Is that in the north? I was just through the Flaming Gorge area. Beautiful country.

Beautiful country. Just curious, what kind of highway mileage did you get towing the trailer?

usually I fill up around 175 miles as my gauge is not 100% accurate but pulling the trailer i would get to 200 210 miles and stop to put some fuel in since I never get that kind of milage around town - so my guess is somewhere around 16-17 mpg with the trailer

the best part was the ride was actually alot smoother with some weight on the car - I have OME shocks and usually feel a little rough around town but felt great on the trip

Very nice! And pretty nice gas mileage - I was getting 10.5-12.8 mpg pulling my trailer on my road trip, and usually only about 150 miles to a tank (best was 175) depending on the speed I was driving.

Great pics! I see you have a soft top, with a roof rack... Was that a custom job? I've had a hard time finding a rack that will work with my soft-top D90....I have a snorkel on the front that obstructs some of the standard racks

I think we told you this the last time you asked this (could be thinking of someone else) but we have NAS STs which have the A bar portion of the roll cage, which is what the front portion of the roof rack secures/rests to/on.

You just need to get inventive or buy the A portion of the cage which Jay linked to. Expedition Racks (I think that's their name) out of CA sells a similar rack to the stock one Jay had on his truck.

There are lots of ways to connect a rack to the windshield - especially if you don't mind drilling some holes. Talk to Jeff from lelofab (jefhuf here).
