Here is my home made truck rack / back rack.
I made this back/truck rack last weekend. It took me about 12 hours total to make this rack using 1 1/2 inch square tubing for the back rack and 1 1/4 square tubing for the rails and the rack inserts. It cost me $150.00 (Canadian) in steel and my time welding it up with my arc welder. Makes me want a mig welder !!!!
I designed it after a buddies rack. The racks that hold the canoes and boats are easily removed and stored in the garage when not in use (see pic showing racks removed).
I hate having racks on when not needed. Only the back rack and rails stay on the truck and its below the roof level which gives no wind drag for fuel savings.
What do you think?
