    lol, the metal we used for that one was what we pulled apart from a shelving system that a store got rid of a few years back. the frame was totally modular and we just cut it apart and used the metal.

    ill be making one for my truck this winter, its gonna look different, not soo in your face with all the chrome, but more menacing and sleek...

    you'd be better off asking the other guy who made his backrack on here recently, the quality of his welds are absolutely ridiculous, it looks amazing. tell him u want this design.

    hahaha, ill have to tell my brother, he picked those out, he wanted it to look like a semi truck. I dont like the chrome either, looks a lil redneck for me. mine will have led strips, no chrome.

    You did a nice job, I need to paint my backrack with that herculiner-that looks nice and will probably hold up better than paint

    i got a product that i can get thats simalar to the hurcaliner but much more tough. its call KEY KOAT paitable under body coating. the stuff is tuff! its black but you can paint over it with any color. i used it on my old ultra mount and did the whole back side then painted over it red and i got soooooooo many compliments on it. as far i know auto body shops can only get it.

    Pro Touch,
    looks great, i agree with everyone else that the chrome isn't my style. one suggestion: get a roll of black wire loom and some black zip ties and hide all those wires nice and neat behind the rack...makes the whole thing look cleaner IMO...but nice job!

    actually, he had to take the rack off b/c he missed a spot lining it the first time and the exposed weld started to rust, so he took the whole rack off and redid it, which is why the wires are just hanging. i had loom running across the horizontal piece and screwed in with cable holders

    ahh i see, that would be nicer...maybe he will re hang it since the holes are already there! i have mine zip tied on currently, i may screw it though, at the install time i was really torn putting holes into my shiney new rack, but it has a few now for CB antenna mounts, so i guess a few more wouldnt hurt...lookin at new trucks tho, which probably means a new rack, so i might not bother! new truck = payup, but would be really nice xysport

    i swear i saw this truck at yankee lake, has he ever been there? the reason i recognized it was because of the tow hooks that were mounted on the meyer forks.
