Anyone have a headache rack?

Planning on putting a lightbar on my truck eventually for the Fire Department. I don't want this thread to be all about the legality and safety of running lights and sirens, just headache racks.

Nobody makes a mounting kit specifically for tacomas as far as I know, so this is my only option, other than drilling a couple 1/2" holes in the roof for a stud mount setup.

Anyone have one? What brand? How is it holding up? Did you mount any lights on it?

I plan on mounting my strobe lightbar to it, looks something like this:

I came up with some plans and had a rack custom built during a time when I didnt have access to the equipment to build it myself. Here are some pics. Its all Aluminum and uses the 4 (5?) bolts in the side of the bed that hold the tie down rails to secure.

Those look pretty beefy. I Just might end up getting mine custom made. One of the guys on the FD does some metalwork/welding on the side. Just seeing what kind of designs are out there to choose from too.
