Default Truck bed rod holder

I don't like my rods laying in the bed so I improved on an idea I had last year. Helps when hauling kayaks

One load bar from Amazon 23 bucks and 4 dollars on emt pipe hangers from lowes. Might get fancy and paint the pvc. Much cheaper than the 170 bucks I copied the idea from. Bar adjusts from 40-70" so it'll work in both the taco and a full size truck

That takes all the fun out of untangling them when you get to the lake!

Bloody brilliant! I like it much better than the PVC rack I had built and subsequently cut into pieces because I hated it.
