I am posting this to see if there is any interest from others in putting together a group purchase of a lid for your M416. The guy that is building one is located in Ft Worth, Tx so I am trying to find folks who could come get it as shipping is always the problem.
I do not have all of the details yet but I am going to see it this week and get more info and maybe more pictures. He is building this one for a customer who is having an ARB tent mounted directly to the top. As soon as that happens I will get additional pictures.
There have been numerous threads about producing these but I have never found anyone who is willing to do it on anything other than a one off. This guy is willing but backlogged for several months on other projects so we have time to put together a group deal if anyone else is interested. Looks like there is at least one maybe two others already interested in DFW area.
No firm cost yet and I am sure the more we get the better the price but better figure at least a grand and probably a little more. I know this is not for everyone but for those of us that are mechanically challenged it may be an option.
As you can tell it is not yet finished but will have two struts to hold it open and a latch system that is capable of being locked. I have talked to him about a gasket seal on the edge. In case you cannot tell from the pictures, this lid hangs over the edge to reduce dust and water intrusion.
He can do a rack as well although this one is probably not going to have one.
Tell me what you think.
