Anybody interested in my custom luggage racks:

The last few inquiries I've had about my luggage racks have all had the same deal breaker:
You lose the stock tool box if you use my rack.

No ifs ands or buts, you can't keep the stock box it won't fit. Please consider this before you ask about one. I am working on a custom toolbox that will go with my rack, I just haven't perfected it yet. I have a working prototype but it isnt as nice looking as I'd like.

So please remember that if you are interested in my luggage racks that you can't keep the stock toolbox with it.

That's always an option, but it isnt for everybody. I just wanted to put this out there and make people aware so they (and I) don't get excited and then disappointed.

M_Angel, is there a way that a guy could mod your rack brackets or the stock tool box to make them work together?
I don't have a stock tool box to try my ideas on...

I think I see why the stock tool box doesn't work... your support brace doesn't allow the toolbox to sit inside the seat rails. I might have a solution for ya.
