    Somewhere shortly after this picture I found TW and started derping...badges and wheels

    Found an elusive con-ferr rack on CL for $50 and I couldn't pass it up...

    So I added LED bed lights,

    Nice truck man! Are your MAXSA boards mounted to the basket or your factory roof rails?

    Nice truck!

    I have a Softopper and am in the process of building a platform in the bed similar to yours. Most people split the plywood deck vertically, however, I'm going horizontal like yours. I ran into the problem of not being able to remove the board from the bed with the topper on due to the bracket system on the railing.

    Did you run into this?

    The board closest to the cab I don't remove and the one near the tailgate I just slide forward on top of the other one. If I needed to remove the tailgate board I can pick one side up and take it out in an angle. My support for the board closest to the cab is two 2x8 seperated in the middle with cut outs for a 1x6. Support of the tailgate board is another 2x8 that slides in between the other 2x8's. It has a notch to also fit a second 1x6. Idk if that makes sense. I like that fact that I can move the tailgate board so I can easily load my cooler and firewood.
