Custom Roof Rack Design

So I’ve been working on some designs for a new roof rack style. I really didn’t like how everything sat so high when mounted to the stock rack. So this is version one of the design.

I was thinking 1.5″ or 1.75″ OD aluminum tubing (maybe 6061?) for the main rails and removable basket frame. The main rails would be mounted to plates on top and under the roof. This will also replace the current rails and spoiler.

Anyone wanna throw out some ideas or changes?
