    Nope, that's why it's supposedly. I sent them an email Friday afternoon asking for the tracking number. We shall see.

    Ok friends and neighbors, I need ideas for storage and or mounting of stuff and things. IMG_0474.jpgBig ass first aid kit. It used to live behind one of the seats but with 2 car seats know it became to difficult retrieving anything from back there. Currently half stuffed under drivers seat. Won't fit all the way under.
    IMG_0475.jpg Things in this pic, 3 ton come along,overly large air compressor(will some day be replaced by under hood something), big blue box o' recovery stuff (shovel, machete, pry bar, shackles, snatch blocks), behind the box- axe, bow saw. Couple hundred feet of rope.

    The little cubbyholes in bed are full, tie downs, more shackles.

    I live in the city, I work in the city, so nothing can be left outside of vehicle. That's partly why I have been i a big hurry to install my roof rack or build high clearance with swingout.

    Ready.....go!

    How about a regular or 50 cal ammo can for storage? Small moveable, could be a rack system and they can be modified to lock them if they don't have it built in?

    I've seen a couple folks with them mounted on the bed rails. I like it for sure. I've been kicking around the idea of a internal bed rack. Something to get more mounting options but strength the roof of canopy as well.

    They have a smaller one as well. You can find both at Harbour Freight I think.

    Better pack up the wife and kids then. I doubt we will see one anytime soon. Even with the ranger coming back, I don't think Ford will bring the diesel with it so Toyota only has the chevy to contend with. I think manufacturers are scared of getting VeeDubbed.

    I'll probably end up in a full size diesel down the road.

    I was considering a Full size diesel before I got my Taco. I test drove a few and liked them, but I just couldn't justify the size of them. Even with 2 kids and 4 dogs. I used to drive a '91 F250 but it was a regular cab. The RC days are long gone now.
