    is that a 2nd or 3rd gen topper?
    Looks like a 3rd gen due to the lower roof line

    I wonder if shortbed softoppers can be camped/slept in somehow

    Made door harnesses for my power mirrors (still waiting on the pass. side mirror connector). I also made the harness that goes from the passenger door to the switch and driver door to the switch.
    Mapped out the wiring for the fuse boxes and going to start wiring those up later today.

    I would shoot you a direct link, but my work computer won't load their website. I'll do my best to describe the options I chose instead.

    I went for the 2 channel version (P/N DR750S-2CH), which has front and rear cameras. I also ordered a Power Magic Pro hardwire kit so I can use parking mode. I bought a 10 pack of mini add-a-fuses from Amazon, since they are much less expensive than those sold through BlackBoxMyCar. Similarly, I did not opt to buy an SD card as part of the camera package from BlackBoxMyCar; I got a Sandisk MAX Endurance 256GB card from BH Photo Video instead, which is arguably the best SD card for dashcam applications on the market today.

    I thought I had finally sold my OEM roof rack after months of trying on FB Marketplace. Met the guy out of town and he rolled up in an access cab. I have a DCSB (which was stated in the ad) so no sale. Great guy though, we had a nice chat. He is attempting to set the Guiness record for snowmobiling on water, which I learned is 43 miles. He plans on going for 200+ miles and refueling mid-trip with a jet-ski like a jet fighter would.

    So after wheeling last week I noticed I was hitting bump stops in rear. Going to be adding the HD leaf to my Dakar pack and wanting to get new bump stops. I am looking for suggestions on what to get. I don't need any fancy hydraulic ones but thinking about Either energy suspension or Timbren with the ubolt flip kit. Less money is always good seeing how I just spent almost 700 on rebuilding my front end. Any input will be appreciated, Are the timbren that much better then stock or the ES 2.5"? Timbren is over $300 where ES is under $70.

    Where did you mount them up? Your light output looks good and coverage on the ground is perfect.

    After finally getting my truck back from the shop for some work and installs, I finally got around to putting on some new tires to fit the new lift.

    Heat. My last time changing both plugs were so on there even me standing on a breaker bar wasn’t doing anything. About a solid minute with a blue bottle torch spin right out effortlessly.
