We have a 96 rodeo with no roof rack. Don't kick me in the teeth yet.. I have searched under roof rack and read many many posts. Does the truck come with pre drilled holes or what?

I think you will have to drill your own holes.

I did some pretty hard mods to my 90 Wrangler...I swaped my YJ dash to a CJ dash, had to replace and rewire all but two of my guages. Just at the moment not sure the rack is worth it...lol I would love to see you map light install...:)

I have always wanted to swap in the newer rodeo dash from 95.5 to 97 in my 94, but I hear it is alot of labor intensive work.

Here is a write up on how to do map lights.

http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic ... map+lights

i ended up cutting out the entire section of headliner where the lights would go instead of just little squares.

Here is a pic of mine installed


Next mod for me is the second generation center console, because it has cup holders! :lol:

Back to the original topic...

I would imagine if your Rodeo came from the factory without a roof rack then you have no pre-drilled holes. I took my roof rack off the other week to see what I can do to make my own and each side is held down by 4 bolts with threaded inserts in the roof.

Map lights look great..:) I would like to see the console after you get it done. The cup holders in mine are BS..I ended up buying a hanging cup holder and put it from the ash tray...lol Works great!!

As stated you will need to dirll the holes, you can seal them up with some caulking or other type of sealant underneath to make sure there are no leaks. Jwood added a Rodeo rack to the top of his amigo this way. Just sit the rack on top, sit it where you want it, make a few marks for the bolt holes and drill away, oh and remove headliner before dirlling, doubt you want holes in that.
