Very nice Beard. I think you need to tie the Side bars into the frame other wise if you come down on them they are going to bend.

The tonneau cover looks good on there.

looks good but the side bars look out of place, you need to add some on top of them as "side" protection, like so....

Zach, that would look AWESOME with my hood and my tailgate. You should send it down as my B-Day present . I agree with the rollpan comment though, I think that would set it off just right.

I have a hard time seeing it bend out on the trial, now if someone hit me that would be a different story, but just hitting trees and whatever else i dont think it can bend.

The rollpan wouldnt fit in there with that design and I would have to get it painted.
