with a little experience in welding, you can make one very easily that will slide into a hitch, with smaller diameter PVC tubes cut down to hold the rods. have one i made for my old dodge dakota, working on getting a hitch put on my xterra so i can mount it on there.
maybe here? http://www.clubxterra.org/forums/sho...182#post263182 you're welcome hahaha but if you wrap the cord around the coat hangers and hook the bungee back on itself it will take out the slack. you can also zip tie the tips to the front oh shit handle to stop the bounce up front, that is what i do on long trips.

Bass Pro sells a strap that can be mounted in your rig it is not expensive and works really well. It keeps your rods separated and can be tightened to insure that your rods stay off your head. I have used them in my old SUV and my X and have been very happy with them. item # 38-394-338-00 Rod Saver Vehical Rod Holder. I hope this helps.
I've used an old shipping cardboard tube with duct tape to bring my freshwater rods back and forth between the Sierras in the Xterra and even on airliners to New Zealand. Hadn't thought about using PVC pipe before, but that would be a little more expensive and whole lot more sturdy. You could even thread just one end cap and fabricate some sort of removable mounting bolts.
I think I'll build one for my salt water surf rod so it's easier to store in the garage as well.
