sxs rack (on top of pickup)

I have two sxs's, so I built this rack to haul one on top of the pickup. Also great for an out of town trip if its just me (gets around Cali's 55 mph speed limit when towing). I bolted two 2x2"x.120" tubes in the bed, that each have two kickers going down to the bed. The 2x2's also stab into the stock ladder rack pockets, so the weight is shared by the kickers and the bed. Plus, by tying into the ladder rack pockets, a lot less steel is needed in the bed. I then used 1x3x.065" tubing and 1 1/4 .120 wall angle and built two separate racks (left and right). Each weights a little over a hundred pounds, so I can lift them up onto the bed by myself. Four bolts hold each one on, and it takes about 5-10 minutes to put them on or take them off. On the 1x3" I asked for .083 wall, but they gave me .065". But the .065" is working out fine, and keeps the weight down. It fits my wife's rzr4, my Mav, and it'll fit a sxs up to 76" wide so it should be future proofed! I also used some 1 3/4 .095" round tubing where all the tires rest.

Looks good. I'm assuming you got air ride suspension.

Bump for a fella looking for one of these. Bolts right into a short bed SD. $1800 if anyone wants it.

Nice--how does the RZR handle the ride? Any problems with the wind stress on the roof?

Re: sxs rack (on top of pickup)

Great Fab work, wish that I had the skills..
You have every right to be proud of that setup
I would have been more than happy to have one like yours as it's A-one and much better than my feeble attempts to build one myself.
Mine was custom built (not by me) and is made out of aluminum. It is easily removed by two "young" men.

Re: sxs rack (on top of pickup)

I've only had the RZR 4 with the factory plastic roof up there once and it did fine. If you're worried about the roof then after you tie the whole thing down, I would just throw a strap over the roof in the cage and snug it down a little bit just on the front of the roof and that should alleviate any worries. And that custom aluminum one is a very nice, unique way to do it. I never would have thought of making one like that!
