Default Re: Truck Tent for the ranger?

damn i forgot how expensive canvass tarps are, for a 6x20 tarp its like 85 bucks lol... might have hit a snag on the home made tent. that would be enough to go over the top and maybe the front or back...

it was never really intedned to be used in the winter when it rains so..maybe not lol its turned into thiss huge potential project and i love it ! haha

maybe grandpa loves me enought to give me two of his, maria already planned on sewing two together even though i disagreed w that kinda even if i pay 85 for a tarp..still cheaper than a real tent

true, see about draping one over the top, get that all sized up, and cut it to fit, then the best way to cut the front out would be to trace the shape. with the tarps you have you might be able to make it work, the small tarps 6x10 are like 35 bucks.
