    Just finished this rack up. i thought i'd let you all critique it. it's made to unbolt from the windshield and unbolt from the rear light covers. i'm not sure of the exact weight but it isn't much over 100 lbs i'd say. i can easily lift it myself. made out of 3/4" emt conduit and rectanglular tubing for the supports.

    let me know what you think

    Looks good, but honestly, I'd worry that a whack from a branch offroad could tweak the windshield frame enough to crack the glass. Don't ask me how I know this....

    I've been wanting to something very similar, except I was going to take the front bars down to my sliders.
    I like it.
