Powderburn....on a piece of heavy equipment...they're called ROPS...might as well keep up the rugged theme....and they would be handy to haul home the days hunt, if you can throw it on the top!!! :lol: :lol:

Hell, get the stove project ironed out, the camo netting on it and you won't have to leave the TD. The Powderburn Sniper Nest.

Don't forget to leave room for the 50-cal. Need that 270° FOV.

P/B,

Seriously, do you think you need true roll bars (ROPS) or just some Equipment (tie down) racks. Thinking along the lines of a ROPS, your gonna be adding a lot of weight... reading this thread has convinced me that I'm gonna put some sort of "luggage rack" on mine. (when I have more than a pile of steel...) For the obvious multiple purpose reasons... I'm also thinking an old "pioneer" tool rack would be cool also... just a couple of thoughts...

I think the lugage rack is a good idea for a lot of the reasons given, it might even help storing it at home, you can throw a tarp over it and not worry about trapping water against the roof. Standing water is the worst.

It also looks good on your rugged tear.

Critter,


I was askin' the idea, you know mental picture, not that brand/price... trying to get the pic in my head of what you were talking about....

Was I close?? I know that since we can we build our own, we will, or we'd all be pulling a pop-up....
