Carrying pipe

Posted for gusbuster

I want to be able to safely carry 20 ft bundles of pipe on my ĺ ton truck. (No more than a 1000 ft of pipe.) Does anybody know of a bolt on post for the front bumper like plumberís use? I already have rack system for the bed of the truck, but due to unbearable whistling noise while driving freeway speeds, I had to cut off the over the cab part of the racks. One big thing, I need to be able to take off this add on when not in use.

I would insert links to 2 pics of my truck.
Let me know
Thanks,
John

I have seen a bracket welded onto front bumpers, that allowed a pipe support to be dropped into it, and pinned to secure it. I don't think it was a manufactured item, but a custom welding job.

Without going permanent, youre probably going to have to go custom.

Being in poly territory, the truck was only carrying a small bundle of copper or PVC, so one bracket on the passenger side of the front bumper was support enough, when combined with the rack on the truck cap.

Avoid dynamiting the brakes or you'll have a "pipe story" like most of us do.

if you are going "custom" i would get something fabbed up that goes into the front of the existing rack you have now that hangs over the cab. It will give the pipe a little more support and allow you to carry more
