    I would like to gage interest in my back racks. I have had several requests for doing a group buy on them. The regular price on them is $800.00. If I can get a minimum of 5 I could go with 735.00 and if I get 10 or more I could get down to 700.00. Prices are for bare metal. Long bed version will be additional $50.00 The short bed version is 48" long, the long bed is 60" long

    The racks are appx 80lbs and are extremely tough and sturdy. Made from 1.75" X .090 wall HREW tube and .750 X .060" wall on the pocket area. There are several tie down provisions. The mounting surface sits on top of bed rails and is secured into factory railing. The height is desinged to keep center of gravity low whild still haveign plenty of room underneath for coolers, dog crates etc. The top heigth will keep top loaded items (gear, roof top tents etc) out of wind since it wil still stay somewhat tucked behind cab.

    Fastenal shipping is per time zone
    Pacific: 95.00
    Mountain: 120.00
    Central: 145.00
    Eastern: 170.00

    Long bed version add 25.00 to shipping

    Please let me know if people are really interested and I will get a GB going

    From the the pics, it looks like it's centered on the bed. I'm wondering if it would look out of place for the long bed guys. If making one longer isn't possible, is mounting it closer to cab doable? I've never seen what it looks like under the bed rails so unfamiliar on how it secures on to it.

    I have it moved back away from the cab besause I have a light and antenna bar up at the front of the bed. It can be slid all the way forward. The length could be extended for a long bed however it would make a huge difference in shipping cost because it would exceed a standard pallet size. The other option is to make it in pieces and assemble but it loses a lot of integrety done that way.

    Longbed is do-able, especially if you want to pick it up, that will help you a lot. The basket size will not change but the rear area will be extended to near full length of the bed. Add 75 bucks

    How much more do you think it would add to shipping for the long bed?

    What are the basket dimensions? Could u make it bigger if I wanted it?
    I just want the rear part to be big enough to hold and strap down my spare 33".
    The basket to hold two 5 gallon gas cans, a 5gallon water can, medium size ammo can and stuff.

    I would guess shipping for a long bed version would go up by about 100 bucks. Would need to confirm with Fastenal.

    The basket is about 22" front to back useable. Plenty of room for cans. The rear is the appx 26" for the short one. Add an additional foot for the longbed and you would be in great shape for a spare. I personally keep all of that weight down low and try to put the lighter stuff up high. Just depends on what you are doing tho, if center of gravity is not an issue then no worries.

    If It came as a WIY kit it would have relatively the same rigidty and stiffness as one that comes completely assembled. It would also make it easier to add length for us long bed guys. Which is obv. there is some demand for as no one currently makes/mass produces them for Long beds. :cool:

    So 22" from from front to back, what's the width of the basket? Same? I would only use this rack for moderate speeds offroad on my expo runs,.so center of gravity would not be an issue.

    Wow great design, looks well thought out, plenty of tie down locations, love the built in basket. Just plain SWEET. Darn shame you're all the way out there on the left coast. GLWS $700.00 would be a nice deal.
