'Insignia 19" LED TV and a PS2 slim; it folds up and out of the way, and swivels around so I can watch it while tailgating. The TV itself is actually 12VDC so I'm looking at a way to wire it up and bypass the power inverter."

I was able to find a 12v charger at the source (Radio shack) for mine last year for the camper, just check for one with the same amp... Mine literally said 12v 5 amp on it so it was easy to find one.

Did some updates to the shell. Shopping for a new tool chest for the back. Probably going to pick that up this weekend. Tossed some new lights in the back. I liked them because they were LED an had a hinge so I can toss light towards the truck or tailgate. Scored a pretty sweet water proof box from base and packed it full of my EDC gear. Also not that it has to do with the truck but just a cool piece of new gear, scored a foldable camp kitchen of Craigslist for $50. Also wired up my utility lights on the back. They flood light out like crazy so they are perfect. Also put together a better bigger first aid kit. Straps into the top of the sub box. Last picture of the truckis from the 4th.

On a side note if I had $800 I woulda bought this car top tent. :/

Very nice, always enjoy seeing the stuff you do to your cap haha
My birthday was on the 8th and I got the exact same aluminum folding table that you have .. today I mounted it in the same spot you have yours, hanging from the roof with parachute buckles
Good idea, I had to steal it

Questions tho. First, what is that yellow thing on your roof, says "FP1" on it? And second...is that GIANT JENGA? I'm so jealous right now!

Small table? I don't blame you. Going back and forth on whether or not I wanna mount the new one. The yellow thing up there is my bike pump. It's just up there with some straps. Pictures of yours hooked up? I will post some pictures of the tool chest. Considering moving the on marine speaker and the toggle swifts so its all on the same side. A lot of work though. Haha

Sorry yes that is giant jenga made one for my bro in law for Christmas and decided to make one for myself for the 4th about $25 all in all

Yep, the little folding aluminum camp table. I used to have a little metal tray table and a stool laying in the bed and then one day decided I hated it and tossed both. I always sit on the tailgate and theres a folding chair hanging up front, now I finally have a table again!
I'll snap a picture tomorrow; its such a light table and takes up a lot less room than I had imagined.

Giant Jenga .. if I had a chop saw I would totally make a set for myself that looks wicked cool! Does it hurt when it tumbles since its like a stack of 2x4's? hahaha

Ohh ok I thought it was like a harpoon gun or something. And moving the ONE speakers is a lot of work? Do you have any idea how many times my bed has looked like this re-re-RE-wiring things back there? haha





OH I have a question and this would be the perfect place to ask. Does anyone here have a "gutter" between their cab and cap? Basically I would like to be able to leave my back window open while its raining. Ideas?

NOO no no no pass throughs or blow throughs or anything of that sort. Not for me. You gotta remember I secretly want to take my cap and throw it off a mountain because I hate it and want a PICKUP TRUCK and not an SUV haha

I'll look into this "cap boot" thing

OH and my table, I snapped a picture but I didn't feel like climbing in the bed. You get the idea lol



Held up there by only 2 straps so it DOES wobble a bit but its tight enough and the road is rough enough that I don't hear it. I brought home some foam from work I'm going to pad it up some.

I like it. Glad is worked out for you mounting it up there. I love that table. Plus up there is completely out of the way.

------------
Also the truck boot. I have considered one of these befroe

I didn't see any, but that doesn't mean anything. I probably looked right past them and didn't realize it haha I'm just looking for ideas, I've thought about getting one for when I go hunting I can store all my gear, food, water, bug out bag, etc.

they are great for camping and such, especially with a regular cab. i would suggest looking for one with hinged side windows (that open like the rear window), my boss's S10 has them and they are awsome, i really wish my cap had them! also if you plan on taking the cap on and off alot an aluminum one may be the way to go because they are alot lighter.

anyway, this is how i keep mine during the winter. i've got a toolbox at the front left of the bed for tools and such, and a plastic tote to the right for a change of cloths, a blanket, a couple MRE's and a couple of winter hats & gloves (and socks!). i cut some old house carpet remains to line the bed so it's much more comfertable to crawl into or sleep in. then the plywood at the front just keeps the carpet clean and can double as something to sit on and stay dry (or as dry firewood, lol)
