is this Con Ferr roof rack too wide?

hey,

my neighbor sold me this roof rack for pretty cheap,with four procomp 130( i think) lights,high lift jack,and mount. I put it on top of my 4runner. Legnth wise i like it. Width wise, it looks a little too big.What are your opinions? should I sell it and grab another rack?





thanks

pj

I say Leave it. It looks odd with 2 lights. More lights or smaller lights would look good.

run it! use the extra width in the rear to hand clothes on to dry after a day of kayaking, or camping!

DO you have a welder? you could just cut it and take a couple inches out of it. But i really dont think it looks that bad.

I do have access to a welder.I was accually thinking of bobbing it width wise a couple inches.

Some guy has a custom made rack thats a little smaller than this rack. Should I do it or keep this Con Ferr? is it a good rack company?

thanks
