    Custom bike mount for my truck tool box

    I just did not have the heart to drill holes into my truck bed, so I designed a toolbox fork block rail. I thought about just mounting the fork blocks directly to the tool box, but I wanted the freedom to change things around depending on how many bikes. i am very fortunate to have a friend who is one of the best aluminum welders that I know of. I used 1" / .125" wall square tubing and .125" plate for the rail and then the Xsport rail mount fork blocks. I hope this gives people some good ideas for their own mounts!

    Don't forget to use a generous amount of silicone to seal up the holes unless you want rusty tools

    I like it! How close do the mounts get to your rear window when the box is open? I just did something similar to this but I put my fork mount on the front bed rail, I had to slide my box back an few inches to get the lid to clear the mount.
