Put the pappy cap back on and I should add by myself.. just so I could take the girlfriend to the drive in in the rain! While everyone else was jammed in the vehicles we were nice and cozy in the cap!

For whatever reason I've been debating on getting a topper. Good ideas and such in here

Browsing CL... came across the topper that was on my '93. Seller wants $100 more than I paid for it when I bought it off my uncle.
Too bad it is for a longbed, I would buy it back.

When I sold the truck it went with it. Guess the guy who bought the truck had no use for it and got rid of it.

Personally I like the look better without it. If I wanted an SUV I would have bought one lol. Its a love/hate relationship for me

If your going to be doing an expedition build two things: 1 start a build thread now. Haha it sucked when I decided to do one but had to back date everything.

2: Are you aware of expedition portal? If not you should check it out.

The build will be somewhat slow right now but once I make more progress ill be sure and get a thread going. I'm already a member of expedition portal. It consumes a lot of my time! Also, sweet setup ya got there!

What's the best way to seal the gap between the edges of the tailgate and the bed? I crammed a pool noodle in there and it shuts okay but looks goofy lol.
