    Truck Bed

    The first round of ordering done, but not yet installed (waiting for delivery)

    Really spent a lot of time researching bed solutions:

    Tonneau Cover
    Security of the bed and weather resistance was important along with some rugged good looks. The Diamond Back SE should meet my needs well. The HD was also available but I didn't need the added weight capacity for top loading.

    Adding @CaliRaised Bed Stiffeners, just because.

    Security
    To keep the bed secure, will be installing Pop & Lock

    Sound Deadening
    To quiet it down a little, I'll be adding grommets to the mounting locations and also installing sound deadening material. Not sure if that will help, but based on feedback it's worth a shot to lessen what I'd call unnecessarily loud action of the servo.

    Lastly, will be adding Toyota Bed Mat.

    Where you able to provide any sound dampening for the Pop& Lock kit? I have seen some videos and it seems really loud to me.

    I started this thread when I finished oredering the stuff. In the interim I’ve been out of town, so I expect to start tackling the install of all the new arrivals by the weekend.

    I plan to use grommets where to motor/servo mounts, and sound deadening material for a one-two punch!
