    Okay we'll I am building my own bed rack going to be making mounts for highlight, shovel, spare tire and Jerry can mounts all mounted inside becAuse I also want to be able to have the option to run a canvas top on it also for camping, carrying my dog in the back, ect.. Anyways this leads to my question I am wanting a canvas or whatever the material the military uses on there trucks I do not know what it is called and also trying to find where I could get it? Anyone have any tips or past experience?

    Still working on the rack but this is where I am at made temp. Brackets to get it home today and see how it looked its not perfect but only 30 bucks in the hole so far..

    Check online or go to a fabric shop. Im sure its out there you just got to ask the right person. Ive considered getting a premade one like what your doing but it would be mostly for winter to keep the snow out of my bed. and be able to take the dogs places, Of course id find a way to heat the bed... Shit now you got me thinking haha

    My main reason is for a quick tent when camping reason after that is for the dog she rides with me most of the time but when truck is full she has to go in the back and it scares me knowing she could jump even though I know she won't... I have been looking online but I guess I'm not wording it right because I'm not finding it.. I can find canvas but looking for the surplus canvas from one of the trucks j want the real shit :p
