    I do! It's leaves much to be desired though. I want a secondary anytime cam with a broader view of the bed and surroundings.

    Also thought about putting a cam on the inside rear window but it would unfortunately be hindered by glare.

    `Same thoughts,I just ordered the exact same terminal up-grade today from SDHQ,Im currently running the ultimate battery terminals from knukonceptz,not very ultimate in my mind at all, 5 different allen wrenches needed and they are located on the underside of the terminals so you need to connect cables/wiring first,then mount to battery,dont get me wrong ,I enjoy a challenge & wrenchen on "thee" truck but what a disappointment for $50,I'm happy to spend nearly twice as much for the best terminals.Dang I sure sound like a whinny little bitch,sorry TW peeps I'll shut up now,thank you and goodnight,ha.

    I also just bought the SDHQ kit. Delivered in 1/2 a week & some of the best packaging I’ve ever seen. Super impressed

    It'd look sick, but if you ever plan on a shell or a softopper you'll lose your view. With my softopper i lost most of my rear view capabilities. I recently installed the Vantop rear view system, and the only thing I dont like is how low the camera mounts (on the license plate frame). Headlights straight into the rear camera wash out the image. Another perk of your set up is if it is the type that is "on" when the truck is parked, it'll keep an eye on the contents of your bed and record if it senses vibration.

    I was getting annoyed that I could never find a great place to pack my shovel when we went camping. I usually just wedged it in between other stuff or just let it bounce around in the bed--but that got super annoying when we were heading out to more remote spots.

    So I installed some Quick Fist clamps to fix the problem. Use stainless T-slot nuts and stainless fasteners to mount them. The brackets that came with the clamps looked to be mild steel, so I hit them with some primer+paint to inhibit corrosion. I really like them so far.

    I used the remaining two stainless T-slot nuts (came in a pack of 4) and fasteners to mount some D-rings at the front of the bed for some additional tie-down points.

    Looks good! Great idea! Did you just get those on Amazon?

    Thanks. I've only used the clamps a handful of times so far, but shovel didn't move or rotate after hours of 75+ freeway speeds and some very bumpy desert wheeling. So I'm happy with them.

    The T-slot nuts and fasteners are 304/18-8 stainless. Ideally they would be 316, but that would make them more expensive and unless they see a lot of salt spray, they shouldn't corrode.

    The stainless T-slot nuts are from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DXJ9QGF

    Same with the D-rings (given how cheap these were, I expect them to rust at some point, but I'll just swap them out if it comes to that, since they came in a package of 10).
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MB985GW/

    The metric fasteners I picked up from McMaster (but you can find similar ones on Amazon, or probably locally too). The bolts that mount the clamps to the bracket are M8-1.25 x 40mm, with M8 washers and Nylock nuts (all stainless). The bolts that mount the bracket to the bed rail/T-slot nut are 3/8-16 x 1.00" (also stainless). The 3/8 bolts are from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TRTRHWR

    The Quick Fist clamps I got at Wheeler's. They come with fasteners, but I swapped all the fasteners for stainless obviously. Also note, I had to drill out the mounting hole on the brackets to fit the 3/8" bolt.
