Not bad, hey did you go to Gig Harbor High, you look familiar as hell! I was noticing the background and thought it was Fox Island.

looks good...how much did that mesh cost u...it would have been like $50 for me to get that size.......does urs kinda fit inside the cab (so if your looking at it from the back either it doesnt fit the angle of the cab or the cab stickes out further?) if i build another one im going to make it go straight up and then angles in cause that will make it fit hte angle of the cab better...

well my friends dad runs a foundry and has a ton of spare metal and happened to have a huge sheet of that mesh that he just gave me its galvanized so i had to make sure not to breath in the fumes. i have to give the extra back though.

as for the angles, it fallows the angle of the cab so it leans in with the cab and it is angled forward slightly to match the cab.....if that makes any sense. ha i confused my self.

Awesome rack man. I really like how you made mounts to have rear facing lights. If I didn't use my rear window so much I would have me a rack.
