      Although this isn't really for my truck, I thought it might be interesting for some of you, or a least the Canadians... I used my harbor freight pipe bender and some scrap fence posts to build a hockey goal. I built it to exact NHL dimensions and got a not very cheap, but very heavy duty net to use on it from http://www.arizonasportsequipment.com/

      The post and crossbar are 2" and everything else is 1.5".

      looks good, just don't forget to put some weight on the back bars that go around the back of the net or it will fall on the goalie alot,,

      thanks guys... oh it is plenty heavy enough in back (extends back 44", but is only 50" high) so it won't tip over.... here it is with the net on and we used it a bit this morning but water kept coming through the cracks in the thin ice around the edges so we couldn't stay out too long
