    A couple days ago ordered my KB Voodoo 58inch long bed rack for my long bed Tacoma. Went with the 10inch height with brackets that will allow tonneau. Ordered a softcover tonneau and a smittybilt gen2 xl rtt with matching annex. Been debating getting this setup for a long time and finally had the guts to just FULL SEND lol

    Installed the dirtskum bezel and tip, had to get it configured because of the spring under kit.

    Stock as all get out.
    Did a cb install. Took a bit of cutting to make it sit far back in the cubby but gave it a nice flush mount and it’s out of the way of the cup holders!

    It’s too much effort and I don’t really care about specific numbers since caster doesn’t impact tire wear. I know ballpark where it’ll be. Im less concerned with firewall clearance as well since I tubbed it, so rubbing isn’t a concern.

    Not in my experience.

    But, unequal caster can cause the truck to pull one direction.

    Too little caster can and will cause the truck to wander in its lane.

    To each their own. I used to work in a shop doing alignments. Caster is little understood and more important than most believe.

    Pretty much what Phil said, it’ll just cause a pull.

    Made a jack skid and instead of mounting it to the bed I’m continuing to enjoy having my bed space readily available when needed. Decided to use a bottle jack as an extender instead of making/buying something. Figured it was dual purpose.
