Thought I'd post a couple rack install pictures.

My standard shot:
Reading back through the thread on the roof rack I never did mention that per my request the builder used welded tube and not sch40 pipe. There was no change in price. It is the same spec as what GOBI uses. Shopping for lights now. I know the PIAA 2100's will fit, but I'll be looking around. I ordered the stock roof light switch to match the one I bought for the bull bar lights. That one is the down arrow switch, this one is the up arrow switch.
Overall very happy with the rack. It was worth the money he charged. There were a couple of things like the deflector brackets I would change. I'm not a fan of the brackets he made. I feel they make it sit to high. I going to try moving them, but if that does not work, I'll be making new brackets. For a finish, he just used a thin coat of Kevlar bed liner. I went back and sanded it and put a heavy, textured coating of Dupi-color bed liner on there. I replaced some of the hardware he included and I think I will be going back and use acorn nuts on the rack mounting brackets for a more finished look. The rubber mounting pads he made were blue. Not that you can see a lot of it, but I would have used black. I still may go back and change them also. These are minor finish issues, but the build is solid.
I've never seen an install or installed a rack like this. It took three men to get it up there and it would have been easier with four. The roof has a slight arch and the rack was stright. I don't know if the GOBI is per arched or not, but the outside ends had to be pushed down to start the nuts. The middle was no issue. Again minor issue, but I'm trying to be real as I know others are looking into this type of home builder clone racks.
