I would have one that is over the bed and the top is level with the roof. 6-8 inches deep.

the ONLY downside to that, is my truck gets a foot taller..
it'll still fit in the garage at home, so no biggie. hopefully the tubing isnt too heavy so it doesnt get much more top heavy..

You mean you have done the "Bigger garage door" mod yet. It's easy as pie, all you need is a sawzall and a new door.


I'd raise it to a 12' door if it were me. Ya never know next time around you just may have that 350 dually on 44's you've been eyeing up.

i agree. almost looks like an alien space ship thats about to lift the truck into the air.
if it sat lower i'd like it.

looking at a surco rack sold from summit also..
thats a last resort.

I'd do one that could be folded out and so i could put a tarp over it and it doubles as shade.
