Rod holders

Im not sure what kind of rods you're rolling with, but I have a Big Sky Sculpin waiting on my truck to arrive. It will accomodate my longer nymph rods (broken in half). I wanted something that would mount over the bed and not the whole truck. And when not fishing I can easily just take it out.
 
I had a rod basket on my 08. I put a front reciever on it. Worked great. Easy to put on and take off. If I was still shark fishing from the beach, I would do it to the Tremor.

Was wondering if anyone can suggest a good front end rod holder system or over bed fishing pole rack for the truck.Don’t see much out there or least can’t find..looking for something 6-8 poles..

Thanks
My buddy has the Rod Coffin on top of the cab and bed topper of his truck. He does remodeling so his covered bed is always full of work tools and materials. The Rod Coffin keeps his rods secure and organized. Here's the link!

 
Anybody have the winch installed and put the front receiver hitch on? I still have my surf basket just haven't got around to front receiver hitch install. Any issues?
Looking to see if anyone has added a front receiver to their truck. I added one to my old 2002 350 7.3 Powerstroke and am now looking to add one to my new Tremor.

These look like they will work - just wanted to see if anyone had any experience. My truck doesn't have the forward cameras or adaptive cruise sensors so I don't think there should be any issue.

Need to add storage capacity for summer road trips - generator box, camp gear, etc. Have typically stored it in the back of the cab but with a new baby the wife isn't so excited to have a generator next to the carseat.

Looks like either 12K winch or receiver. I'ma go with the the winch option and find another place for the rods.

Thread title doesn't match what I'm looking to do - I just responded to the only post on the forum where someone talked of adding a front receiver.

I'm looking for additional storage up front for a gas generator and camping gear on a luggage tray when we have the truck camper on the back for extended trips. Bikes will likely be stored off the rear hitch on an extension with a swing away bracket and a bike tray style rack.

Similar to this:

Both receivers are rated at 1,000 lbs. The "basket" would be the weak link, rated at 500 lbs, unless you get something built custom.

 
I'm planning to fabricate/ weld a tray using an old motorcycle hitch carrier as the foundation. I'll be building it to allow me to mount medium sized truck bed tool box for enclosed secure storage of the generator, camp chairs, etc.

Posted just looking for feedback on the addition of a front hitch receiver.

You may want to add some reinforcement on the hitch itself. I think that the receiver part can handle higher loads but the rest of the assembly does not because of the compact support base. If you are fab'ing up the carrier, I'm sure that you'll see what you need to do. You might be able to support the carrier on the bumper (at the ends) for more stability to avoid any rocking.

Also, keep in mind that the front end is a crumple zone, frame will bend to adsorb energy in frontal impact. I have no idea how much weight the frame can support vertically before it starts bending. 1,000 lbs get heavier the further out front it is and how fast your traveling and how bad is that bump... etc.
