    did your setups have a small square tab also on the mounting bracket?? my bed has no square holes in it for them to sink into....

    this back rack was bought on criagslist and came off a ford. im mounting it on a chevy. it is the right size i can modify it if needed but im thinking it will be able to mount up without any major work

    Best picture that i have. This Pro-rack is designed for the 2003 and up dodge rams, but fits well on my K2500.

    I really want to trade my tool box for a gull wing style. I have to leave a gap of 1-2'' between the rack and box to allow room for the lid to hinge. This summer I am going to try and get my tonneau cover fitted behind the tool box. Will be an awesome setup.
