    I lost the bulkhead connector with my 75. Wish I would have just used it from the get-go. Oh well.

    I love overland builds.

    I put a Cobra 75 in my truck and am a little disappointed in the fact that no one else uses a CB unless they are on the trail. What Ham radio does everyone recommend?

    My group uses them the second we are in the trucks haha but CBs have just to short a range to be used for anything else.

    I have an icom 5100a as does my dad and he has a 51d handheld. Ham is fun. We can talk on the dstar network from across the country.

    Something that doesn't take away from head room under the shell. I'm thinking more use of storage in the back seat and a "cabinet" along the side of the bed.

    ahhh. my issue is sleeping in the bed its a pain in the a** if you have two people trying to sleep between the wheel wells. I wanted to raise up above that. I took the back seat out of my access cab and built a storage box there and have a lot of room now for activities haha. I want a place to store my air tank though and thought below the sleeping pad would be a great spot.

    Edit: I mean in the bed of coarse. Not he access cab back seat.

    I would recommend setting up a board on blocks at the height you plan to build the sleeping platform, then lay on it and try sitting up and what not. If I had done that, it would have saved me some woodwork. Plus it made it harder to get in and out of bed.
