    This and that
    I have a set in black.
    I initially thought they could be installed and the receiver could be removed. That’s not how it works. So I have the replacement “receiver” that comes without the tow package, but it’s going to require a little grinding and drilling another hole. Just haven’t had the time.

    I’ll have to research it, but I remember seeing a set of seals for the storage bin. Can probably use some foam weatherstripping at the two openings where the cover legs go into, if that makes sense. That’s where the dust enters.

    My bed gets pretty dusty in the summer months off-roading. Even with the tonneau cover closed.

    It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine) ...

    But while it dies ... Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden on CBS (I'm is a New York state-of-mind ...)

    Was it easy to install and do you see it being easy to take off? I'd like a softtopper for the summer but I need to be able to take it off occasionally...

    I got the Softopper since I still need to use the bed as well. Its great that it can fold down.

    Installing was not too difficult at all. I have yet to remove it, but it would be way quicker the next time since I now know how to do it.

    This is the exact reason I'd want a soft-topper. I have a truck tent but boy is it a pain in the ass to set up and take down. Thinking about pulling the trigger soon...

    Thanks for the info

    The topper tent is also real easy to set up. It's just the Velcro and zippers that the rear softopper flap uses.

    I spent a couple hours yesterday doing a solid post-winter clean-up. I got to use my new Active VE52 electric pressure washer for the first time and it did very well. After washing everything down, and doing a final wipe with Turtle Wax hybrid ceramic wet wax, I got to see how well the Gtechniq held up over the winter. And it looks great. The tailgate took the biggest beating, coating wise. Which seemed odd. But I'll be going back over everything once it stays nice out for a while.

    How do you like that pressure washer? I’ve been thinking of getting a small one to clean vehicles with. The big gas one is cumbersome and with fuel and such kind of a hassle. The reviews are mixed on Amazon.
