Now that's what I call a rack!  Thanks for the pic, that's exactly the system I saw the other day.  I know they're adjustable, how are they mounted?  I've got an F15-0 Lariat and I'm thinking about this set up for my truck.

They are mounted just to the side rail. No drilled holes, just pressure bolts. Took 1/2 an hour to install.

Truck racks showed up Friday.Not as nice as the thule you have Ted but for the money they will do the job and I am able to remove them easily in order to keep my bed cover on most of the time.Definately going to be a pain mounting as even though their universal( nothing is really universal )it will take a little screwing with to insall but the posts appear to come out very easily.I will send some picks when complete.

Got the Racks on and had a good drive with them today.Easy to take off so worked the way I wanted.Wasn't easy getting them mounted but finnished in a couple of hours.Still need to sort something out as far as padding to protect hull.

Foamies will probably work just fine for ya..

I have a pair of these, and they fit over Ted`s Thule racks very easily.
