    I came up with a design for a tire rack that attaches to the bedrail. These are made to fit a variety of tire sizes. Here are some pictures... I am working up pricing in the next day or so. I also have a video of a test that I will post next time I get a chance to upload it. I was very pleased with how solid the rack turned out... it didnt budge at all with the brake tests, peeling out around corners and even the ramp (as seen in the video). I will be taking orders as soon as I get a final price. Please leave me some feedback!

    These now come with mounted wheel studs to allow the use of a tire tool and stock size lug nuts (included)

    I can get these powdercoated in batches. If anyone is interested in getting one with the coating, let me know and I'll start a list.

    I'll have a price tomorrow or tuesday. It sticks out about 9 to 10 inches from the rail. I can change it up a bit for different rims and tires if necessary.

    I was planning to get one of these made soon. How much are you planning to sell these for? What tire sizes can this accommodate?

    Yeah, the vid turned out sweet!

    From our measurements they should be able to handle up to 35's. I'll have a price tomorrow.

    RFQ's are out... pricing for unpainted mounts will come back this afternoon. If I can get a large enough order together, I'll get them powdercoated or painted... Any suggestions/requests on colors?
