Introduction: Ford Ranger Regular Cab Gun Rack

couldnt find a rack that i could afford and would fit in my truck. so i made one. here is how i did it.

Step 1: Get the Stuff.

aluminum flat stock. (i used 3/4" wide, 1/8" thick) you will need about 3'. i bought 8' for $10.

Tape measure,

Marker

Pliers

Hacksaw

File

Step 2: Cut the Stock

all you need is a 14" peice for each. cut away with the hacksaw and file the cut end smooth.

Step 3:

measure 7" and create a 180 degree bend with about 1/2" space between the two ends.

Step 4:

with the remaining 7", bend a U shape big enough to hold your firearm of choice.

Step 5:

go inside the truck and pull back the liner behind the seats. (doesnt have to be much). you will see a series of slots. this is where the hook will sit.

Step 6: Install It!!

all you have to do is slide it into the slot and away you go. ( i used some weatherstripping as padding to protect the guns)
