    It's nice and comfortable, plenty of storage for the gear and it's always ready to go. No more setting up a tent in the dark after hours of driving. :thumbsup:

    6'x7' roll rubber backed carpet $20

    Mattress came from a RV I sold a while back.

    Took about 4 hours and 7 beers to complete.


    I'm planning to make a flip up door for the cargo area with a prop that can be used as a shelf when cooking or whatever, and I'm looking for a high top cap for a bit more headroom. Maybe some of those LED tap lights as well.
    Thanks for the list, guess I didn't see it before. That's awesome and something I would consider as I am thinking about getting an older truck for a run-around.

    Nice, did you get that second phase done to this project?
