    It’s these cans, also look for the Hondo Garage t nuts, they work best and are aluminum, just need a set of 4 and 4 bolts, maybe washers

    Cheap spacers and blocks, 33's, poor man upgrades.

    There’s all different sizes and quality. I wanted black, dual lockable and fit exactly on top of the wheel wells.

    Buy whatever you want.

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I like that! I was looking at something similar, but I need it to be deep enough to put a chainsaw in. Although I do like how you have the area under the box. With my box, a short bed becomes a really short bed.:rolleyes:

    Here is a link to a video from iggy at vagabond. It doesnt come with the top plate unless they know how your gonna install it, meaning location/etc. I built my own out of plywood. Painted and covered with a rubber mat. Took me a cpl hrs and some filing/trimming to get it to fit tight

    Pics in my truck I have a few but the file extension oddly isn't accepted here? See if I can get them to work

    IMO at that price, buy a Pelican. A 1620 will hold the Yeti inside it, has a very proven track record, and costs less. Plus it has wheels.

    How much does all of this weigh? I don't have all the drawers and wedge camper or a large water tank and I'm riding pretty damn heavy. Too heavy in my opinion. I have HD Dakar with an add-a-leaf and it's not enough for my setup. I would think this setup is quite a bit heavier than mine.

    about the same as the decked system, better storage options and you can fit more. I had the decked as well, hated everything about it. Looked good on paper. Everything I had in there was swallowed up by the storage boxes. No matter what you do with the taco's if you add anything to them to make them more off road worthy they are heavy and you will be overwight quickly. Two people and a full tank off gas and you are damn near 50% of the payload.

    THE HD dakars need to go, they are not fit for much of anything besides an empty stock rig.

    And yes I agree, the truck is heavy. THe camper is 350'ish, storage is 200'ish. then whatever else you add on. One of the reasons I am looking to move back to a larger rig.

    Yea, I haven't been happy with them. I'm gonna deal with them until I have time/money to do a Chevy 63 swap.

    Two 1/2" holes 43 mm below the rim of the can. Drill/tap two pieces of aluminum bar to go in the rail. Two 1" M12 bolts, two washers. Good enough for the girls I go out with.

    I was going to say it better come with a missile inside for that price. All those latches would be a PITA too.
