    Checked Walmart and they didn't have it. Gander Mtn is probably the next option for me. It's about 30 minutes away.

    If anyone can't find the parts or doesn't want to put it together I can get everything and drill out the holder and sell it as a full kit

    That's a perfect solution ! I was hoping to find someone on this site that found an easy way to mount those rod holders. I plan on doing the same this spring

    I like the concept.

    I'd like it more if I could leave my holder in place when putting the bed cover on. These stick up above the rail.

    I've got some ideas on how to lower it, but interested to see if anyone has already done so??

    Re-invention and all that. :D

    Try a piece of acrylic and paint it black and use the same way of mounting

    Just a little update on my personal one.

    I mounted my hilift the same way with the bolts and used two extra long bolts on one side of the hilift to mount my fishing rod holder

    Really my only picture until I take one

    And they work for a umbrella holder lol
