    IT occurred to me that all I need is one center pole attached to the bed rail system and I could have a pretty cool tailgating setup. I have an 05DCLB and could probably even sleep in the bed on a good summer night. The pole would be holding up 1/2 of the ridge line of tarp take a lot of stress, so I would need the tent pole to be attached by more than one point on the rail system.

    Any suggestions on how I might be able to attach a tarp pole to the OEM bed rail system?
