And Horsey, I may have plagiarized some of your pics as well...
Nice Pics. This is an interesting set of rear basket mounts instead of the SD rear ladders:

We admired that truck pretty heavily...the pics don't do it justice. Those brackets were a custom fab job it looked like, and attached in the rain gutters very clean. Amazing rig - I'd never have the heart to take that on the trails it was so clean.

Wonder why he went with those. Do the SD ladders get in the way of the Mantec tire carrier?

It seems to be for removing it faster.

Brian / Pedro;

Thank you for the positive comments on my truck. I did in fact faricate those. Made from stainless steel, tapped the holes and mount in the gutter. I based it off some of the other guttered mounted rack systems. Does make it easier to remove but that was never a consideration. Mostly because I could not bring myself to drill the holes for the ladder in the rear of the truck.

Thanks!

Troy

Ah, that's what I suspected but, I see you have a Mantec tire carrier drilled into the body so I told myself I was wrong.

Troy's truck is like all his stuff- the more you look the more impressed I get. Attention to detail is not a problem for him.

Hey Troy, is it possible I saw this 90 in Radford VA about a month ago? It was the first time I saw a 90 here. And we will have to meet up sometime and go off roading! You aren't to far away from where I live!

Correct, the Mantec Carrier requires that the rivets be drilled out at the capping and slightly larger holes drilled for the bolts.

Maxim - Up that way all the time. My shop is is Salem. I was up that way this weekend with a truck load of kids at Wolfe Ridge playing paintball. If you get down towards Roanoke give me call. 798.8653.

There is a white D90 ST for sale in Dublin. I ran up there a month or so ago to check it out.
