But anywho, this is what i did today, was not to my ranger but FOR my ranger.
This is the truck tent i scored a couple weeks ago for a great price. its kick ***.
I took it out on its maiden voyage using a small twin air mattress i bought from wally world for myself but it was not very comfy. I like my beds (firm) so i hit the drawing board!
THIS is what i came up with :)
This is it all broken down and store. I will be driving with all my other gear in the back like this. notice the center box supports how the all fit together to save space. I have a woodworking background so this was no big deal for me
Now i tested it. its quite hard, i plan on getting some 1" foam for couch arms etc to glue to the top pieces. also wrapping it in some sort of carpet thats cheap to make it a little more "comfy"
also i did a roundover on any edges a hand can come in contact with.
total build coast was about $25 due to using scrap Birch ply pieces for the boxes.
If anyone wants a sketchup model of the top piece let me know i can send it your way!!!
