    First pic was hooked inside of bed top
    Second pic is Total bed cover

    Edit. Damn looks like my tape was crooked as hell lol

    Remeasured, bed cover is about 61 3/4” so tape wasn’t as crooked as I thought.

    Good convo on tents. I’ve been researching between CVT and Tepui. Haven’t decided yet. Like the taping off on floor idea. :thumbsup: Basically have it narrowed down to which one I’d go with on each. Like the idea of driving to TN to pick up vs. shipping.

    Tepui youd just pick up in ATL at REi.

    Yep but, didn’t see the one I was looking at on their website. I’m sure they can order it.

    Those are about the measurements I had taken on my truck bed plus the accounted width of your cover. So cool.

    On another note, Hobart puts cheap potentiometers in their machines for the feed speed control. Was wondering why I couldn't make a weld look any better than a booger. So my welder is currently out of business until I get the new part in. Didn't think my machine was cheap, but I guess everything is made in china these days.

    Nice and congrats to him. Looks like I may not be going to Montgomery after all for my daughters gymnastics state championship. She has had a cough for while and didn't feel to well over Thanksgiving break. Found out last night she has freaking pneumonia. Couldn't happen at a worse time for her. Good thing is, if she does miss the meet it won't hurt her competing for the other state meet in March. That one is more important and how you get on state team and compete in regionals.

    what dash cam do you have? I'm in the market for 2 of em. I've done some research and know which ones I "should" get, but budgets have a way of prioritizing other things for that extra money lol

    did you hardwire it, like for parking mode, or is it just for driving?

    The first one I had was similar to that, but it died pretty quickly due to heat killing the battery. You really want one that uses a capacitor in Alabama summer.
    Here's the one I got for a good starting point @mdbutler7 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M28B92C/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It's not going to read a license plate from very far, especially at night, but I don't really see how that would really change that much in an accident. It can easily see stop lights/signs, and that you're not doing crazy stuff with bad drivers hit you.

    thanks! This is actually the "cheaper" of the options I keep coming back to. I'm actually considering the A129 for dual channel

    From what I've read about the rexing is that even if the battery does flake out it will only lose saving the last clip if power is cut. It will still function fine just running off car battery. Only found 2 reviews of people killing them in less than a year.

    Time will tell though.
