Custom built bike rack over bed

Recommended Posts

Hopefully finishing this up tonight with the clamps and then painting, but here is a sneak peak off the truck on all the parts I fabbed up.  This will allow me to keep the tonneau cover over the bed rails and still have a bike rack in the back.   Total materials cost was under $50 with all the nuts and bolts, metal, bars, brackets, etc.

That would be great with a retracting bed cover!
Nicely done! :)


Yea, it is difficult to get stuff out of the back of the bed now.  Originally I had the rack farther forward and you could lift a section of the TriFold up and each everything, but with the middle bike reversed the back tire was hitting the window and I had to slide the rack closer to the back of the truck.  


I'm looking to see about a rolling or retracting cover, but cheap is the name of the game for me!

If the brackets on the side were a few more inches taller vertically, a roll up vinyl cover would probably roll right under that rack.  Awesome work on the rack!


EDIT: Nevermind, forgot about the rails the roll up covers need on the bed rails to roll on.
