I wanted a bed rack for my truck but I find they are way more expensive than I’m willing to spend. I am also a certified and experienced welder and fabricator so I’ll make anything I can if it means saving a buck. So I went on good old craigslist and found a guy selling a roof rack that clamps onto the gutters on a camper. Lucky for me he also had the brackets that are used to adapt them to something like a pop up roof. He had 58” cross bars and 78” so I took both.
As of right now I have welded the brackets to pieces of 1-1/2” angle. The idea is to make the brackets so they clamp to the bedside. This will make more sense when I update this small project
