    Guys where can I find a cab guard/ back-rack for a ford f-250 that has wire pockets where I can place hand tools such as rakes and shovels? How do you guys carry around your hand tools?

    Yes I saw the back rack for sale used on the the other forum. I am looking for a new one.

    you want diagonal holders?....we use a 2" piece of PVC with U-bolts and big washers to hold ours to the screen...you can kind of see them in this picture

    Not exactly what I was thinking. I am having a hard time managing all the tools in my F-250. I would love to get a few racks that hold hand tools.

    I have not really had a lot of luck locating a great tool holder for shovels, rakes, forks, ect. I also need to get a chrome truck toolbox and I am leaning toward the weather guard type as they look the most heavy duty.

    I am intrigued by the PVC idea though, if I built up sides on my dump trailer I might be able to use the 2" PVC idea and save myself a ton of cash. I usually bring to each landscape install:

    2-3 Shovels
    2-3 forks
    1 large scoop shovel
    2 plastic rakes
    landscape axe
    Digging bar

    Handheld power tools
