I wanted to post this as it was inspired by @WhatExit? build of this Gladiator Rack. He has been a wealth of Knowledge and you should read his post

https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/...dea-of-a-perfect-for-me-gladiator-rack.27705/

Although I have not tested with a Tonneau cover yet I will shortly I have a couple more things to add for customization but I wanted to add a shopping list for the everyday joe that wants something on a budget. And of course, you get to add your little piece of you made it yourself.

Here is the shopping list. You don't need all of this if you have a Trail Rail system already But I figured for under $350 I have a 4 post Rack and a rail system.


Now as I have some side pieces fabricated still working out that design. I wanna do it homemade so. If anybody has some insight on inexpensive say 1/8" slotted steel let me know. It can be bare.

In my opinion I don't think it will but you might want to check out Scots site I think he has some ideas on weight there. But I have seen many with 4 towers in a RTT, some have gone to 6 towers.

Could you tell me how tall these towers are? Or how much clearance you have from the bed?
Thanks!

According to Scot,

"200 lbs (4 towers) is the dynamic or weight in moment rating. Parked in camp, will have no problem supporting the tent with occupants.

We normally go a 4 towers / 2 crossbars for 56" wide RTTs and 6 towers / 3 crossbars for 72" wide."
