    Ive got a GM truck1999-2006 and Im looking to build a rack for my truck. Could someone give me dimentions of theirs? Height of posts and distance between along with outrigger bars. Maybe a couple pics of corner brackets and anything else. Bar between and around brake light.

    Thanks in advance.:waving:

    I just built one last week for my 05 Chevy. mines 72 inches wide and about 23 inches tall.
    I used 1 3/4 square tubieng and 1 3/4 flat stock. Just measure between your bed rails for the width of the outriggers as you call em. for those I used 1/4 plates then bolted it to the bed with my toolbox. Heres the link to it.
