    As the title says I'm thinking of building a roof rack/basket for my truck and I am mainly looking for help on where to buy materials in the Phoenix metro area. Are there steel suppliers you other AZ guys like to deal with? Does anyone have an affordable pipe bender they could recommend?

    I'm currently thinking of building the rack/basket out of different diameters of steel pipe/tube. I like the looks of the Smittybuilt Defender Rack roof baskets and would like to build something similar. Thanks for any help.

    Yes, like that, except just over the cab of the truck.
