    Well, Ive been thinking about how I wanted to build my Back rack for quite some time. I constantly have stuff in the back and wanted to make somthing to protect it. Hauling Dirtbike sucked because there was nothing solid to attached to besides by bed rings. I now have 6 anchor points that are solid as a rock.

    Specs. All the Tube is 2x2x1/8". The angles are 4"x3"x3/8" stock. All the gussets were made out of 3/8" plate. The back rods are 1"x3/8" flat bar. I drill & tapped for 3/8" bolts. Bolts are 3/8"x 1 1/4" long S.S. I just got it back from the powdercoater (150$). I got the stock from work, so for under 200 bucks I think I have a pretty sweet little rack. Makes my 4 cylinder look tuff!

    Had to take out some of the screws on the bed rail to get the flat bar in place.

    3/8" S.S. Allen Head Anchors. I think they look pretty good.

    Looks good. Are you going to mount that center bracket or is it stable enough.
