Roof racks and upgrades
« on: September 03, 2019, 09:32:06 PM »
Just wondering if it's possible to fit roof racks/baskets to my 91 sierra soft top. Also looking for advice for under body protection etc and where we can get some. Any help appreciated

Hi mate
For under body protection (unless you like playing with welders and grinders) talk to Darren (forum name Tanshi). He supplies fuel tank and transfer guards through his ADD engineering persona.

For racks/baskets... it can be done, similar to the Jeep ones. But again requires some welding and grinding. Because the Soft top b pillar and windscreen have very little strength, a support down to the tub or rear bar at the back and the cowl just in front of the windscreen are recommended.

The Highlander - 1987 lwb canopy

Here's one I built a million years ago.

Soft top was still useable, but a bit of a pain if you were taking it off on a regular basis.

Nice work, thanks for the pics, I've got a fibreglass canopy as apposed to the soft top but could probably work around it.
