    Doesn't look too bad....I'd try it with some thicker material. Will give it more of a bulky look.

    it's pretty gappy too, put the bars closer together so it'll hold smaller things in the truck.

    i fixed the gap in the center rail last night so its not as gappy now either. It will look a lot better with some primer and paint too

    Well you cant complain about free. I understand that. Im just saying in the future if you try it again try using thicker material. But what you have is great if it does what you want.

    Looks like a homemade extender alright... Paint that thing up with some Rhino liner or something and it'll be pretty cool. I bet you save alot making your own too, isnt the factory one retail for like $350?!

    Nice job
