How long did you listen to the radio? I usually listen to mine 4 hours or so before the voltage drops below 12V.
I've gotten 7 hours of my head unit with the truck in "ON" (no amps or subs tho). The standalone speakers in my cap I leave on while I'm sleeping and I've never had them kill my battery...yet. lol

Nah I don't have enough tools to necessitate the casket type toolbox, altho they do look slick for a contractor truck or something. I like to leave the center area open for cargo and keep my gear off to the sides

Agreed. I love camping out of the back. I would do an air mattress but I could never find one under 72"
haha I know what you mean .. I've been playing with a bunch of ideas for toolbox mounting, exterior awnings so I can work on the tailgate in the rain, new slide-out alley light mounts (so I can point the lights at a stuck tire while digging it out), and a few other ideas. But in the end I usually just end up spending the time and money to FIX something

I use a standard twin size air mattress and it fits perfectly between the wheel wells and fills front to back nicely. It hangs over the gate just a bit, but if you leave some slack in the mattress it will compress up once you shut the tailgate.
