Default Flare Side Topper roof rack system?

So, I have a topper on my 2002 Flare Side edge. I have been trying to track down a set of roof racks for it. Now, I lost my work shop. So now, I need so form of a system that I can just drill and bolt on. I do not have the ability to cut anything now. I have been having quite some trouble. Could anyone help me out?

I also am in this boat with you. I can't find a roof rack for it. I'm thinkin of making a set. I could make 2 and sell one to you. I'll make some designs and post it for you

Grab an explorer roof rack and bolt her on.

Or is your topper too narrow?

topper is to narrow. Only about 3 feet wide on top. We'd have to cut down the rack to make it fit

I've been pondering about this a bit too - I'm wondering if a roof rack off a subaru wagon would fit.

This is exactly what I plan on doing. Heck I already have the rack just need to stop being lazy. It is not like it is made from kryptonite, a simple $5 hacksaw will do the job.

See, I had that idea originally. I don't have a hacksaw anymore. I'm just looking for some bolt on mounts to run crossbars or something. Anyway I can mount a roof basket really.

Yakima racks. They are adjustable where the towers go.

All Im looking for is a 45" width bar, that all I have to do is drill and mount. I've found one that is 50" wide. Which I can't cut down sadly. Any leads?

I mounted Thule racks on my flareside topper. You can buy the base tracks in several different lengths or cut down to size you need. Same with the cross bars.

I hate to be such a pain, Is there anyway I could get a link to the item? I've been trying to track something down for quite some time.

You can buy a hacksaw for as cheap as $5.
