    I'm curious to see how that monster of a lumber is tied down onto the truck.

    HAHA! You, sir, have a very interesting way of replying. Well, that's a given. The way the lumber sits makes me think it's gonna slide off the truck. Or am I making things more complicated?

    No , its tied to both sides at the front and at the rear so it sliding back actually tightens the front ropes , ie for it to move bacwards the ropes would have to get longer

    Now that you've mentioned it, the rope in front does look like it's pulling the lumber towards the front as I look closer. I have to try this some time. Mind sharing all the names of knots you used in that particular pic?

    So it's that simple, huh. I'll have to try this to see how it actually works. Thanks, Oz.

    To OP: Sorry to jack your thread, I shall say no more.

    I used to carry lumber and even Lally columns, and I am sorry I did. Dented up the edge of the tailgate. I have one of those hitch mounted exteners too, I really like it. Nice job on the headache rack.
