Stake Bed Rails on my Ranger




Making a set of stake rails for my 2009 Ranger longbed. Using oak lumber and stainless steel hardware. Left side done and tomorrow starting on right side and front rails.
Opinions...?

I like it; the wood looks like Red Oak !
I wish I had pictures of my '88 Ranger with a wood rack.
My wife called my truck the Lumber Yard, LoL !

Thanks Scrambler. Yeah, red oak, light golden oak stain and 3 coats of poly urethane.
Pics of finished rig. Still debating about a front rail behind cab.

I luv Red Oak.
The Front of the bed... I did a Back Rack setup... something that went over the cab enough to carry things on it and buiilt a little heavier than the sides, oh ya, I tapered the part above the side inward with a raiser on the top.
Although I cant find a picture, the pattern I used was four board, two approximately 2.5" wide, for the top and bottom boards, and two 1" wide for the center. The front kept the same pattern but added a couple more boards.

Everyones different, out here in SoCal, Wine and Horse Country, the Rack setup wouldn't look out of place.

Thanks guys. Pleased the way it turned out. Been getting alot of looks from other pick up truckers.
Been on the road with the motor home for the past month. Got to give it a good cleaning, then back to detailing the Ranger. Going to get underneath and give the frame a good cleaning/detailing .
Brush off surface rust and a coat of rust preventive.
