    whats up guys i just wanted to share that i added 2 small locks to one of the small storage comp. in the back of the bed...dont know if anyone else cares about it but it was real easy..just went to the home depo and got 2 5/8in long desk drawer locks that came with different size arms, had to use the longer one and bend it a little to fit the slot in the compartment...had to drll out the stock whole a little on the door to get the lock to fit snug..the lock comes with a nut to back down and tighted it in the whole but i couldnt get it started...its in there tight already but i think im going to put some epoxy or jb weld on the back to help keep them in there... what do yall think..

    if there is room for several hundred oil threads, we definitely have room for good DIY posts that may or may not be repeats.

    Thanks for posting.
