As the trip is only weeks away, I have sourced the required parts I shall be carrying from rockauto. Amazing the cost difference shipped from US than locally sourced. Close to 40% savings.
I am seriously considering finding someone who can fabricate some bracket or uneek like bracket for my front runner roof rack so it extends out to the pinchweld. I will be carrying camping gear on the roof.
I might be looking for a Wilco tyre carrier($999) or a Mirack($399), or go without the additional spare....
As you can see in the photo attached, the uneek base bracket looks like it may help the front runners with downward pressure. Neither uneek or front runners would benefit for upward pressure. I know if I can get hold of this uneek bracket, it may just do the trick, as the front runner backbone rail can be mounted outwards so it wont align to the roof lugnuts, also meaning the roof rack would sit closer to the roof.
Anyone know a Perth fabricator who could do this sort of thing?
