Had a look at a tyre carrier today fabricated locally. This guy is also willing to work on the roof rack bracket if time allows. Since he is a uni student, time maybe limited.

This is the tyre carrier I was looking at, do you think it will affect the departure angle? It sits about 3in below the tow hitch with a diagonal cut - this design is as such so it act as a stopper when opened.

His previous version does not suffer this problem and is a straighter cut though he has none avail.

Previous version on the LandCruiser attached.

not worth paying a fabricator cos i would suggest it would be alot more expensive than getting the uneek ones . i looked into it and i'll wait to see if chief release the support seperately or just buy the uneek one and get a fab to make up arms for the pioneer
Btw, Uneek no longer supplies the brackets only. They want you to buy their racks.

In regards to? I would say the drawers weigh around 15kg, guessing.

The gas struts are capable and 600n is among the higher strength, but it is all about positioning and strength of the wooden frame that matters.

Yep, quite sure there abouts. Galvernised, yet feel solid. I will weigh it if I take it out again, easy to do since I use nutserts to the floor board.

who would want to buy a shit rack . These boutique manufacturers are loosing out on sales but not allowing rails to be bought seperately . Obviously no thought went into the actual roof rack . Just make the inside of the rack a mesh . No thought or R&D needed .
