    So I pick up a set of those 15153958 bump stops mentioned in a separate thread.

    They popped right in and are in fact 1/2" taller then stock.

    One thing I noticed right away is that the rubber is softer (I believe the term is durometer) yet it has less of a "spring" design then our OEM units

    I took it for a drive around the block and noticed that the truck seemed to feel more stable in the turns and it feels like there is less nose dive when braking.

    I will update this once I get more miles done but so far I think this might be a worth while option for some.

    Ps- I have a Rancho lift just for future reference

    Since my LED turn signals looked too blingy after I installed the dark STARR HID's I picked up some vinyl tint and darkened them a smidge.

    I am very happy with the result! It only took about 15 min total

    Put the rear diff cover back on today, getting prepped to head to Moab


    The started building the Trans skid that I have put off for 4.5 years!

    Added come 2x1" c channel (22" long for anyone wanting to make this in the future)
    Then welded it to the Rancho aft bars. This week I will pick up a 1/4" thick plate of steel and weld it onto the bars to finish it off.. progress pics of that project:

    Picked up the steel plate I need to finish off the trans skid, I will work on it in the evenings when there is still daylight and get it completed by the weekend hopefully.

    This evening I mounted a case to my roof rack. It's Plano's version of the Pelican gun case.



    But the yellow handles stood out like a sore thumb so I took care of that first:

    Now that the handles were taken car of it was time to line things up, the case, drill some holes and finish things up!

    The mounting hardware I used:
    1/4" 20 carriage bolt (5)
    Rubber washer (5)
    1/4" Fender washers (5)
    1/4" 20 nylock nut (5)

    This is why I chose to make my roof rack with aluminum extrusions:


    The carriage bolt slides into the t slot and allows you to cleanly mount anything along the length of the track.

    Once all the holes were drilled and bolts inserted into the cross bars it was as simple as mounting in order:

    The final look:

    One thing that attracts me to this setup is the locks that are built into the latches

    Nice job! Watch kind of stuff will you be putting in there? Reason I ask is because I need some ideas of what stuff I should put in the pelican case that I have on the rear of my gobi. Recovery gear?

    I plan of carrying recovery gear & some of the lighter tools and spares up there... I will be loading it up tomorrow so I will try and grab a pick before it too dark out.

    I have that exact same case except it has the pluck foam and a scout rifle stuck in it. It's a good solid case, I've never tested it against water leakage but still a heckuva lot cheaper than a Pellican.

    The thing I like about your racks is that they are open and you can still wash the roof. Is the bed rack the same length as the roof? I've been pondering ordering a shorty Gobi for an H3 and fab up some mounts for the tracks on the roll cover.

    The total length of the bed rack is 62" (which I believe is 2.6" longer then the interior length of the box)
    The total length of the roof rack is 67" (which needed the extra few inches to get the 50" LED bar far enough ahead)

    I might do a production run of the racks, let me know if you are interested
