Default Truck trimmer racks

I hear a lot of talk about trimmer racks but not much about ones that can attach to the bed rails. Does anyone know of a manufacture that makes one like this?

For me this would be more convenient since I dont always bring the trailer for brush clearing and what not. I end up throwing them in the back of the truck and this isnt the most secure thing to do.

I use Jungle Jim racks. I took some 2"x2" angle and welded 1"x2" tube where my stake pockets are then bolded the racks through the tube and the bed rail.

Hopefully this picture will explain what I mean..

Yes the square tube is welded like a "T". I will get some better pictures of it tomorrow.

The thing on the tailgate is a folding ramp. I use it to load my mower on days I don't need the trailer.

I found a slightly better picture of the rails. I removed one side of mounts because I rarely use the edger and I stupidly bent one of the trimmer rack mounts.

Found these while looking at some trimmer racks. Thought you might be able to use them.

I already figured out how I'm going to mount them. The only problem is its in the way of a ladder rack. I might make a ladder rack that goes on 1 side to solve this.
