    Not sure if that's what you call it. I have seen some mini light bars mounted on these bars just behind the cab. Kind of look like the start of a ladder rack. I just bought a 6 strobe light bar and I would like to mount it on this. I have seen a few guys on this site have them on htere truck. I am sure this is something I can make but I would buy one if I could find it. Can anyone point me in a direction?

    Go to www.performanceproducts.com

    Depending on what bar you bought you can also get its dedicated mount for your roof, Galls.com has that.

    Be sure to aim the lightbar once it's installed.

    I think the style of rear rack you are talking about is The Back Rack (actual name). There are a few sites out there that sell them. I bought one a while ago, have since modified it and I'm waiting to sandblast and paint it before I install it.

    light bar

    I also have the backrack. This thing is built so well. I mounted two smaller magnet mount strobes on the top bar. and also put on 2 Hella 7" round lights for backing up, and when I load the truck.Very happy with it.

    this is the rack that I built for my truck. $75.00 in steel and like two hours to cut, bend, weld, and paint in my garage.

    FlyKelly, I bought one this afternoon for $40.00 and it already had a stobe. I bought it from a guy in Canton. He says he gets about 2 a years on his company trucks and he takes them off. He has my # so when and if he calls I will get in touch with you.
