Yea I know what you meen I started this think I will have if done in a matter or a week. Now its almost been 2 months but i can only work on it a hour here and there. But it has saved me about $300ish compared to buying one. So I am pretty happy with it. I just have to clean up all the welds and prep it for a finish. I am think either get it line-xed or powder coated. Or possibly paint it with some black epoxy i have for free.

Tubing - SCH 4O 3/4" The O.D. is like 1.1... something just a lil larger then an inch
Square Tubing - 2x1x16 GA

Im still working on the mounting ideas

Custom cross rails out of the 2x1 are looking like the way to go or just fab up something simular to the Defenfer Mounts. Not sure yet I want to get it as close to the roof line as possible.
