replaced the stock crossbars with some steel pieces...

I ended up getting some 1 x 1 x 1/8" tube 48" long. Drilled holes for some 3/8" bolts after I sleeved the bolt holes with some round tube and capped the ends of the square tube. Then I painted them inside and out. The 3/8" bolts mounted through some 3/16" plate that was cut to fit inside the stock rails. It was all tightened down with some lock washers with loctite on the nuts. The roof rack was bolted to the steel cross bars with some 5/16" u bolts that use lock washers. I can grab the rack and shake the whole truck. Seems pretty solid.

I've had a light bar for the front and rear with lights on it sitting in the garage for over a year, the switch is already in the truck, just haven't bolted them on, I've been slackin.

I've got plans to go bigger, I'll update when I do
