[QUOTE=chaimemet;874341]Thats is just a magnificent photo! I mean I don't how the inside could come up to the level of what is shown of the exterior!

We found it in a barn covered in pigeon do do last year. Spent the entire year renovating/updating everything. We were lucky that PO did not paint or varnish cabinets. The orginal red mahogany is very warm and we love it.

Thanks for your kind comment....Tim

2air,

I love pulling with the Merc, it's just that after pulling around 5000 miles so far this season, I find myself looking for more space for junk; i,e. the genset.
As well, the Merc is leased and those miles add up quickly.
I was looking for a while and found one out west on eBay with the needed options: Hemi, 3.92, and rear camera. So I bought it. I'll get delivery next week as she's taking a train ride from Vancouver, BC.

I was thinking of getting the truxedo like tkasten but wasn't sure if there would be enough clearance. The bed depth in the RAM is only 20". I'm not sure what tkasten's bed depth is in the GM pickup. Does someone know?

Otherwise, I would go with 2air's suggestion for the Leer. I'm sure it would fit.
BTW, tkasten, that's a beautiful AS. Awesome!

Thanks all for your input.
It's much appreciated,
Ron

i used a truxedo for 3 weeks about 5 years ago,

while the are shell was being REpainted.

the vinyl toneau-z work fine, but really aren't water/weather tight.

i like the full size shell for STUFF along with the bedrug liner...

but a quality fiberglass toneau closes and seals with gaskets...

and with the bed rug looks like a triple wide fur coffin ...

yes the issue with many of the euro suvs as tow vehicles, is space for stuff.

cheers
2air'

Check this out! I installed a 3200 Cummins quite diesel generator in the back of my 2006 Ford. Plumed it off the tank in the truck so I never have to worry about carrying gas cans. It is enclosed by a custom built powder coated tool box that I fabed. Works great with a little over 100 hrs on it since installed with no problems ! a little $$$ pricy but worth it!

You did a great job! Looks good, hidden, and functional.

nmgt350h - Great job! I wish I was that handy.

I do agree with 2air - If I did not have the need to carry my 4 wheeler then I would use a full size fiberglass shell..... Tim
