    I like the idea of using the existing stake pockets. Something for others to keep in mind is that if you are going to be carrying heavy loads, it is probably better to use the longer mounting brackets. I'm not sure that the stake pocket would keep a heavy load from bending the headache rack forward under hard braking.

    Just a thought.

    Around here all I've heard those called are "headache racks".

    Nice work, really looks good on that truck.
    It kinda depends on what is causing the headache. A large item might be stopped, but something like rebar might make your head hurt with this rack.

    Either way nice job.

    thats a fine looking rack. i too would like a lil better look at the mounting part, any chance of a close up of that???
    i been planing on addig some thing similer to mine and was planing on running the pipe down into the corner hole then adding some bracing back out onto the bed rail. your setup look verry clean, i would rather go your way.

    Your Back Rack

    Nice job!!! What didja bolt the corners to? All the PU's I've seen have rectangular holes that are a pain to deal with.
