    So i got this rack for free form a member here, he had it stored outside so it was rusty and all faded, didnt have any mounts, so i made my own, fabbed and welded up the mounts painted it and tossed it on. We had no idea what truck this rack came off of, he got it from someone and was going to use it on his sanding rig.

    FIRST PIC IS OF THE RACK BEFORE ANYTHING WAS DONE TO IT

    Looks good. Did you put rubber or something between the BR and your bed rail? It's a really good idea if you didn't. JMO:drinkup:

    only problem with it is u probably dont have a good ground like it is now. thats what i wanted when i put my bar on. it had to have a good ground so all i had to do was run feed wires
