  1. Installed - Harbor Freight Universal Aluminum Truck Rack

    For anyone interested: decided to take a hacksaw and chop the rack down by 5 inches. Made sure everything was square, tapped in new bolt holes, put it all back together. Definitely looks better and still supports the canoe!

  4. Truck Bed Cooler for camping?

    Lol. A few shovelfuls of snow in between cleaning off the driveway and the cooler is stocked for the week! Extra frosty beers.
  5. Truck Bed Cooler for camping?

    Hi Sarah - I like keeping a cooler in the bed. My Maverick's also cactus grey. Our needs might be different since you're looking at a much bigger capacity but this one's an Ozark Trail rotomolded 26 qt I got at Walmart years back. Fits between the cargo rings and I just lash it down with a...

    Would definitely love a roof rack and if you have any leads on a decently priced one, I - and I'm certain others - would like to know about it! The Thule and Yakima versions are out of my budget for the time being.

I figure an angle grinder might be able to chop off any excess height, but unsure of how far the thread for the screw goes. You can see the product owner manual here for an idea of how it came together. I don't have any...

    HI Liz: I'm likely to keep the rack on since I plan to use for other purposes. Should come off fairly easily though. Canoe length is 15 feet, 8 inches long.

    Hi mark, good thinking on the light bar - probably too far back / too steep of an angle for a useful light bar using this rack setup as-is. The front tie-downs are homemade hood loop straps (made from a spare lashing strap and grommets) that bolt directly to the body, under the hood. Exactly...

    Hi all, Sharing my experience and photos with the Harbor Freight Aluminum Rack. 10% off right now due to a President's Day Sale so ~$270. Could have waited for the market to start coming out with custom-fitted racks but was getting antsy and I have some mods in mind for the near future...
