    What's up guys and gals!!!

    Starting to look into a bed rack for a RTT and gear to mount.

    Did you build or purchase your bed racks? If so what did you buy or what did you build and is there anything you would have done differently?

    please post pictures of set ups and if you purchased or build DIY

    I am looking for this as well ... From what I've seen online Frontrunner has a nice bed rack that is about 10 inches of so above the bed, which tucks parts of the RTT behind the truck cab.

    It a universal fit. It'll fit everything from a Tacoma to a F250
    I had it on my F150. Look at my avatar

    Anyone use the "no weld brackets" from Compact Camping Concepts (Dinoot)?

    I looked at those for my trailer build. Seems pretty stout.

    This is interesting. How is it attached to the bed? Can you share some photos (a little big larger than your avatar)?

    I do have a tonneau cover that I like to keep as well, which is attached to the insides of the bed with clamps and I am wondering if it will conflict with that ...

    I don' t think many of the truck bed racks will work with a tonneau cover unless your willing to drill through the top of your bed rails. T
    he rails on this one wrap from the top to the inside. I'll try to remember to set it on the truck and get some picks tonight. HMF has some pics on their website too.

    I’m looking at a KB Voodoo bed rack. Works with tonneau covers as well. All aluminum, two lengths and 3 or 4 heights to choose from.
