Looking good! I really like your interior, looks durable as hell! How much louder is it without the carpet and stuff tho?

Wait how is that Jerry Can mounted to the side of your cap?!

Also thinking of adding a 'track' along the inside of my cap to hang things from. Self-tappers just don't seem strong enough so I'm gonna drill through and bolt some L-channel near the center and then I can mount the straps/buckles to that. I found a table similar to your camp table; its a folding 4' table with one side solid plastic and the other metal grate. It would fit up there with the TV and aluminum table too!

We'll I'm a sucker for white noise so I don't mind the extra noise at all to be honest. I haven't had carpet for almost 2 years now though. I guess without the interior panels and the headliner it got a bit louder but at the same time I wouldn't have it any other way.

The jerry can isn't mounted like that. That is just a harness. THE JERRY CAN SITS inside that,then I lift it up and strap it to the roof rack. Then it's above the gas tank for the truck, then I use the super siphon and I transfer my jerry can fuel into the tank with out having to hold it plus it does the whole can in under two minutes. Plus no spills.

I NEED TO STEAL THIS IDEA. It is genius!
I bought a Jerry can for my trip to Ohio over the summer and actually using it was the biggest pain in the neck ever! Heavy, awkward, the nozzle sucked, and it was just a hassle to get the spout to work right. This is fantastic, thanks man!

Yeah no problem. Seriously with the siphon it's almost painless.

n the cab or cap? With the raised dome cap like yours I think it would sweet with a rack/basket on the cab. One of our fellow members has a setup like that

I was thinking on the cap I'd rather drill holes in that than my cab and IMO I'd look a lot better and maybe get a 40" led bar that goes all the way across and gets some square Hellas for back up and side lights

That is what I wanted mine to look like, minus the fender guards as mine did not have any stock.
