I have two rods I want to carry inside my truck's cab... Before I just laid one rod across my folded up rear bench seat of my extended cab 2008 GMC Sierra... That has worked fine for as long as I only carried only 1 rod, but recently I bought another heavier rod... One rod is a two piece 9-1/2", and the other is a two piece 10' ... Both will barely fit cross ways in my cab... So this is what I did..


1st I bought a Attwood Vertical Mount Rod Holder... It is a well made product of heavy rubber that wont scratch the rods.. It could have a little more spacing between the rods, because with reels attached, you can't get more than 2-3 rods on it... But for my purpose, it was fine... I then bought a piece of Kadex (You gun guys use this for pistol holsters) from McMaster-Carr to mount it to... I cut it to size and bent to shape, before mounting the holder to it (It is easy to work with)... I then used a quick connect strap I re-purposed from an old suitcase clothing tie-down... I hooked one end of the straps to the child seat tie-down loops behind the truck seat headrest... Once disconnected from the rod holder, these could be flipped out of the way...

I hope this will be of some use to one of you fishermen/women-RVers..
