Try this one: WELCOME to Top Pop Rails Website !

Mounts on the front of the AS over the tanks. A bit expensive - about $450.00 and you have to remove the top of the carrier (easy to do) to be able to open the window. But, all in all, the best solution I found. Have known folks who have had serious issues with mounting at the rear bumper.

Anything mounted on the rear, will have a negative effect on the structure.

Remember, the shell holds the frame up. Any additional weight will encourage the frame to pull away from the shell.

If the frame held the shell up, then that would be an entirely different story.

Yes, yes, I am well aware that some do it anyway.

They will learn, the hard way, when they get the bill to put the rear end back into it's original condition.

Then there is the "moment arm."

Non-believers, still cannot change the laws of Physics, but they keep on trying, in spite of themselves.
