    I'm building a 97 Heavy Half Z71 into an Overlander/Daily driver and I want to install a roof rack. There are a number of racks on the market I like but non have mounting options for our GTM400 trucks. Who out here has a roof rack on there extended cab trucks and how did you do it?

    I'm sure it will have to be drilled. Even the suburbans/Tahoe's are drilled on the roof. Do you like low profile roof racks or the ones you can see 6 inches high and are curved/ boxy?

    ^ x2

    That would be a fairly easy welding project.

    Get one for a Jeep Wrangler and just fab your own mounts? Its essentially just a basket, just needs to attach to your roof in some way. Drilling into the roof always sucks though.
