    Sometime back in November I purchased a shell.

    After much debate I settled on the ARE MX series.
    Found this one posted by another member here on TW.

    IMG_0125.jpg

    Naturally I couldn't have an empty truck bed...time for a drawer system.

    After 2 5x5 sheets of 1/2" Baltic Birch, one section of 3/4" Baltic Birch, a bucket-o-screws and some help from @Tsumara this was born.

    After adding a shell and drawer system the pounds started to add up, resulting in a serious bro-lean.
    Needing some assistance with the ass-end I added a set of Wheelers 3-leaf Progressive AALs....what a difference it made.

    Many thanks to @Tsumara for the assistance.

    So my OEM battery started to give out....you know what that means.

    Upgrade time!

    Out with the old, in with the Odyssey 34R.

    Also started working on a track system for the camper shell.

    Complimentary teaser pic...

    Sorry for the delay. I somehow missed your post.

    Lights arrived without issue.
    Have yet to permanently mount them.

    It's next on the list.

    Since the addition of the Plano cases, theft has been a concern of mine.
    Yes, the cases are locked and bolted to the crossbars.
    However, all one has to do is unbolt the crossbars and take the hole package.

    Que the security head bolts.
    Ordered these from McMaster Carr.

    1/4-20 x 1" Spanner head bolt.

    There are other options but I felt these would be my best bet.
    Replaced every other bolt on the Prinsu crossbars.

    Here is a link for the tamper resistant hardware.

    Be forewarned...McMaster can take your money faster than this place.

    This is a great idea, I'm thinking about starting to use tamperproof hardware for anything that can be removed in less than about 30 minutes or so (so basically everything but bumper).
