Might be pretty cool....use big pieces of 1/4" to fill the gap between widths. I'm sure your plans are to make it cover the entire cab like yours, but set out from the bedrail. Alot like one of those lumbar racks for a truck with a canopy. I definately like the idea.

im thinking about building a new one...this time ill make it go straight up for about 3 inches to bring it moar outside the cab of the truck (the flat part of the rails is farther in than the cab so it looks weird i think...it doesn't stick out as far as the cab on the sides) and make it fit the angle of the cab better and also lean it in some so it matches that angle better to. also im planning on bed lining it so its easier to touch up and maby holds up better..what do u think...it will probably be a while before i do it but im just brainstorming out loud.
