Default Diamond plated bed protection

I use my ranger a lil harder than your average ranger owner so I had to make some armor. Since no one makes hardly anything for real bed protection for the ranger i had to make my own.

I started out w Back Racks Safety Rack and made my own things from that. I mimicked the safety racks mounting brackets for my tube rails. Then i had a friend of mine with a huge brake and shear do some wonders w 1/8" diamond plate. Had a pair of bed caps, front bed protector and tailgate protector made. Once i put my new tailgate on i will mount the gate protector. On to the pics......

I agree, that is some great stuff! I like it a lot. I've been thinking about making some rails myself.
