    I just got the next version side rails laser cut and they look really good. Also the next version of the mounting brackets cut, but I still have to do the bending on them. I am hoping to have racks ready to order before the end of the month. That way I can get PO's in for side rails, extrusions, fronts, brackets, fasteners, etc. My wife and I are going on a trip to SF last week of Feb, so hoping I come home to fresh parts to powder coat and put together/package for shipping.

    The kit will be everything you need to put a roof rack on your truck using the factory mounting holes.

    Are there any pictures of how you'll integrate a light bar?

    The light bar fits down into a cutout area in the wind deflector. The base of the cutout is the 1x 2 extrusion. You just use 4 t-nuts/bolts (included when you order the light bar style) to bolt the brackets that come with the light bar.

    Very close to ready on both the 100 and the 60 racks. I need to adjust the wind deflector profile on both, and just a couple of other tweaks. The 100 roof brackets have been tough as well as making it look right with the out-of-square roof. The little "wings" on the front of the 100 rack do the trick.

    Another really great thing is that the cross bars are a perfect fit for Yakima accessories that have their screw clamps. There is a rubber insert that has to come out, then they are spot on and really solid. Here are some pics of their kayak rack for an example.

    $850 includes powder coating (black texture or anodized silver color). The cross bars are anodized, either black or clear (silver).

    80 series racks are available . 100 series is still moving forward. I know, a snails pace, but it is moving. I have had side rails ordered for a long time for the 100, the 60, and more 80 series. Still waiting but hope to see them this week.

    Ordering info, shipping info, pricing can be found on my website
    www.bowfincruisers.com

    Thanks!
