I just got a new 2008 xterra, it was time to get rid of the explorer 2001 with 215,000 hard miles going into manhattan. My problem is the xterra being so tall there are some parking lots that I do not fit into. I had a home made rod rack on the truck that held 4 rods. I had it bolted onto the top on the truck. I am looking for something that would be easy to put on and off when I need it. I was able to put some bungi cords inside the truck for one rod for that before or after work run,but I would rather have something on top. any one have any solutions.

Caston; Good luck with the new rig. I just got a new Off Road Xterra myself. I built a four rod rack that mounts on top of the cargo carier with U bolts, It would be simple to attach it with wing nuts instead of the locking nuts that I used. The whole thing cost me about $40 for materials and about 4 hours shop time.

awesome how do the rods stay put once you put them in and start drivin around? are those rod holder tubes from a tackle shop? or did you make your own tubes out of pvc?
I was looking to make something similar...
