer. Those things are hard to find and pricey.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
