I had been shopping for a while for a roof rack and just couldn't part with the $500+ to get one that I wanted. I wanted one that sat down closer to the roof so it didn't add to the front profile of the vehicle when not loaded. I also wanted one that would be a good place to hold my shovel and jack.

I use square tubing from the hardware store and painted black. I attached it underneath the stock rack with u bolts. I then used to pieces of angle iron as cross braces. Lastly two pices of shelving from Lowes's in a color similar to the truck make the basket. It blends in really well with the truck, you don't really even notice its there.

The sides of the tubing sticks out for room mounting the jack and shovel.

All in all I think I spent around $70 for everything and got it built in an afternoon.
