Nice Rack!

Almost went to get help mounting the truck rack this morning.  Suddenly it occurred to me that I was able to lift and position 300lb, 42 ft wide steel trusses by myself - so the rack should be a breeze.  Cinched some nuts to hold the width position then built rails using 10ft 2x4's.  Jacked then up and slid the rig into place.  Most of the effort went into tightening all the nuts and bolts after it was mounted.  79,91,49.0,C

Excellent! I knew you'd figure a way to do it without calling for help. Looks great, and will increase the versatility of the truck. Will you be taking it off after transporting the roofing material?

John, you should really be able to overload that pu now. I need one of those for the falcon.

Hi John

Perhaps you could train Jose to help you lift heavy things in future?

Rack's looking good!

I don't know how you do it but you always manage to suprise me every time. Ingenuity at its best.

I just noticed I am the 446,446 visitor, rather odd number...

I think we've discovered where MacGyver has retired to.
