Anyone have a place they recommend I looked through the older threads on this and many seem to have stopped making them. Looking to do the jmoose rack myself and need to source the mounts to get started.

Thanks!

search for a thread from Workingclass about his roof rack. He makes some burly as FAWK gutter clamps. Worth every penny if you ask me!

I second Diamondrax. His mounts are beefy and hes a good guy to deal with.

I think I have 4 of these confer mounts in my garage. I am on vacation now and won't be home till Sept. 21. You can have them for the cost of the ride if you can use them. You will have to make the clamping part but not hard to do. I will attach a pic of what they look like.

The best I've seen are custom made by a MUD member: "workingclass". Check out the home made roof rack discussion in the expedition rig thread. Price is very reasonable. Here are some pics of his mounts.

those are nice, but it seems like the small grabbing lip wouldn't spread the tension very well. fine if you have an aerodynamic rack that won't pull up and you don't get into stuff wheeling (like trees :doh:), but i'd rather have a large area of the gutter holding stuff on.

here are the gamviti's i've got. i went a different route for the last thing i had to mount (still have more gamviti's on my roof rack and my lightbars tho)
they are the 45 degree brackets for 40/80 series rigs (can be used on others, just not as fit for them, so 60 series or 80s w/o fact roof rack will stick up higher). they are powdercoated and with the exception of dust in good condition. go $175+ shipping new for 6. i'll sell my 6 for $125/shipped
