    They are brackets that screw into the bed cleats. So you can run a cross bar and thule or yakima racks. Check it out. Dude made them specifically for our trucks.:D

    I looked at them, for the price you are almost better off getting some cross bars specifically made for out truck. A guy on TW made me a pair that I had powder coated so much stronger for the money.

    I would consider it if they'd throw in the girl in bikini with it as well... It's a nice (roof)rack!...

    Surf pad one side, bike rack in center, snowboard rack other side and camping gear in the bed. And a utility rack to hold the kayak. The ultimate trip!:D

    Demonstrating that it would be very easy to build your own bed racks with the unistrut of your choice, unistrut L brackets, spring nuts for the factory U channel and you can make it all look nice with a coat of the bedliner paint rustoleum makes. Depending on which size unistrut you choose, I am willing to wager that the entire product would cost less than $40.
