    How do you like the truck bed tents? Do you have to put all your gear in the cab overnight?

    I cant speak for him, but I am planning on picking up a bed tent and also picked up one of these to start with. Holds all my current gear is lockable and decently weather resistant. Ties down in my bed with 2 15 inch bungees, when I get to camp I can just leave it on the ground or in the cab if really need be. The added bonus is it gives me a gear storage option at home stashed in the guest room closet.

    I also cant speak for the other person, but I got the rightline tent, its a open bottom tent so I dont need to pack up all my stuff when I move, just put the tonneau cover over it. But the tonneau cover can act as a shelf if folded down 1-2 parts. Alternately, with a open bottom tent I can build a platform and my gear can fit under the mattress.

    Oh, nice!! I always assumed they have a bottom. But why should they, when you've got a composite platform, capable of holding 1,500lbs, supported by a shock-absorbing steel frame with rubber insulative shoes, right there.

    The Rightline does not have a tub so it still gives you access to have stuff in the bed. The ProZ and Napier Sport Z have tubs which eliminates that option.

    biggest questions I have come up with is other than the Napier Sport Z the other options all seem to be for a 6 foot bed not the short box, but I see a lot of guys still using them so I am assuming it is not a big deal fitment wise?

    Yeah, had to put it all in the truck overnight - or use the bear boxes available at some of the camp sites.

    I don't camp much so I don't have much to compare it to but I thought it worked pretty well. The wheel wells make it a little awkward to set up but 2 of us fit in there comfortably and I was able to set up and break down pretty quickly by myself.

    It appears to be a 1981 Hilux SR5 4x4 Longbed, judging from the tailgate font that is larger than what is found on the 1982 or this 1983.

    I didn't get a chance to chat with the owner unfortunately but here is one more shot nonetheless ... pretty cool that a 38-year-old truck like that is still roaming across rough terrain.



    This pic is also a nice illustration of tire sizes ... the Hilux on 31"s, my truck on 33"s and the 80 Series Cruiser on 35"s ...

    They are the OEM Steel Wheels off of the base model FJ ... I got six of them used for $30 each out of the boneyard behind my local tire store ... had them powder-coated for $55 apiece. Not bad considering that I was able to sell my stock TRD wheels, tires and spare with 19K miles on them for just under a grand. I will note however that I did take a significant mileage hit, as they are nearly double the weight of newer alloys. Can really feel the increased inertia of the rotational mass when I'm taking off in 1st ... also more reluctant to stop. I get more comments on the wheels though than any other aspect of the build, so there is that!

    If Inferno wasn't a thing, that QS would be my truck. It just looks so good. Nice pics man. Guessing that bed rack is a one off? Custom?

    Thank you! Inferno was on my shortlist as well ... the bed rack is the older version of the All Pro Expedition Pack Rack, which apparently is only sold as weld-it-yourself kit now.
