Has any one modified the Thule 501 insta-gater to mount in the front of the bed? The system works fine but I dislike side loading anything into my truck. I was thinking of mounting the rack directly to the bed, but would like it removable. Second idea is mount two of them to a 5 foot 2X6 and pull that in and out of the bed. I am not sure if the 2X6 is enough to stay in the bed. I have seen others with fork mounts attached to 2X4's and that seems to hold up. Any advice from the all knowing MTBR family?
