My Homemade Backrack

    Slightly modified the original dimensions to make the opening wider for the 3rd brake light/cargo lights, made it just a bit shorter too. The current rotator light bracket I made is only temporary until I get a chance to make one that will fold down so I can pull the truck into my garage. Making the necessary brackets to go 'inside' the stake pocket was time consuming but worked perfectly.

    I actually had a lot of success with my LED light project. I reached a point where I was able to get all the components I needed to work really well together but due to time and money constraints I wasn't able to end up with a complete working prototype. As you can see I ended up with a Whelen G2P rotator light which I am actually very happy with right now. I know that LED's have their advantages in many ways, but until I can find the time the halogens will do for now.

    Thanks for asking.

    I originally drafted my drawing in cad and just checked it and there is 32" between the top of the two vertical posts (as you can see below).
