Tail Lights

Truck Rack  ::  2012

Knock-down plywood rack for truck bed.  I’d thought about using posts to make a rack on top of the truck bed, but it would have to overhang the tailgate by 2  1/2 ft. for support of an 8 ft. sheet.  I can always make the other rack later, so the truck would have 2 levels.  For now this one is more compact & meets these criteria:

  • with tailgate up, has to fit in a 6 ft. opening
  • with tailgate down, has to pull out & support a 8 ft. plywood sheet
  • clears wheel wells
  • has to break down for storage
  • a tarp can easily protect the sheets
