Title: Rod Racks Rebuilt
Post by: FM on July 31, 2015, 02:52:31 PM
Back in the 90's I lived at the Jersey shore. One block from the beach! It was a great time of my life, really carefree, funded, with lots of time off. I spent months of days every year fishing fresh and salt water, nothing like the current life I lead. At any rate, I dug up my old rod rack that was on my ford ranger and rebuilt it for an up coming trip to VA. Can't wait to load it up and hit the surf!!!

You could make one with PVC and a piece of the box steel I got at Lowes. 36 inch piece of steel cut in half. Really all I had to work with were the PVC pieces, you could cut your own and make the channel for the reel stem to fit into, or not. Easy build. I just pulled out the license plate holders and put the main mounting bolts thru there. It won't hold up doing 75 mph with my 11 footers in it like the mount I had on my Ranger but for putting around the beach it will be fine.

Yeah definitely  smarter to make your own . They charge a arm and a leg to buy one .
