    Default My rack for my Jimny

    I went throuhg a couple of designs and building options before the final product. My brother made this one for me and I used it on our recent trip to Botswana, the system worked extremely well for me.
    The total weight of the rack is 25kg, and the weight of the backseats that were taken out 13kg. So a net increase in weight of 12kg's
    The following went along
    Food for 2.5weeks
    Bedding for winter
    2 Strechers
    2 chairs
    1 table
    1 tent
    2 Jerry cans
    1 cast iron pot
    1 cast iron wok
    Butane gas stove
    Clothes
    Drinks

    Very Cool.
    With a bit of thought one could build an extension in order to use it as a double bed when doing an extended camp (more than one night)

    Looks very good .

    Definatly next on my to build list after Im done with my Jimny's custom lift kit .

    Will probably go for Aluminium , lighter and no need to rustproof .

    Will also free up space for 2 10" Subs and a leka mono block amp
