Back Rack

I have an 07 Supercrew 4x4 with a 5.5ft bed. I was looking at getting a Back Rack for it, but i have heard that model requires drilling to install. Does anyone know if that is true? And if so, how extensive is the drilling. i don't like the idea of creating rust spots, lol.

I think all of the racks you see on the market will involve drilling and through bolting. I don't know of another way of securing a rack that can support some realistically usable weight. You wouldn't want that rack to come loose with half a lift of plywood on it.

the only things holding you back are fear and common sense

You should be able to install the no drill bracket and install the headache rack without any problem, I found this blog useful take a look at it.
