Doug - I'll post some pictures when done. As for Matt and patterns, we'll see. He made my roof rack based on a drawing I gave him. When we were done he said don't tell anyone he made it as he wouldn't do it again. He did a great job but it was not an enjoyable effort for him. I'm guessing he will like making the cage much better, but who knows. Mark

This is something on the drawing board at this time. It's really just a matter of you guys telling us some measurements of what you'd like. BTW, there should be extremely very little sag as we are using our net system as the base for that item.
I wouldn't be hanging CO2 tanks off it though.

Let me look at the truck this weekend and figure out what works. I've got a rear bench which would be different from what would be needed for folks with jump seats.

i have not tried this on my raingler nets but if you were to get the straps wet and then tie nots into them when they dry they might shrink a little and be virtually impossible for a potential thief to untie without getting a screwdriver or something in there. might cause enough grief for the guy to go elsewhere.

I just wrap the extra strap past the buckle around the buckle a few times and tuck and pull through itself. It's so simple to undo if you did it yourself, but couldn't tell you how many people I show mine to that are confounded as to how to get it off (when they can't see the buckle) You want to really deter someone, slap some marine grease on the buckle there. lol
The materials we use do not stretch or sag when wet, no cotton or wool to them.

I'm not sure how this would work in the front of a Defender as the rollbars are on the outside unlike a jeep where they appear to be strapped too... so what would they even be connected to on a D? Having something like this in the rear cargo area would make sense but I just don't see how it would work in front.

Sorry, that should be the rear bars. If footmans can be mounted then just about anywhere is possible. Thanks for the catch!

So is that true for the "roof rack" net too that it only covers the cargo area in back and not from the windshield back as it states? I'm interested in these two products so I just want to make sure I understand and know what it does.

Thanks...

You are correct, here it is shown better, from behind the seat backs and runs up across the top to the rear area.
