Thanks to MC and others here that have posted your racks to give us all ideas.

Here is what I ended up with.

1 - 4' 12ga steel bar (hollow) - $10.98
2 - ebay brand blockhead mounts - $12
2 - M6 x 1.25" bolts - $1.00
4 - 1/4-20 x .5" bolts - $1.00
4 - 1/4-20 wingnuts - $1.00

Step 1 - Cut bar to length
Step 2 - Drill 2 thru holes at end for mounting 1.25" bolts
Step 3 - Drill 4 holes on top to pass thru .5" bolt
Step 4 - Drill bottom 4 holes larger to allow for head of bolt to pass through.
Step 5 - Assemble
Step 6 - Primer it and go :)

There's my $30 mount that I built during lunch. Its strong as hell and allows me to have my two bikes and two 12" subs in the truck at the same time :headbang:

Just thought I'd share ... as well as thank the guys here for the inpiration.

Jim
