    THULE Roof Rack with Home-Made Spare Tire Carrier

    I picked up this THULE rack system for less than $100 bucks... feet were $45 off ebay shipped, bars were $45 from a local bike shop! Nice thing is, i can haul 4x8 sheets of materials, bikes, skis, snowboards, kayaks, canoes, boats, luggage boxes, you name it! I think it is a totally cooler rack than a factory rack and is certainly a lot stronger. Jeep really needed something more to make it stand out.

    Using steel square tubing from Sears, and an assortment of bolts, nuts, washers, u-bolts, and spray paint, i fabricated this roof-top spare tire carrier. I attached it to my existing THULE roof rack. No bungee cords here, she's bolted together!
