    Do any of you guys out there have these diamond plated bed rails? I really like the look of them. Who’s got em?? How’d you get them?

    I've thought about doing it, just to keep the bedrail in better shape.

    But I think if I do it, it will likely be part of a rack system like the All-Pro pack rack.

    I made mine, used cardboard to make a templet. Purchased the material off a site I forgot where, but a buddy that has a shop helped me bend it and cut it. I painted it black used 3x self tapping screws to hold it in place. Also used some rubber to place underneath it to keep it from rubbing on the paint. It’s been like this for little over a yr now. I scratch it, and repaint it, saved my bed a few times.A2521664-1A08-4322-8FF4-4FCB9B451A94.jpgD8FF3CC0-D0E9-4455-B3B8-DEDB6FE4370E.jpg 526D93B5-F1B8-459D-A6AA-4C4EF6D1D01D.jpg

    Might get rust underneath from vibrations and water setting underneath.
