    Hey guys, thought I'd share my install in case anyone else is thinking of investing in the Snowman mod.

    First off, gather the required parts in your truck bed and then build from there. If you fab before mounting (not recommended), then you'll need a high lift and/or a few buddies to help install it afterwards.

    A good foundation packed from the base of the mod to the edges of your bed will keep it from sliding around. It worked for me on level roads with a short commute. But if you're looking for something more stable/resilient, I would suggest constructing some sort of framework first. Connecting it to tiedowns might not be a bad idea either.

    Once it's installed, make sure to add your own personal touches. I used some old sunglasses, branches, and the center of a tape roll.

    And of course, prepare for friendly honks and happy smiles as you cruise past surprised onlookers ;)

    I'll try to get close-ups next time in case anyone needs more detailed installation instructions.

    Throwback to when we used to get snow in Utah. Good memories.

    I wish I could do this mod but the south-eastern NC natural weather laws do not allow more than 2" of snow per snowfall.
