Headache Rack

Here is an image of the headache rack I want to build. Everything is normal for a headache rack but the receiver tube at the top. I added that for a winch 2000-2500 mounted to a hitch that can be pinned when needed and removed when not. I elk hunt alone a lot and using the winch an a ATV ramp makes getting the elk in the back easy for 1 person.

I made it using Google sketchup

What do you guys use to run wire through the insides to prevent them from getting cut on sharp edges?

Finally finished the rack and got it installed. Here is a picture.

I need to add the lights and winch for the receiver tube.

That is a very good looking headache rack. Split loom will probably provide the best protection but is also the most difficult to work with in an enclosed space without making large entry and exit holes. Thicker heat shrink will be the easiest as you can just pull the wire through but will only offer a little additional protection. You'll still have to be pretty careful pulling the wire.

Off topic, but same topic... I had an old man make me look like a fool once. I killed a 225 lb hog and could not lift it into the back of my truck. Fought with it for several minutes and almost gave up and cut the sucker up in the field. I went back to the camp and asked the last guy left to come give me a hand. He just laughed at me and taught me a good one. Get a long rope, tie one end to the hog round it's neck, other end to a tree, hook rope over gooseneck ball and drive forward. Hog loaded itself. I bought the ol' man a 12 pack of beer and he shared it with me. The winch is a great idea by the way. lol
