Here is a headache rack, well more or less a beacon and rear lights bar that we have on a couple of trucks.

Aluminium, just makes it hard to see out the back the way the fins are... Not use to it i guess, i just put it back on... will give it a bit and decide to sell or keep it.

That is nice, I like how you made it go all the way down the rails. I went the easy way and got the back rack. Don't use it anymore, it just sits in the shop, so I could fit the dump insert!

Yeah i thought i would extend it out all the way to the tail gate to help protect the bed rail. Adds alittle to the truck as well. Also, you can't see but added two tabs that hang down so i could mount it to the bed box. And there are a couple places that i added so you could strap things down to it. Works pretty well.
