Side mount on the truck bed

Made up some brackets that hold the bike rack on the side of the bed so that the back doors stay free to open and close. Just thought I would share.

I love the ingenuity, but my two concerns are wind noise and branches. Obviously you built this to work with your application, but I would be scared to drive to some of the trailheads we frequent with my bike on the side. Looks like good work though!

Wind noise is non-existent. Being behind the cab must be why, because when I had this rack on my WRX, it was very noisy. Can't hear a thing on the truck though. And no, I don't use this truck for serious offroad and haven't (yet) been to a trailhead where this would be an issue. But I can see where it would be if you were in a tight spot.
