    Hi Guys,
    What is the best way to do this? I don't want to drill any holes in the roof if I can avoid it....

    ladder racks

    On some types of trucks, you may be able to get a ladder rack from a van and have it hook up to your rain gutter above the door?? I would think the no-marring magnet mount would be the best and easiest, but if it isn't, then try rigging up the ladder thing? They also make roof racks that are for temporary use on cars to haul luggage, so maybe something like that would work? Mine mounts on the top of the dump bed, so holes aren't an issue for me. Good luck!

    Magnetic mount and then run it through your 3rd brake light.

    I use the 1" ratchet straps with a piece of closed cell fome on the bottom of the light.
