If I got a fridge, there is ways to put it in with the sleeping platform. and storage? Sure, as long as I'm single, I can fill up one side with gear. I do have quite a bit of storage in the nooks and crannies, like behind the seats and under the platform. I love my rig. and 3 points of access is enough for me. It's a hard shell, and pretty neat.

Tools and stuff doesn't take much space, I pack light. Wouldn't be hard to fit a week's worth of stuff and such. I haven't done drawers to my set up yet, just some plastic bins, right now. Need to go through and organize all that before my five day trip with you guys. Gonna need a cooler, and that's the biggest space taker. I will have my chainsaw too.

Ever since summer started, I just wanna wheel or hike or whatever, don't want to work on the truck, I wanna use it!
I do as much of my modding as possible during the winter. The summer is for playing.

Wait a second...

Mark..where is the tire mount??
Wasn't it right on top there next to the bins? I didn't see studs to mount on but probably just strapping it down.

haha i'm working on it! bed rack 1.0 was a little....... over ambitious. 2.0 will get a redesign. biggest obstacle is the spare tire and where to put it so i can still put the dirt bike in the bed and not completely remove the rack and tire. though, i may be trying to make everything work together when it is clearly just going to shit on my dreams.


unless Travis is an ordained minister and married me to a russian hooker...... i haz no wife.


the girlfriend however cannot come because she can't get the time off work.

oh well, i have a few ideas. i've got enough steel left over to throw together a lower bed rack before this shindig gets underway if i want to.

all of these ideas include a trailer though...... bummer. i guess i'm going to be forced to build a trailer

Yes I know my bed rack is high, and I'm not happy with it. But...that's the way it had to be in order to fit it over the softopper. It's going to get redesigned when I get back from this trip, or I'll just have another one custom built.

I'm still debating if I'm going to use that bed rack & softopper combo for this trip, or if I'm going to be using my Box Rocket bedrack. Decisions....decisions

I know the dude - he's the one who just sold it to buy an LC... MapleMoose knows him too - mentioned him a while back. He does the retrofits himself, on the headlights - has a business.

If you were thinking of having the soft topper to keep things dry you don't have to worry. We typically don't see much rain in July and August. And you're really not gaining any security by keeping your things under the canvas. Plus think of how much your gas mileage is going to suck with that RTT above the cab. And how has that affected your center of gravity?
