    Rigid ditch lights, Rigid hyper spot "selective orange" on the Armadillo "brush guard", Morimoto LED's in the OEM slot, predator steps, KB Voodoo bed rack,Cali Raised bed stiffeners, Tepui RTT, bat wing awning, Rexing cameras, Bridgestone Dueler Revo 3, 265/70/17.
    I think Cali Raised has their weight limits on the page. If not, contact them and they should provide it. They are responsive to PM's. Hooligan also has their listed. https://www.hooliganoffroad.com/col...acoma-action-roof-rack?variant=32215902683185. The other statement they make is a protection for them, follow the vehicle manufactures recommendations so you don't collapse a roof or really raise your center of gravity and roll it over. Hooligan says each cross bar will hold 250 lbs each, x6 = 1500 lbs over your head. Somone will thinks that's OK and do it. And do some damage. And blame the roof rack manufacturer.

    Thanks. Will continue to research. I think the Leitner guys have it nailed (see below). But I also understand the whole fear of liability -- and lawyers in general, for sure!


    Off-Road Dynamic Weight Capacity | 250

    On-Road Dynamic Weight Capacity | 500

    Parked Static Weight Capacity | 1000

    Edit: Of course, that rack is 3X the cost ! :)

    There’s been a lot of tire pressure discussion. I’ve always adjusted my tire pressure for each specific set of tires I run. I use inner, middle and outer temperatures, but a simple chalk test works too. It doesn’t take much time and even less effort to actually figure out the pressure that will give you the best contact patch and longest tread life. Considering the expense of all terrain tires I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t do this.

    Ya, I my camp kitchen kit is in a Rubbermaid bin that fits perfectly under there. Plus, camp chairs, tents, sleeping bags, etc. all fit under it. Then other stuff on top.

    My old platform used the 2x6 (they actually are more like 1x6) cross slat grooves. I also had a piece of MDF that slid in as a center support. It worked alright, but I wanted something more modular, that I could run in different ways. My idea is I can have half as a platform (with the pieces for the other half packed in) and half open, so my yeti and other taller gear can pack in there. Then, in a pinch, you could move that gear and make it a full platform for sleeping. We usually sleep in a tent, but it's nice to have the option to sleep in the back fairly easily. My wife and I take a lot of long road trips.

    Here's a pic of the half platform setup. With the one side support folded in (I used some basic hinges), and the other platform pieces packed20200916_121734.jpg The platform is sturdy as hell! I'm happy with how it turned out.

    Oh, and for carpet, with this platform and my old one, I'm just using a cheap utility rug I bought at home Depot for like $15 or something. Cut to shape, secure with spray adhesive, wrap around the edges and staple into the bottom to keep it tight.

    So key to sleeping in DCSB is getting above the wheel wells so you have width?

    The last time I slept in a truck bed was solo in my RCLB 2002 Tundra so tons o room. The modular setup makes a lot of sense for the limited space we have. Tailgate open or closed?

    Added some Yakima racks on my cab today. Easier to carry raft frames and SUPs! 20200916_191752.jpg 20200916_191740.jpg

    Didn't want a prinsu or similar on the cab (at least not yet). I like being able to take the racks off easily when not needed.

    Some friends have to evacuate because of the bear creek fire in Angeles Forest. So I helped evacuate their goats never thought that would be my day when I work up this am. Just for reference you can fit two goats in the back seat as well as the goats in the bed.00D32A50-001D-420E-952B-489F93745D71.jpg

    The width definitely helps. When I'm solo, I sleep diagonally. Luckily, I'm only 5'9" and my wife is about 5'4". We've slept with the tailgate open usually, with some camping bins at the end of the platform to support the pad and our feet. But we can get pretty comfortable even with the tailgate and shell closed.
    We have a Exped MegaMat Duo LW pad, which is pricey but extremely comfortable for camping. It fits in nicely.
    We usually just sleep in our tent, because most of the time we are spending more than one night at the same location.

    Totally makes sense, thanks for the explanation! Once I get my topper and finish up some other mods and projects, I'll have to play around and figure out a good system for myself back there.

    Sometimes you guys just piss me off! I swore I wasn't going to buy these...and then I saw the posts this morning.....and I ordered both the hinge and the striker covers (plain black, though).

    Ugh.

    Decided I wanted a Mountain Hatch. I know people are mixed on them. They def aren’t cheap. I got a discount on Labor Day weekend and decided to go for it.
    so here is a pic and the video I made camping and then installing the hatch.
