    I bought mine on Amazon. Just search for "Drop Stop" or "As Seen on TV Drop Stop". They actually blend in really well once you smoosh them down in between the seats more. They also slide with seats forward/backward no problem. I think they were $20 for two.

    Somewhat last minute plans for a combined road trip/camping adventure just arose last week; leaving this coming Friday, two week trip in total. Scrambling the get my truck in order. GFC arrived in December, did not get a chance to put it to use yet! Installed Dometic fridge (CFX3 45), Jackery 500, and these LED lights from Amazon. Don't have time permanently mount the fridge yet, but it is quite solidly tied down with these straps and these ratchet straps. LED lights are really cool, but I was surprise to see they are pulling 35 watts (on DC)! I thought LEDs were very low on power usage?

    Cheers,
    DJM

    Last evening, getting things in order. 100W portable solar panel arriving today. I've tested the fridge and got a full 48 hours of 39F cooling with still 30% left on the Jackery 500; granted I did not go in/out of tjhe fridge in that time, but 2 full days with no recharging is impressive. Between the in-bed power inverter and the solar panel, I'll have no problem with power for an extended period of time. Fridge + battery + solar was not cheap, but it all works right out of the box, which is what I needed for this trip. At some point, I'll build out my own 12v DC system, for now this is more than adequate.

    Cheers,
    DJM

    Finally got it registered! Was able to use my old plates and save $50 plus the hassle of memorizing a new license plate # for the inevitable "whats your license plate" questions.

    Also moved the trailer plug to the driver side license plate light. Went pretty smoothly since I was able to reuse one of the old bolts with a random nut in my spares bin.

    The opening to the intake is under the cowl on the passenger side above where you pulled the filter from. It's WIDE open, allowing all that larger debris in. You can put a screen over it which will help quite a bit. I used gutter screen. I think it was Three bucks and change.
