    Not yet, the 2nd bar is still getting powder coated.

    I'll hold it up in my truck tomorrow and snap a pic.

    I was going to bolt right up under the tie down bed rail, it will have to be drilled.

    Clamp it in place, drill 4 holes through the bar and the bed, 4 bolts, 4 lock nuts and 4 fender washers.

    That's how I am going to do mine when I get the time.

    Im interested in this. Would like to see the other one mounted to your truck. Being that you had 3 slots made, how close are the wheel wheels to the tire if you had a bike in the outside slot?

    When I removed the rear tie down rail I couldn't believe how flimsy the back of the bed was. I used the existing 5 torxs bolts and threaded bed nuts to mount the bar.

    The wheel wells are right next to the tire (+ or - a few inches), 3 bike fit perfectly. I'll measure the thinness of the metal when I get home tonight.

    The bar I installed in my truck is 2" x 2" L-channel and the one I am selling is 3" x 3", I only haul dirt bikes so didn't need it to be that beefy. Would be perfect for heavy road bikes.

    You could bolt this one to the stock bed rail location also although its 3 X 3 correct? I only haul dirtbikes also, usually just my own but sometimes two.

    Yes it would mount to the existing rail mounts.

    Mine is a 2" x 2" and sits a little lower than the bed side caps.
