Cool latest project--bike rack mount for Ram truck with cargo hatch

My friend Mike has one of the newer Ram pickups with the cargo pockets on the top of the bed. His bike rack doesn't work with the bike rack as there isn't any room for the lids to pivot.

After some serious brain storming ( smell smoke? ), we came up with a workable idea. The truck has the sliding cargo rails inside the bed. He gave me four of the sliding hold downs plus the bike mounts and I altered them to work.

Measured the hole distance between the plates and then drilled and tapped plus counterbored the top of the mount for brass tubing stand offs.

This should work just fine
