    I have a rod holder mounted to the top of my xterra. It consists of two 10 foot PVC pieces painted like a rainbow trout epoxied to a plastic toolbox for the reels to sit in. I just open up the toolbox and slide them in and out. It works like a charm and only cost about 30 bucks to make. Its a great rod holder if you don't mind doing things the ghetto redneck way.

    When I'm cruising from point A to point B, I just stick the reel end of my rods under the windshield wipers and lay the rods up the windshield & back over the roof of my car. It works great on Rock Creek & other such places. I don't think I'd do that on a long road trip but for short jaunts, it works fine. Been doing it for about 10 years with no problems
