Productive day.

Built a drawer/ table under my sleeping platform. Still need the adjustable paint poles that I'm going to use as legs



I also mounted my switches for my roof rack lights. Still waiting on them so I can wire them up.



And I changed out the daystar switch I had for my led bar for this one

just plywood and 2x2 cut down to size to fit under there. It's a little to short I just made it out of what i had left laying around. I might make a longer one tho,I still have like 2 feet of room to the end of the head of the bed. Still need some expandable poles to act as legs to finish off the build.

Re: paint poles for legs:
Think about the intended use for paint poles, in particular the amount of weight they are designed to deal with. No paint pole in the world could hold more than maybe ten pounds at its outer limit.
If you plan on putting the weight of a person on the drawer, you should consider a weight rating of at least 300 pounds. Perhaps some drop-down dimensional lumber or steel tube. If you really need height adjustability (say, camping on uneven ground), just shim it with wood blocks, rocks, wrenches, logs, floor mats, or whatever else is available, easy, and can be multipurpose.

That drawer is only going to be used to hold chairs and what not. Then when flipped over its just a table to set up for the cooking stuff. It prob won't have more than 40 lbs on it and the one side will always be supported by the tail gate. So to clear this up the drawer is just a table flipped upside down it doesn't need to hold the weight of a person. I might re do it this weekend with a longer piece of plywood. This is where I got the idea

Ya thanks, that's all I really need them for. I don't need them to light up 200ft away just around my truck at night after looking at the pics of your truck that's when I made my decision to go with those

Did this to mine a while back and the left right & rear lights are the most useful mod I've ever seen. You won't realize how nice they are till you have em
