Default RTT Bed Rack



Hooked up with a local fabricator who managed to bring my vision to reality. Had some inspiration from other racks I found searching various forums.

1-1/2" .090 HREW tube for the basic rack structure
1"x2" 1/8"T box for the actual RTT to rack connection.
1-1/2"x2" 1/8"T angle for the bedrail connection.



And with the tent stowed.


Brian is a great guy to work with. Super easy to communicate with and not 'wedded' to doing things his way. Really, the rack turned out just the way I would have built it, if I had the skills/tools to do so.

Let's see if it'll hold up

Rick

He drives a pretty cool slammed 00 taquito. Was kind neat to see my truck next to his.

Yes they do, Jaime. Yes, they do.... I looked at what everyone else had done and took a little from each.

Set it back up in the front yard this morning and got the changing room attached..





And the welds for you sparky's





It was damp last night and rust has started already

It looks like I'll be on surfari to stay

That is really nice. I have thought about doing something like that myself for quite some time, nice to see that others have succeeded, just need to for over the dough i guess. Still, pretty sweet dude.
