For those that have read The Great Adventures Awaiting Your Overland in the Great Outdoors , the outdoors can be lots of fun! This contest is for the best picture showing just how much fun you had!

The prize is none other than an arch2b hand made roof rack! The very one seen by many in How-To: Overland Roof Rack !

Pictures submitted by me are for fun and example only!

arch2b,
I'm curious. What if I wanted to buy one of your hand made roof racks? I've just gotten into this new Overland hobby and have a red Pajero, but no digital camera to post entries. Are you willing to entertain the idea about selling any of your creations? I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask. Please let me know when you get a chance. Thanks.

if you send me the dimensions of your roof and where you want the holes i can make you one, i would guess (have to see how long it takes me and how much the materials are for a bunch) that they would cost like 15 or so dollars

Kevin,

That isn't "dirty" - I can still see the paint!
Put it behind your T-Maxx and give it a mud blast!

heh, dont tempt me.
I've got more in store, this is just a taste because I saw nobody else had submitted ANYTHING so far (except arch2b, but his don't count)

I got it that dirty with about 3 minutes of running, while holding a flashlight, right after my sprinklers went off running at the edge of my grass in the moist dirt

haven't even hit the creek yet....
