Default Anyone ever make some hood racks for a D21?

So I've been wheeling alot lately in the desert and last night I almost got stuck in some sand, thankfully I had another person with me with a loaded bed so the weight helped tremendously. This in turn made me get some traction mats but I can't really fit them in my bed because it's mostly filled with gear. The cabin is also filled, I've seen certain offroaders have these racks that go on the hood and I've seen them carry farm jacks up to thin wheels. Has anyone made some for a D21? I'm planning to make one to carry my traction mats, is it a good idea? I think so.

That looks great but wouldn't work for me unfortunately. I got rollbar lights that would be blocked by something on the roof. I wonder if I could mount this on the hood.

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. You might be able to fabricate something up like the rack in the thread and get a removable basket for it. Only thing I would be cautious of is the line of sight.
Unless you thing you could do baskets that hang off either side of the bed that aren't all that thick.
