    Hey everyone.

    I've enjoyed looking through the site - a lot of great info. Here's my new truck:

    Plan on leveling her out and putting some 265/75s on her. My main question is: has anyone mounted a headache rack with a toolbox on top, and how did you mount the headache rack specifically? I'm planning on welding the headache rack with some tabs that come down from the base and tie-into the rail system rather than drilling through the cap. I'll mainly be using this for ladder and kayak transport (not heavy pipes or lumber) so I think the rail system should be strong enough. Any insight and close up photos would be much appreciated.

    I'll probably use expanded metal like on my old truck:

    I mounted that one directly to the bed rail by drilling through it but would rather use the rail system. Just wondering if anyone has experience or suggestions on the best way to mount headache racks and ladder racks to to top of their bed.
