Headache Rack

Wha'yall think about the headache rack I made?

The widest sections are 2X6 with a .120 wall thickness. The other sections are 2X2 .25 wall thickness and 2X4 .25 wall thickness.

They will be adorned with "d" rings for tie downs and such.

It sits appx 3 inches above the cab and I built it as a shooting platform also for my hunting camp and target practice for some of the weapons I've built also.

looks great for a shooting rack, a little tall for a headache rack IMO

Looks good! IMO lights would look good on it, a couple facing forward on top and a couple facing the rear under the top bar?

I got plans to build one rj. Me and you are going to have to have a barbeque when you get back. I don't care if it is is in the middle of winter with a ft of snow on the ground. I will fire up the barbeque and throw some venni steaks on it for you.

It had to serve two purposes. One stop the 4 wheeler and anything else form further damage to the bed and cab. Luckily the rear window was never broken. Second be tall enough so that shooting off of it was somewhat pleasant and that the blast was far enough away so that the paint was not damaged. I have plans to have the roof Linx coated anyway since I take my truck just about anywhere I can get it.

It took me about 5 hours to build. It took me 5 hours to get the dang left side bed bolt out. I am in the process right now of removing the fuel tank so I can fully remove the bed bolt. I had to cut the head off of it after using a 1.2 impact, 3/4 impact and finally a 1 inch impact and all I got was the clip-nut movement from side to side. It will attach at the forward bed bolts and be secured to the side bed rails with two 1/2-13 grade 8 bolts.

One thing about Ford is the stupid engineers and there torx head bolts. Sure its a great concept and I like it but dang guys come on a t50 for a 5/8ths inch bolt it should be like a t80 or so.

I twisted 4 T50 bits and then drilled off the head. I can tell you the bolts are a tough as they claim.

I had it Linx coated and picked it up today. I am working on a new version for those who don't need the shooting rail up top.

Lights would only interfere with the shooting platform and you cant use lights when your hunting anyway

A tire mounted over the cab would be easy to make. I already have plans to make a rail that extends over the cab with scallops on it for the forearm support of rifles.

So it is legal to hunt from a vehicle in Ga huh. Maybe I should move then.

Yes you can hunt Hogs from a vehicle that is not under power meaning non moving or running it must be stationary and the engine off. On my lease of 12 thousand acres I could probably hunt off of it anywhere at anytime if I were a poacher or renegade but at last I'm just a hunter.
