Maybe it was just awkward to carry on my own but it felt like I have been dragging around 200lbs or more of dead weight on the back of the truck. Should I put this back on after I'm done? I like how sturdy it is and I can lock the bed up (including the tailgate)...but my shoulders and back are not a fan of it at the moment.
Thanks a lot!
I think you answered your own question, it portects and provides a small boost in econo, i would just get a buddy to help me put it back on.
