    I'm currently pricing out a Back Rack for my truck. I plan on mounting a Whelen mini edge light bar to the rack.

    Two questions:

    For those of you who have them, how do you like the rack?

    For those of you who have lights mounted on the rack, did you bother to buy the mounting bracket or fabricate one yourself?

    The aluminum ones you can buy at Tractor Supply are the best. They won't rust or corrode and they look great, although a lot of guys have them so if you're looking for an original look you probably won't be the only guy around with one. The back racks are kinda ugly, IMO.

    It's a mini wedge. It's about 10"x28", I believe. I dont know whether to buy the mounting bracket by Backrack or fab one myself.

    No offense, Scag 48, but I am definately NOT mounting a Tractor Supply headache rack to my truck.

    love the back rack.....made my own light mount out of two small aluminum plates.....one right under the light, the other under the back rack bar.....ran mounting bolts through light, first plate and second plate.....I put a plug on the light and truck wire so I can take the light off after snow season
