    So I do roofing damage appraisals and just started. I have an access cab tacoma. (2015) and have to carry a 40' ladder. I can't find a rack that I like that's not an outrageous price. I'd like to build my own but don't have any welding experience. I can't afford a custom one. Help me out?

    Big blanket on the roof of the truck, throw it up there and tie it at front and rear. :notsure:

    Worked for the 16' 1x6's I hauled last summer.

    So I finally got it worked out how I wanted it. Placed a half piece of unistrut on each side of the bed just above the wheel wells. Drilled holes in the top edge of the unistrut aligned with the roof rack holes. Here's a pic IMG_20150923_183316_590.jpg IMG_20150923_183339_033.jpg
