The canopy is a snug pro with driver side too box. I will be putting a rack on top! Canopy can hold 500 pounds on top.

Nice Josh! I actually just tonight picked up a Yakima basket for my canopy.

Time for some LED back-ups on your bumper now huh? You're gonna want 'em maneuvering backward at night. I know I was needing them back when I was running the Leer!

Thanks!

Ya it is all solid, no windows.

Im not a big fan of a canopys with windows. If Im out hiking in the woods too I wanted something that no one can see into and wont be to easy to break in to.

I like the solid look better.

Looking good. I like the topper with the side access. I have some Yakima racks on mine...but I also want a basket. Been browsing craigslist a bit...haven't found the right one at the right price.

You ever think about doublelifting? Hell, I would. You already have the expensive half of the doublelift done.

Josh, what does the passenger side of the canopy look like? Could you post an interior pic with the tailgate and back "window" opened? I've always been curious of those.

And PS: what does that thing weigh?

Took me almost years to finally have one pop up with the extension on Craigslist at a good price. Hang in there! Most here wanted a whopping $20 off retail for a 4-5 year old used and abused basket!

Or....have one built to your specs. I still got my Yakima LoadWarrier for half the price a few places would have charged me to make one exactly how I wanted. I just don't have the time to make one.

This....hate how tall mine is but I don't let it stop me. Can't wait to torch the thing up and be lower than I am now and on 37's. Maybe when that time comes, the thing will actually be wheeled again. LOL.

I get some pictures tomorrow for ya!

The passenger side opens up to the bed, no tool box.

Im going to guess 200 pounds

I know Toyotas have a problem running them, it pushes thir bed sides out a little. ( they were on the newer toyotas dont know if thir bed are weaker or not.)

I heard it from the deal and other people that seen or have it.

I got to figure out were im going to be putting stuff, I got one more yellow and black box and another gas can too put in.

No bed slide, was thinking maybe pull out drawers in truck bed with a arb fridge on top. I got time to think about it, wont be done any time soon.

Need to get ratchet straps..

Wow Josh that's actually pretty neat!

Me being me, I suggest scuffing and painting at least the in-canopy side of the aluminum box with either regular old black paint or bedliner or some trunk paint that matches well with the carpet or painted bare 'glass. Like this:




You absolutely do need some straps!! How sturdy is the backside of the side box? I wonder if a bracket can be made and bolted to it and the spare bolted to that...and be a sturdy mount. The side box is an AWESOME place to mount some better interior lights too. All the possibilities, my brain is gonna blow! lol.

Just spitting out some ideas and I do know I'm TERRIBLE at always do that. lol.

Glad we got it done! I am interested to see how the 800 lbs coils work out. My 700s have been stiff but ride well.

Nice!! Good to see 'em finally on! I dig the strap setup. I should probably get on some bumps and straps one of these days. And holy cow....stock exhaust? Come on meow, Joshy.... lol.


I've loved my 750's....just enough stiffness without being jarring.
