I am also working on a cargo rack as we speak. I went ahead and bought the brackets from Off-Road Unlimited -mainly because I can build the rack to resemble something on a production line, but I didnt want my bracketry to look homebrew. Thats just my OCD kicking in I guess. The Defender racks they sell (like the ones used on the ultimate adventure commanders) are only 16 gauge and I will use 14 so I should have a strong setup. Not to mention they are 430ish plush shipping vs me building one for -+100.00 or so. Either way, I just needed something to toss the canoe on top of and occasionally some random camping gear, I will have to get pics up when I get done.
