    DYI Truckbed rack

    Im debating on building a rack for the bed of my truck using the slats in the bedliner out of 2x4's or 2x6's

    I'd like it to bolt into the bed of my pickup and beable to securly and safely transport my bike. I'd also like to beable to take it out when needed.

    I searched for picks but I didnt come up with very many.

    I know some of you have done something like this. Do you have any pictures to give me an Idea?

    I'd appreciate it. thank you

    Damn! thats slick!

    if there are lots of threads, Ill do more searching.

    This is for my ford ranger step side.
    What I was thinking was to keep my front wheel on, and have it slide into a slot and stand up right. then put some 1 inch holes in the slots to lock my bike up, but I dont want it to bounce out and bend spokes.


    Sorry for adding another useless thread. Mods can delete it if they like

    Heres one I came up with... lets me have my tool box with all my motoercycle fluids and tools in front, my Yakima basket for items like fire wood and the underneath for my ice chests, genny, floor jack etc. I added two fork mounts on the outside edges. The crossbars are from Inno... 2011 Inno Truck Rack Stays - (set of 4) - Inno RT101 Stays (fits standard truck beds) / RT102 Stays (fits c-channel track systems)
