I am new in the business and my 5'4" wife helps out. I have to keep my trimmers and blower in the back of my 04 F-150 4X4. We can't lower the tailgate because it will hit the trailer. It is quite the pain trying to reach over the side of the side to the truck to get something out of the bed of the truck. Having my wife get soemthing for me is out of the question, and it is only a matter of time before something gets damaged. Money is tight now being a newbie, and these rack would be a great help.
