We made one with 1.5" tubing and welded it together. Doubles great for carrying the conoes and kayak.

Cross-bed toolbox keeps stuff away from the window generally.

I have the Backrack safety rack. It's one well built rugged window protector. Heavy duty mesh protecting the window. And no holes to drill.

I have a box/enclosed racks I built for the truck so I can haul large loads of debris, firewood, mulch and other stuff. It's taller then the cab so I cut a hole out and screwed a piece of expansion metal over it. The last truck I had, I didn't cover the hole. So I was always treading light when tossing firewood in the bed. After I finally broke the sliding window out, I duct taped the hole to get through the winter. Trading it in for another that spring.

you can bring a half sheet of plywood with you ,and when your loading stuff your worried about,stand the wood upright in the box then load it .I have done this often as I do a lot of demo work and clean-ups ,and have never had an issue with it .
