I was thinking to strap the posts down from inside the box!
I think you're right, the only style I've seen comes back around the inside of the rails. You might want to go with a lighter rack that spans the entire bed (both rails). That should give you the structural strength and load security you're looking for. I would imagine that it will look more 'balanced' as well.
