Default Cherokee XJ Rear Side Window Racks

I have been looking and/or trying to find some rear window racks that would be MOLLE compatible to carry some extra gear in the rear...and this morning a good friend called me up and said he had fabricated up a set for me....

Its a part I have been wanting to fab up or find for some time now- well Christmas came early. Couldn't think him enough for the generosity..

I will post more pics after powder coat and final install....

Is that stainless or cold rolled? What's the diameter and spacing between the bars? Do like the fit and look.

I really like these. I'm sure once coated they'll look even better.

Man those are awesome! I've been thinking of something just like this for a while myself. They'll look sick I bet once they get powder coated.

Looks awesome. I've debated doing this, either making or buying. Dirtbound is the only one that makes them afaik.

Most grocery stores have them available, out back near the dumpster. Comes in powdercoated, galvanized or aluminum. I welded them to body then reinstalled plastic trim.

"Grate" Idea I had to...that's similar to what I used also but it was a shelling material.

I like the netting also...
