    Roof Rack on Bed Rail

    Has anyone tried bolting a roof rack like the one below directly to the bed rail of your truck? I have a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado so I am not worried about putting a hole or two in the bed rail. I just want to keep my bed space open for other things and I have two bikes I want to transport on a regular basis. Thanks.

    I'd be worried that the sheet metal wouldn't be strong enough without some support from the underside.

    Works great, I do it on all my work trucks.
    I use the Yakima roof mount towers.
