Ok, first the disclaimers, I'm not a welder and I used left over old materials. You'll see some bolt holes all over this rack, cause it used to be a boat blind and that's just where it bolted together.. I've gotten some looks going down the highway with this , I don't know if it's because of the craftsmanship or it's a little different. Either way, it is the absolute best to I have on, in, or around. My mule.. Deer in the bed and gear on top equals clean gear.. It is also the same height as the roll cage in order to better facilitate carrying longer stuff, lime feeder legs..Anyways, here it is144831

Looks pretty cool man. I just built a deal in the bed of my Mule that doubles as bench seats or I can straddle my ice chest across the seats and still have the empty space in between the seats to put a deer.

yea pics suck,but every time i resize i always end up doing it 3 times as i step my way down to a usable size,so i just went tiny to start with..The red webbing is just elastic cord.Rather than fight a bunch of bungees I criss-crossed the cord and it can be moved around.I still use straps and bungees if I need to.I also haven't closed in the sides of the upper rack.I plan on using expanded metal to basically turn it into a basket up top and replace the plywood with aluminum.It still worked out VERY well this season.
