Bed Rails

Built some bed rails for my Teryx. They are stout and it would be nice if I had a tube bender, but since I don't, I went ahead and used 3/4 pipe since I had some in the shop. In the next day or so I will clean up the welds and finish them.

Well, they are textured and bolted into place.

Very nice, I like how solidly they look to attach better than any others I have seen.

Any chance of you selling a set?

Thanks. They do sit flat. I had notched the base to where the orginal fender mounting machine screws stay in place. They are stout and if anything is dropped onto them the force is spread out over a wider area lessening potential damage. I had not given any consideration to selling any though.

Those look nice. Garage projects are always fun. I wish I had more time to tinker-around.

For anyone who does not have the time or equipment to build their own bed rails, Thunderhawk offers bed rails for $99. Ours are longer in the rear, for a bit more protection.

Thunderhawk will also be giving away a set of our bed rails in an upcoming contest here at TeryxHQ. If anyone buys bed rails before the contest, and then wins the contest, we'll give you credit towards anything else that we handle.

Those look great, how did you attach them exactly? I've got a old style of aluminum bed rails for a truck, that I have looked at a couple times, but am not real sure how I would attach them.
