I've been toying with designs for a headache rack for Tacomas that can mount using the stock bedrails and is sturdy enough to take quite a beating. Here are some pics of the unpainted rack itself and will be uploading some pictures explaining the mounting system very soon.
I'd love to hear any feedback, suggestions, or requests. I have included some holes at the top of the rack for tie downs and since it the sides are plasma cut, I can do all kinds of custom options.
Some pics of the mounts: These are made to be about the length of a toolbox. It is not pushed all the way forward because we were pressed for time and my friend had the ammo can mod on. The mounts can also be changed up for taste and individual style. I am working on a shorter one for those that dont have toolboxes. More detailed pics and mounted rack pics coming soon!
The round holes are for bolts that attach to backing plates that slide into the bed rail and the long slots are for J-hooks for tool box mounting, this has been tested on my buddies taco.
More pics, I decided to tweak the design a little bit and will be making the parts next week. I am going to be making the rack little tighter, you can see how the mounts work in these pics though. I can throw some holes in the side of the rack if you guys can think of something that is practical or just looks cool.. anywho here are some more pics.
