1 day project (rear rack)

i had some extra square tubing i was about to throw away and then i started thinking i could making somthing outta it so 2 days of thinking i realized i can use a rack to put stuff on (i know this is only good for street i will take this off when i go off roading dont worry)
just had a day off so i made this. i also cut off the 12" tail i had on it that was just the length of the tube and didnt wanna cut til until i got gas for my plasma cutter

I don't know how to weld but my first learning project will be something similar.

I want but the part of the golf cart that holds the clubs from the local cart company. Then I'll weld that up to some similar tubing as you used.

Good creativity, man. Looks like a very useful build, especially since you were going to throw out the tubing anyway.

i think ima make another one out of angle iron so its not so heavy but im goign to use a little bit thicker gauge bottom floor part but the holes are bigger to the weight should even out but the square tube is heavy stuff would be good if i had a 6cyld. but by using angle iron i can also eliminate the brackets on the bottom that hold the floor ill get some picutres when i build it and give you guys a weight diffrence

howmuch that end up costing ya? how much weight it hold? 500LBS? I bought one for mine that hold my (4) 33's, tools and floor jack. I put the factory Jeep lights on it cause it's wider than the Jeep and my tires almost cover the tail lights in my tub. I'l post a pic later if ya wana see it.

Great work on that, I built one with angle about 20 years ago and used it on the back of my Blazer, I have used it on my jeep for some sight seeing trips. I now use it in the receiver on the front of my F350 crew cab to haul my generator when I go camping.
