Squat Rack Suggestions in Canada

I'm looking to add a squat rack to my garage gym and I could use some suggestions. I'm in Canada as well so please keep that in mind when suggesting a product as well as the fact that it's a garage gym and space is scarce. I'm not looking to break the bank on this one so I'd like to stay under $500. Thanks.

Look up the treadmill factory, or again faster canada, or muscledriver canada. All have good equipment and warehouses in eastern canada, muscledriver would probably have the best rack. But I've had some service issues with MDCAN, so I'd suggest AF or TF both have great service and shipping.

Barry,

I have had the opposite experience with Matt at MDCAN. He has been awesome. Fastest shipping and great stuff. Been going back to him a bunch of times. If I was buying a rack though I would go Rogue for the bench spacing alone. The provide 1" increments whereas everyone else has 2" holes. That and the attachments. You can get spotter arms, a dip station and plate storage if you like. They are a tad bigger footprint though. I currently use a York Press Squat Stand. Bought locally and it does the job well.

Couple a 2x4's, 2 home depot pales, and some concrete. Cost you 50 bucks maybe. You can cut the 2x4's directly for the height you specifically want it at and screw one in the middle to bench with. Use the remainder 450 to buy stuff you can't make yourself.
