Roof rack gutter mount

I'm wondering if any one has a source for the gutter mounts that attach to a standard roof gutter. I have searched in the past but don't feel like I have found the right thing yet.

I'm looking for something that I can weld or otherwise build off of to attach a full size 110 roof rack to my truck.

The brownchurch and G4 racks have up to 14 of these feet.

Thanks for any help

Jeff

Evening Jeff

Have you seen the new explorer series that Saftey Device is offering.
It has the same gutter mount as the G4 rack but the feet are not welded to the basket.

Mike (ECR) might be able to get the feet/cross bars for you to use the NAS basket.

Ok. Thanks guys

Ron- I don't see myself getting up to PA any time soon, but thanks I will keep that in mind. If you find a low mile defender 200tdi in the meantime, I could probably make the trip

mpodgorski- That explorer rack is more like what I am looking for, but I want to make it instead of buy. The foot design is pretty cool the way both feet across from each other create a platform that the basket sits on.

I'm still hoping I can find just the feet that attach to the gutters and I will build the rest.

Hey thanks! Those first ones look pretty good.

Hey Wolf, if it's not proprietary or anything, what are the dimensions of the tubing you use on your racks? OD and wall thickness

Sweet thanks.

I was thinking that 1.5 would be a good choice. 1" looks really small on some of the racks out there.

I might give this a try soon. My girlfriend gave me a ladder for Xmas but I don't have anything on the roof to climb up to.
