Building this for Stevarino over on THF. It is aimed more at being used to move people more than to hunt out of, which is why we decided to put it down lower in the truck to get them out of the wind.

The Truck



Materials to mount the rack to the bed. It has to be removable because to get to the motor you have to take out a piece at the front of the bed.





I welded the washers and nuts onto the bottom flat bar to make it a little easier to get off and on:



Mounted up





Tacked up the main part of the seat and part of the footrests:

Most are small compared to me, it's just a habit. I called 7 mag over on thf boy once and he lost his mind. Apparently some folks think that is a racial comment. bigwill

Ram is the guy who tried to hijack Larry's thread about the mesmerizing high rack in the bed of the Ford.

The ladder was a little tricky, had to be removable so that the side could fold down on the bed relatively easily. It didn't help that my bandsaw blade took a dump, had to finish it with the chopsaw which is a pain in the azz when trying to mitre cut.
