    Would be nice if that sat 2" higher so it didn't completely block your 3rd brake light and cargo light.

    Yeah I went round and round with that concept. I even had the bar 2” higher in first cut but I didn’t like that it sat above the roof. Then on the other hand I didn’t like the way it looked completely under the light either... so I opted for only about half covering the 3rd brake light and as far as cargo lighting I will have some ambers mounted to the bar for when it’s needed. But yeah it was a no win kind of challenge

    You could add a set of LED's to mimic the 3rd brake light and wire them in to the same circuit. There are tons of good options for tiny red LEDs.

    Working on the next phase of the rack. Made these bed mounts for it to bolt to the bed. Decided to try out bending the plate on the press. Turned out pretty good I think...what are rulers for anyway lol

    Not feeling those down tubes to the box, but to each his own.

    Primed and installed. Can’t wait to see what it looks like in the day light. But for now here’s some beauty shots...
