Headache rack

Well I made this thing over winter, and took me until now to post pics... Better late than never. Never posted pics before I hope it works.



Brake lights, and turn signals at night




Up fitter 2 switch. They are amber led strobes, along with the strobes in headlight and tail light


Unfitted 3 switch cargo and revers led lights





What do you guys think?

I like how you have a steel mesh to protect the glass rather than leaving the glass unprotected like the aftermarket ones.

Here's a link I found. Welding Tips and Tricks • View topic - Headache Rack Pretty much does all the thinking for you. The measurements are definitely right. The only thing I wish I woulda done is to powder coat it. I must not have cleaned it the greatest, because despite the 5 coats of primer, and 6 coats of black, there are still spots where the paint is wearing off.

Ah. I wish I could. Normally pretty busy myself tho. Try and do a winter project every winter when I'm home and not working. This year I'm thinking push bar, just trying to figure out if I can with my plow... And how much powder coat would be

ya depending on how high and close plow is when raised etc... I remember fabing and re-enforcing an old a-frame tow bar on the front of an old 82 toyota pickup 4x4 and attaching a plow and using the old winch to raise and lower it haha. im pretty sure we even put adjustable plow high skids on each side worked for lot of yrs when i was a kid, before the back hoe etc...

I went a little different route. had an idea and access to a cnc plasma table. $80 in steel. Still looking for a good deal on heavy duty expanded metal floor grate for the fill. Anybody know of a good place to get white lens LED lights?
