You are correct that I have 2 bikes on there now. I am pretty sure I could squeeze 3 on there which I intend to do. For a platform style rack like I chose, 4 bikes would have to be raised over the cab on a shortbed. Most of the hanging style racks seem to squeeze the bikes much closer together though and would probably allow 4 on a shortbed.

heres a link to my build
Pin Box Bike Rack...There are many like it, but this one is mine!

during my research I found these 2 pics (probably here on FRF) of a 4 bike rack on what I'm pretty sure is a shortbed Ford.

Has the "diesel smile" worn off yet or is it still plastered on your face?
Nice ride!
