    Attaching Scale Accessories on Your TRX-4

    If one was to pick up a set of scale accessories for the TRX-4's top rack, like this one, what is the best and what is best used to secure them in place for the trail?



    Thanks

    If you get a winch a land anchor would be a must for me. It would be scale and functional.

    In looking at the roof rack, it appears bungies with hooks would work well cause there are bars to attach to!

    Scale bungees look cool, but when your truck rolls over three or four times you'll have a scale search party looking for all of the stuff that was on your rig.

    For larger items I punch a hole in the body and the item and use a self-tapping screw to hold it in place. For smaller stuff, Shoe-Goo, it holds well and can be removed. But, Shoe-Goo is fairly caustic and will eat through softer plastics, Styrofoam, and paints, in those cases I use silicone sealant to hold stuff on.

    For softer stuff like bedroll and such, I just use a 4" zip ties.

    I've heard it call a mountain side yard sale.

    I dig having scale bits all over my scalers, but yea, losing parts going down the trail sucks.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!
