    I need a big cardboard box (approximately 6'6" feet long, 3' wide, and at least a foot deep) for shipping back the Supertop that ripped off my truck at 70 MPH. If you're in the East Valley and have a mattress box or something I could stick this thing in I'd really, really appreciate it. Obviously it doesn't have to be those exact dimensions, I just need to have everything packed together in a box for them.

    After talking to my retailer (PCS Custom Automotive) and the manufacturer (Bestop), they're willing to warranty it. Problem is, I need to get it back to them, and I can't find something that size for sale anywhere (tried OfficeMax, the UPS store, post office, etc.) and I've called a few places like Lowes Home Depot but everyone bails their boxes for credit so they can't give me anything.

    Thanks guys :)

    What about going to Uhaul and getting one of those heavy matress bags? Does it have to be a cardboard box? If so, you might be able to duct tape a few boxes together to get the exact dimensions you need.

    It definitely has to be in a box. UPS won't pick it up unless it's in a sturdy package.

    I'll give that a shot next! Thanks!
