    @Motofox the last three years I had a BAMF bed rack, a set of bed bars, and now a custom bed rack. I must say I like the bed bars. I could weld or bolt plates for mounting points on it and it wouldn’t hurt the wallet.

    I love how easily it is to reach into the bed and grab what I need with bed racks.

    I dislike how dust and dirt gets all over the place. I also dislike the fact that I can’t just pull into a casino or a place to eat on the way home after a trip and have to worry about thieves.

    I have considered and might go the route of a camper shell with a rack and a second roof rack.

    a lot of trials and $ so far.

    but damn it is so much fun!

    I've been a fan of my tonneau and bed rack for dust and security reasons.

    Hey guys, been lurking for a bit but picked up a 1st gen double cab last week so will be more active. I’m out in Livermore just wondering if anyone has recs on shops in the area. I do the typical maintenance myself but would like to know where to go when the time comes. Been told about shaffers in alameda but just curious where everyone takes their truck around here

    i found a ‘low-gloss’ black paint at Napa thats in between matte and semi-gloss that works well. Used it in my wheel wells when I pulled the liners/hammered back the pinch welds. I’ll see if I still have a can and post a picture.

    I use that home depot gloss black. A buck a can. Once it gets muddy the gloss wears off.


    Might not work for you sam, since it just sits in the driveway. You will have one shiny ass undercarriage :crapstorm:

    This is my first time doing sous vide. We'll see how it goes.

    It's a nice machine. It'll heat up to 8 gallons of water.

    I have a pretty nice vacuum sealer too.

    For whatever reason the only place I could find it is an office supply place.

    it’s only $750.
    The vacuum sealer is $3700, I think.

    I'm thinking about buying a little sous vide machine and drilling a hole into a cheap cooler and running it off the inverter in my camper.
    It would be nice to toss some ribeyes in there when I leave work on a Friday and just have to sear or grill them when I get to a campsite.

    I've also though about making one with water heater heating element and a plug in temp controller and maybe a bucket/cooler like you said. I made a plug in controller for controlling a chest freezer temp so I can ferment beer in it then use it as a kegerator, its pretty straight forward.

    I've brought steaks to camp have have been pre-sous-vide at home. After a few tries, I found that it's best if you unseal the steak from the original vacuum seal and re-seal again for transport.
