hey guys, wanted to get some more cargo space for my tj.
I was in a sheet metal class, and finished all of the required projects, so I decided to make a rack.
the dimensions are 55"x26" from end to end. it sits 9" high, and the bucket is 5" deep.
made from 3/4" square tubing, 1/2" square tubing 1 1/4 angle iron, and 1x1/8 flat bar. i wanted to put some expanded metal in the bottom, but didnt want to spend the money.
It is mounted inside the jeep with 3/8" bolts. and sits on top of my bestop trunk.
got everything welded, and just primed and painted a few days ago. total cost for the materials was $45.
It was my first time welding, I used a mig, I want to buy one but they are soo expensive.
anyway here is the rack.
