Default B. Lee Roof Racks - Luggage Rack Mounted

A.K.A. the Universal Rack, because you can mount it almost anywhere!







Plain, $199

Add a Hi-Lift mount, $269

These are UPS ship-able, PM me with your zip for a shipping quote.

40" wide, 50" long, 5" deep. Fully welded 1" steel tube frame. Very strong and very light weight. Because it is designed as a universal-fit rack, you supply your choice of mounting hardware. It can be drilled and thru-bolted to your factory roof bars, clamped via u-bolts, j-bolts, secured via turnbuckles or ratchet straps for quick removal, etc. The choice is up to you!

On a Cherokee -->









Small SUV, Ford Escape -->









On a full-size, Chevy Tahoe -->

This particular rack is too narrow for gutter mounts, but I offer gutter-mounted racks in 40", 50", 70", & 76" lengths.

I sent you a PM.

The base-model 50" x 50" gutter mounted rack is $320
The base-model 76" x 50" gutter mounted rack is $360

Hi-Lift mount is $60
*edit* I've taken the spare tire mount option away until I can create a better design

I have a deal on a version of the 76" rack here, $500 with the Hi-Lift mount and heavy duty floor upgrade.

I'll PM you the complete price list.

Thanks for the kind words Sean. I get down to CFL fairly often, I could always deliver a rack to you personally!

It looks small in the pics, but doesn't look bad in person on the Tahoe! It works great too, frees up some interior space for those family road trips!

The biggest rack I build is the Monster Rack at 76" long & 50" wide. I cannot figure out how to copy the link here for you (I'm on my wife's phone), but I bumped the thread for you. The Monster Rack is $500 + freight. PM me your zip code for a freight quote.

Boy, it's been nice and cool in the mornings this week, feels like fall is right around the corner! Time to hit the trails, are you properly equipped?

The best way to mount is probably with u-bolts, unless you don't mind drilling your factory crossbars and the rack and then thru-bolting it. U-bolts will provide a non-permanent mount, and be plenty strong enough.

As for capacity, the rack is capable of carrying more weight than the factory bars can, or you would want to safely carry up top. The rack is not teh weak link in the system as far as capacity goes!

Do you offer a 50" x 50" rack with gutter mounting? I saw somewhere that you do but I don't see a price for it.
