Top comming off ?

My top looks like it to want to come off, I dont know if it is because of the setup I have ...

Take a look at those pictures and let me know how or if this can be fixed. Also included a picture of my setup.

Thanks once more.

Pat

Pat,


Is the weight evenly distributed on the rack? If not, i.e. if too much weight is at the rear of the truck, the rack may tend to "sag" at the rear resulting in the front of the rack pulling upwards.

Hi Mike,

I believe it is very rear heavy, I will be moving the tent to the front today, but is the top attached in any way to the windshield.

Thanks

Pat

there are about 6 bolts between the windshield frame and the roof.

That can be fixed. Same thing happened to mine. You have to take a hammer and beat the sh-t out of the Al top and form it back around the windshield. Then repaint the destruction you caused. Thats the only way I fixed it. Mine was still attached tightly on the windshield also.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.
