Yes, they will be added to the website this week. The prototype ended up being a bit too wide so I've got to get pictures of the smaller production size (48 x 72).

Pricing is tentative and will only be final once it's on the website, but...

$300.00 for the basic rack with all mounting hardware
$50.00 for tire carrier that bolts in anywhere within the rack
$10.00 for hi-lift mounting hardware (bolts and spacers, no handle isolator)
$15.00 per pair of welded-in or bolt-on light tabs

The production rack will have 10 universal mounting plates (3 on each side, 2 on front and back) that can be used for mounting anything from shovels, hilift jacks, extra light tabs, anything you want to bolt to it.

I used U-Bolts for several reasons. Using bolt-on tabs will reduce the possibility of shipping damage. It will also make for a smaller package during shipping, which drops transit costs. When researching the product I found that several interested customers were concerned about the chassis tweaking/twisting while offroad and damaging the rain gutters with a rigid rack. The rack itself bolts together in three sections. You can make a 48 x 72 rack or 48 x 48, which would involve moving the mounting bracket. I have also found that several XJ's have rain gutter damage that might prevent the rack from being installed if the brackets were not adjustable.

During testing, no parts moved during heavy side-to-side tension.
