    I was gonna tie it into something in the bed, then it dawned on me that would be bad when flexing. So it will just be a basket. Look at my gallery! I have made some other stuff also. Skid, gas can cage, etc..

    Very nice! Just need to get that baby powder coated. :thumbsup:

    Now if you could style the front of your second rack like the 4130 trucks use (light tabs and the bar angled forward to protect the lights), and attachments for snowboard racks... I'd buy one. :drool:
