Strain, do you take the highrack on and off, or do you leave it on the truck. I'm trying to figure out a way to make one easy to put on and off and leave the tool box on the truck.

The railing part slides off. The platform stays on. Railing slides in to the platform pretty easy and simple.

So the main part of the rack stays on the truck. I'm trying to figure a way to make it quick removal but yet keep the toolbox on. About all that I can come up with doesn't seem too stout or would be a pain to put on and off.

Yes. I keep the main part on and remove the top part. I bolted main part on to the truck. It is stout...very heavy duty. Easy and fast to put on the railing.

Years ago at the Texas Shootout I saw a couple of guys that had built elevated stands for their ATV's (4 wheelers). They were pretty neat looking and laid down for when the ATV was moving. Anybody ever seen anything like this? Pics? I wish I would have had a camera with me!

I'm thinking about a diy lightweight set up. Any body ever used scaffolding as the stand?

Looks like a great storage rack under the high rack. Im guessing that makes install and removals easy if that's what its for.

Started building a rack for my rhino today. We have places that we can't get to if it rains so I decided to build a calling rack for the rhino. I'll get pics later I was in a hurry to get out of the cold shop.

I want to make one (or buy one) that is portable.. meaning I can slide it in and out of my Avalanche bed... use tie down straps..
Got a couple of good ideas from here and our permo-high rack trucks at the ranch..... nothing too fancy....

Bringing this back up for the high rack guys.

I am going to build one for the back of our 1500. It will live at the ranch and be removable.

Any idea on how much weight we can put in the bed without having to beef up the suspension???
