We'll I spent yesterday building a custom roof rack for my 94 suburban. It's pretty big but it needs to hold my Spair tire, tools, shovels and a jack. We are also gonna be putting in on board air with a retractable air line and an on board welder still thinking about a good power inverter and cord so we can run flood lights but not to sure yet. I'll post some pics of the rack in a little bit..

hey sorry guys for the lack of pics but I use my cell phone to take the pics and haven't figured out how to post them on hear yet from my cell phone :( .... The welder I use is a cheep 110 one how ever it works well for every thing I do in my shop and I have full access to bigger ones thank god if ever needed :) along with plasma cutters, water jets, and CNC machines... the roof rack didn't take to long just a few hours to build. I think the reason my welder works so well is that I prep the steel really well before welding. the roof rack I made is out of 1" square tubing I am just looking for steel mesh for the bottom at a good price.

hmmmmm ..... ive been wanting to get my own welder and fab up my own parts. how much is a cheap 110 welder ? does brand matter ? when you prep the steel you mean sanding it down for a clean bare metal finish ? before welding ?

no, in abbotsford. I get parts from Kelowna for my Suzuki. Altered Ego Motorsports. I was going to get my roof rack, and under armour from them but am probably better off trying to do it myself
