anyone make a roof rack for a suburban?

I'm looking at picking up a 1986 suburban tomorrow, and I'm curious if anyone makes a roof rack for these? It seems like since I've joined the army, I never have enough room for soldiers and gear, and I figure if I had a roof rack we could toss our stuff up there and have more room in the truck for bodies. I've been looking around on here and haven't found much except custom ones, and right now I dont really have the tooling to build one here. Lemme know if anyone knows of a production rack or at least someone who makes them. Preferably in the Fayetteville, NC area if anyone makes one that is fairly custom.

All you need is a welder and a way to cut the tubing.Use some square tube and build one.Do a search for Confer.They build all kinds of racks.

I think I will just build one. No one makes one long enough for what I want. I figure I'll go pick up a welder and see if I can find some long square tubing and go at it.
