my new headache rack

I know a lot of y'all do not like headache racks but I do and they are useful so I built one. let me know what y'all think if there is enough interest I might start making them. Yes it is a Texas flag I wanted to be different.

layout before welding



checking fitment before welding side rails on

Nice work...do you have your own fab shop? I looks like for this work you will need a mig welder, band saw and drill press at a minimum.

Protect the windows and cab. Helps to haul things like pipe and lumber you can put it between the top two posts and the tailgate and it can hang over the top of the cab vs out the end of the bed. You can also tie stuff to it and mount stuff on it.
