Sleeping Platform

Just got back from Afghanistan and, after a weekend relaxing with the family, jumped into building a sleeping platform. Probably took a total of eight hours, some of which included putting together a saw and finding tools in the garage since I'd been gone.
Made a mistake in measuring the top because I didn't account for the side pockets or added width for the carpet being folded over the sides. Ended up trimming about a half-inch off all sides of the middle panels and hatches to fit.
Also added two cross beams at the center. One on the driver side is thirty inches from the tailgate; on the passenger side it's forty-eight inches.
Thanks to Hatch017, Pugga, Deeznutz and Wicked2007 for design ideas.
Getting the topper tomorrow, post more pics then.

Pics with Topper

I promised this weeks ago but never posted the pics. Sorry for the lack of follow through, but here's the pics of the truck with the topper. It's A.R.E. CX series with Yakima control rack, dome light and 4' light rope, fishing rod holder and front tilt down/sliding window. Purchased and installed at Suburban Toppers in Denver. Awesome customer service, did everything they could to keep the cost as low as possible and worked with me since I was trying to order from overseas.

Its fast, sturdy and best of all CHEAP!
