    answer more than one if interested, its multiple choice

    post #32

    ok so he made bed bars to sell people and it got me thinking. i can probably make a bracket to fit into the bed rail such as what he did. make a section come out in the top, in the middle, or even the bottom of the mounting bracket to mount a 1.5" pipe in it. The section coming out would stick out 1/4" with an inside diameter of just over 1.5" to not allow any movement.

    if i did this then you would be able to buy some pipe wherever you are without paying a lot in shipping at all, for those out of state interested in his. you mount a pipe in the brackets before you install them in the bed rail, then just stick them in and place however far in the bed you would like.

    if there are people that might be interested in this i might actually go ahead and be productive with my time rather than sit around and shit haha

    theres a pole on whether, if interested, the mounting point for the pipe should be above the bracket (like he did on his), level of the bracket, or below the bed rail mounting bracket. there is also an option on pipe diameter for me to get an idea when i model it out on a CAD.

    thanks guys and you inspire me to do little things like this and idk if people like the idea or not but hey no one else has gotten around to do this so why not be different, right!

    How about a proof of concept. I'm not sure I understand your explanation.

    ya i totally understand man haha i dont have access to CAD until monday i could probably draw up something real quick.

    If you look at the link in post 32, the bracket will look something like that except where the pipe is welded to the bracket there would be just a 1/4" protrusion with an inside diameter of just above whatever diameter design you guys vote on most. that would allow you to buy pipe where you live to cut down on cost.

    I think it's a good idea, lots of applications, would be good for bike racks in shortbeds etc. Find a good way to attach an oversize tire for cheap? But I don't need them.

    Make them strong, cheap, and black, someone will buy them.
