Make your own bike rack for your pickup truck. Without some type of rack in the bed of the truck, your bikes won’t be secure, and could be damaged as they slide and shift around while you drive. To hold your bike securely, a simple rack that you can build yourself is all that you need.
Measure the width of your truck bed at a spot 2 feet behind the front edge of the bed. Cut a piece of 1 x 10 inch lumber to 2 inches less than the measurement.
Insert a 1/2-inch lag bolt into each hole and screw it into the board using an adjustable wrench. Tighten the bolts until the board is tightly secured on the floor of the truck bed.
