Limb riser mount tabs for new style Hannibal
I previously attached my limb risers to clamps on the "A" piller roll cage hoop. When I installed the Hannibal Rack on my truck I designed a new way to hook my limb risers to the truck. The hannibal has a massive extruded aluminum outter frame. It has a channel in the top of the frame that allows you to drop in a small bolt (inverted) then attach items to the bolts. This is how the rack's side rails atttach to the main frame. Rather than simply drilling a hole through the front of the extrusion and installing an eye bolt I designed and made some simple tabs out of stainless plate, put a slight downward bend (toward the front bumper) and bolted them in. I also had to rebuild my limb risers with 5" of addtional cable length to accomodate the higher height of the rack. Now the younger tree limbs we regularly encounter on some of the tight narrow tracks in the Sierras will slide off of the top of my rack and not put dings in my roof!
