    I think it really depends on how your truck is loaded. I have had a shell on mine since it was a month old and have the cracking in the bedside supports so I installed the TC stiffeners. If you don't have something like a shell or bed rail bars, you probably won't see anything.

    After that carwash I'd dry it before you get water spots.

    Many people have described needing to ratchet in the sides of the bed in order to achieve a 90 degree angle so the brackets fit. Some people are doing it for preventative maintenance so they do not have a problem and others are doing it because it looks cool, or they would like a bottle opener in the bed of their truck or they have extra money they need to get rid of.

    I saw some flex in my ranger due to lumber racks. If you never carry loads then you probably don't need one. A shell is less rigid than a rack so if you load up a shell it needs this even more to protect both from outward flex. A bed rack may help or hurt depending on how it's made and loaded.

    I'm back with updates.

    The plastidip had a hard time sticking to the Ultra Mavericks (XSPX stock rims) and started peeling within 3 months. I peeled it off and had black Fuel Vectors (18*9) put on yesterday. I also installed an OEM roof rack and had the chrome bumper and grill wrapped black. Attached are pics of the new wheels, rack, and previously installed A/V system.

    It's come a long way.

    Wired my switchbacks to amber when the truck is on, tied into raptor lights. Didn't really want the blinker function but wanted amber and I think it looks cleaner than a halo. Plus it gives me the option to switch to white whenever I get bored.

    yeah. Not the same as Dahl's (their ute trays and toppers are way better) but it is all purchased in North America so parts are available and reasonably priced

    build is in my signature.
