Yeah I know that but it would be extra that wouldn't be needed. Cause if he was gonna do a tonneau then he wouldn't put all the extra weight in the bed to make it look nice.

He doesn't have to worry about the weight I know just another thing to prove the point that the tonneau would be no good. lol

Your on. Its definitely not what you expect when you look at it. Some poor ricer thought he was gonna get in front of me tonight on 620 at a light. He was wrong, and I didn't even need to break the posted limit to do it, but I sure got there fast. LOL I love ricers.
