175 lb. tie-wraps on each side roll bar and the center roll bar. I made a metal "tang" or tonge that inserts into the footman loop on the windshield frame and it attaches to the PVC rack with screws. I could have used ties to the footman loop, but I wanted the rack to stay above the footman loop, and with ties I figure it would work it's way down under the loop and hang below the loop.

Here are the pics with the cobra 29 nightwatch and weather. The second pic is how much the radio sticks out and the last one is with the door closed.

If you want something a bit more, check out Dan Dillner's overhead consoles. He's doing one for me now to hold all of my light wiring, CB, winch controls, etc. He can custom build them to any spec you'd want.

Can you please post pics of the install? I really like the idea of being able to mount radios / switches / gauges over head.
