Well I have wanted one for a long time, but there were a few things that kept me from getting one Confused 1 the price of the swing outs 2 I didnt want my tire on my tailgate blocking my view. So I just made my own bed mount carrier. It was all free and I made it the way I wanted so I cant complain about any thing. It mounts right into the stock rear seat mounting holes. Plus I didnt lose any view out the back. What do you guys think? I am also going to weld on tabs to mount my hi lift jack, shovel and pick/axe and a air tank between the bulkhead and carrier just under the tire. I will add those pictures when I get them done.

Nice, where'd you get the blue square tube?? I had a hell of a time making nice welds on that stuff. I'd run a perfect bead in one place and squeeze pidgeon shxt on the pipe. Does your dog approve of that being in her way??

Hey brother…
I hope that’s your wife’s cat… Do you work for Fairview? Nice EB half-cab and nice job on the custom tire rack. How do you like your 5.5 lift? Who made it? Are your radius arms custom or bought?

Thanks

It is the old racking I tore out of my warehouse to install new snap racking. I gave a ton away, kept a ton for myself, and recycled 2 30' flatbeds of this stuff. I had same problem welding to it, but its free Very Happy Oh and the dogs would rather be in the passenger seat Rolling Eyes

Thanks. I actualy work in Clackamas. My 5.5 lift is pretty good to me, it was done by Bob at All4Fun. The extended arms were with the lift I had to remove 2 leafs from each spring in order to get the articulation I wanted, so now they are 9leaf and still good and stiff but give, they should give a bit more now that I have about 200 lbs more in the bed. And yes the cat is hers and the DAGZ are mine, but the cat gets along with both the dog its kinda weird Very Happy
