Are you planning to run a RTT? If so you could mount the tent off center. Or switch out the outpost towers for the overhaul ones. Excited to see the rest of the build!One of the reasons I got a Yakima Outpost rack was to hand a few Rotopax gas containers off of the left side side-bar. The two photos below reveal what happened when I test-fit the 4.5 Gal. Rotopax on the sidebar of my rack.
Yes, I do intend to mount a RTT next week for a test-fit. That's not a bad idea @Ranger4play. I kind of like the look of the gas mount on the roof, though. I will give it a try, though and let you know how it fit.Are you planning to run a RTT? If so you could mount the tent off center. Or switch out the outpost towers for the overhaul ones.

In this post, this looks like its before your Fox leveling kit, correct?The intrusion beam issue having been dealt with, it was time to haul the wheels and tires to my favorite local tire shop (WTW in Miami Lakes) and mount these bad boys! A short trip to Home Depot to kill some time, then Chick-fil-a for some well earned lunch and it was back to WTW. Note the roof rack I installed. More about that later. I think the tires and bronze wheels look great. I love the fact that with the FUEL wheels, those wider BFGs don't stick out more than an inch from the fender wells. On those narrow Colorado shelf trails, I'll need all the passing clearance I can get!
Note that in the first picture after the array of truck and tire shots is a close-up of the amount of clearance between the front of the driver's tire and that plastic air-dam thingy. I bring that up because when I reversed at full lock, the bigger BFGs rubbed on the bottom of the air dam, making a rather horrendous sound. Needless to say, I trimmed them sufficiently to eliminate that cacophony. A few pics of the clearance between the tires and the new BDS beams are also included.
As promised:I'll add pictures of the fabricated roof mount if anyone wished to see it.
Very interested to see pics of the roof mounts you created. Thanks
