I prefer the stock/natural look, but I understand with the age of some of these legendary rides that alot of guys like the firmer feel of an equipment upgrade. You never get your money back on such upgrades though...I guess you just have to enjoy it while you can!

The firmer feel versus the squishiness of a high mileage rack is definitely better when you consider the load you will want to put on it...

just my 2c

Rare INTI rack (no longer available in USA). Something about a "foreign relations" issue with Venezuela, I suppose.

Yea, I'm thinking the load will be variable, but the rack will have to be stable enough to withstand a lot of two track vibration. I'm not worried about a high rack as I wheel in low vegetation areas, but the terrain is usually rock hard and wash board type terrain.

Is that "just my 2c" a metric measurement?

I think what he trying to say is that he is feeling stocky, naturally aged but still legendary; and has to try and enjoy a firmer ride while he can? With money being no object...Squishy?..not too sure on that one.

That truck looks exactly like the one for sale in Nashville I just posted in the RRC value thread in the flea market.

Somebody should knock that off for Defenders as I think these are some of the best looking roof racks out there.

Curious what would be the largest tire size compatible with the rear interior looking at Martin's set up. I don't have the tire cover but I do have the panels. I just put MT/R's 265/75/16 on the classic and it really nice.

My truck has the same size (265/75/16) in the all-terrain, interior tire is stock size.

Guess I'll be slapping the rubber on the rack then because I'm taking the rear bumper back to stock. I have a full size spare on it now.

I'm finally reading this thread.
Epic content for sure. See how long you can keep the double entendres rolling without getting tossed in The Pit!

I've been looking at D2 racks all week and I can't make up my mind. I'm sure if I could just lay my hands on a couple it would be easier but alas...
So my dilemma is I am going to need a stout rack for a D2 that I can mount an RTT on. So no droop as typical, so this is going out to you guys with a D2...advice and or purchase suggestions.

Safety Devices and Hannibal are the only racks that look good on a DII, in my opinion. I've owned both on a DII. The Hannibal is definitely a nicer and more functional rack, but the SD looks better. I think I've seen a RTT on an SD rack before. You could always go the GTT route.

The flatdog front runner knockoff would probably work the best, if not just a front runner.
