What kind of rack is it?

You could come at her with "I want to build it with YOU"

You can teach her to weld... I think a woman that can weld is HOT!!!

she doesnt know about the rack im building yet, ive thought about maybe completing it, and later on swapping it out, or if i had to, putting it into her truck claiming i was building it for her all along....

Modify the rack she bought you to your liking, and scrap the rest of the one you were building.

Then buy her a new rack :postwhore2:

(ie. theres no way in hell im gonna scrap something ive been working on for the past couple days not after the work ive put into it!)

Finish the rack your building, paint it up nice. Then get it engraved & put it on her truck! She'll love it because you built it for her! :D

Yea i think shed be upset if i told her i didnt want it. unfortunately i dont know if my rack will fit her dodge?? i measured it pretty close so it wouldnt be seen around the cab of the truck or over it. i think her trucks bed is mounted a little higher. Well try and see.

heres a pic of my headache rack, still incomplete but with how much work ive put into it i dont wanna just quit! maybe i can get her to buy the rest of the lights for it, and put the other rack on her truck!

headache rack pics

I took a couple ideas from coope3 i really liked his style but im not a fan of the sheet metal wrap and wanted more red led's also like i said i dont want it to be seen around the truck so i changed a couple of things.

Looks good, lots of lights are good. What part of my rack is the sheet metal you are talking about.

I was talking about the flat steel across the top I wanted more support

Yea cutting the holes was a bitch I did it the easy way with a mill and a bandsaw in my grandfathers machine shop.... Actually I take that back even with the shop those holes were a pain.
