You have to use / slashes rather than \ slashes in the URL address bar.

Nice rack--very nice rack!! Like I always say, if you can't find what you want, you've got to build it yourself!


I have a custom steel rack on my 89 Nissan Hardbody

: the factory roof rack on my Pathfinder had a very short span so I took off
: the factory bars and utilized the stock mounting hardware .
: made up a pair of contoured ash blocks to fit the roof at its forwardmost
: position and made two side rails from ash with pockets on the underside to
: accept the stock mounting clamps , made two crossrails from 3/4" x 2
: 3/4" ash
: and mounted them to the side rails ..the sliding tilting thingy soon followed
: it helps out for some people who are short for there weight.
