    I am in a gift swap with relatives this year. Around $50 is the spending limit. What would my stock 2011 DC SB AT SR5 4x4 want to see most under the tree on Christmas morning?
    Ideas please, and don't say a tank of gas, even though that is not a bad idea.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the ideas so far. I like the popnlock idea. If you get a tonneau cover, do those effectively lock the box or would you need the cover and the popnlock for a "secure" setup?

    I used mine with a cover but it also helps with the hose clamp mod so no one takes your tailgate. Add a cover & it keeps everything out of sight. Granted they can still stick a knife through the vinyl but your tailgate will still be there.

    Depends on the tonneau, but in most cases you need both.

    recovery strap if you off road
    nice set of bungie cords
    some good tie downs
    d rings
    heck
    maybe a small flashlight as part of it?
    or a work light of some sort
    bed lights are fun and very useful
    i can think of a million things,
    really depends on what you want?

    By D-rings do you mean so that the front bed mounting bolts would have d-rings like the rears? Good recovery strap is not bad, I have a harbor freight one right now.

    Anybody know of a decent CB for $50? I have not had one since high school, but that might be fun.

    you couldn't get they whole set up for 50 bucks..
    I have one but never really use the radio part of it... I like having a PA tho.. I did it as cheap as I could and it probably ended up around 150 or 200 for wire / antenna / speaker / radio
