So I bought materials and a 3/4" die for my bender for this almost two years ago. With an upcoming trip to the San Rafael Swell in a few weeks I thought I should knock this out. The idea was to hold two MWC's (ignore the fuel can in the photo, it won't be going inside the vehicle) and my cooler so I could have access to them without digging them out of the pile of gear for a family of 5. It also gived me 9" of lower storage for tents and sleeping bags. We use our 3rd row seats around town when hauling the nieces so I needed this to be wife removable. I attached the rack to the 3rd row seat mounts using some 5/8" split collars. The font two have a step cut into them so they locat into the reciever part of the seat mount. The rear two tighten with an allen wrench for now, but I'll order or make some a knob for them. I still need to weld on the tie downs for the cooler and for the straps that will go over the water cans. I am also going to cut some ABS sheet to go in between the bars. Then paint it all up.
