Thanks, so many of those light bars don't give the dimension you actually need for install.
I was thinking I might have to make a mounting plate out of 2" aluminum flat stock and punch some holes and paint.
I understand.

considering the Maximus-3 Sport rack, but can't find photos with the hardtop off to see how it flows with the lines of the Gladiator. Not purchasing that expensive of a sport rack without photos. somebody help me out!

It will be awhile before I remove mine but I will post when I do. Have you reached out to Maximus-3 to see if they had any photos?

how did you modify the tonneau cover to work with the rack?
I had to cut all 4 corners at an angle on the flat wide part that sits on the bed shoulder. Then I also cut the fin that goes down the inside of bed shoulder enough to miss the brackets so it would allow the cover opening to get wide enough. I only did this on the front brackets, not the rear. The rear of the bed cover rails wanted to angle down toward the center of the bed causing the opening to be too tight to close the cover so I put rubber spacers under the very end of them on top of the inner bed shoulder column just inside the tailgate. As I mentioned, it is less water resistant than before. You could put some weather stripping under the rails since the rubber lip from the factory topper is now raised up the thickness of the steel brackets.

I also had to modify the holes on the bracket tab as shown in the picture because the rails are now higher and furthur back enough that the screw holes wouldn't line up.

Looks Killer! Excellent build. The roll bars with tonneau cover is awesome. I really appreciate your close-up photos on how you cut it to make it work with the rack. I ordered the Bac X4s hard rolling tonneau cover and I am looking to do something similar. The Maximus-3 sports rack is the best-looking one I have found. I have been going back and forth on the Maximus-3 and modifying the cover or the Black Horse sports bar that will work with no modification. You might have just shown me the better path.

Thanks. It's been a fun build so far. I will have to check out the hard rolling cover you mentioned. Wonder how much modification it will take.

That’s a beast! I love it! How much nose dip did you get adding the bumper and winch?

Thanks. Actually hadn't checked . I will have to. The steel skid system is heavy too.
