    I got mine from www.sirennet.com for $233.00 delivered. Just like Frozen001 said, look under the push bar section. They can get you any Back Rack accessory that might not be listed on their web site.

    04superduty, are the toolbox brackets the things you have your amber light mounted on? or do you only need the toolbox bracket if you have a toolbox and want the backrack too? or is it to secure the rack to the bed?

    The tool box kit is to mount a tool box with the back rack, the light mounting plate is seperate.

    Just a quick note on the toolbox brackets. I purchased them when I got my back rack, and ended up not usinging them for two reasons.

    1) It raised the toolbox by almost 2" making it near impossible to see much of anything behind me

    2) With the toolbox mounted to it (I have the larges weatherguard box), it left large gaps in around the mounting holes, making the "weather tight" box not weather tight(I used to get snow in the box).

    Keep this in mind when you are purchasing these, they might not be what you want.
