This thing ROCKS!! I give it a bd - two thumbs up rating. :supz:
I did a little camping at my friends farm after her party last night.
I takes about 15 minutes to put up the first time (laundromat parking lot yesterday :roll: ), then less than 10 the second - in the dark and a bit tipsy. :drinkers:
The tent is of excellent construction and made with high quality materials.
There was nothing over looked or missed in design or assembly.
Almost a custom fit for the Ranger with strap adjustments making it tailored to our bed and tailgate.
The tent is MUCH larger than the 'umbrella' design of the competition.
The design encompasses the tailgate which gives added space and comfort.
I put it up with the rain fly and without, not complicated at all.
There are loops for lighting and hanging items in the tent as well as pockets in all four corners for small items.
There are 4 windows all have screens and full covers as well as the large entrance doorway.
The rain fly can adjust for added ventilation and has attached elastic ties as do all the windows and the door.
It is not the cheapest at $199 delivered in USA but I think worth the extra money for a very high quality product.
This tent has a 5' plus ceiling, encloses the tailgate for added inside space and has a covered vestibule to keep the weather out of the tent should it be raining.

Damn! Nice! If it's that big, that means that even I'd fit in it! Awesome! If I get into camping, I know what I'm going to have to invest in!

Yeah, that's what I want to know. Would 2 people sleep comfortably in it? Any specs on temperature rating (3 season or 4 season tent?)
Hows the ventilation?

Looks good! If I had an FX4 and that thing, I'd rethink all my earthly possessions... :)

It has excellent ventilation properties.
4 windows (one opens to access the trucks rear slider) all with full screens and the back door is also fully screened.
The rain fly has a zipper running up the length of the side windows with tie backs so no air obstruction there either.
I would say it is a 3 season tent, but the rain fly should have all snow fall off and not stick - so you could go 4 season.
I started my catalytic heater, but turned it off as it only got down to 45 that night.
The tent seals very well to the truck, and I slept on a self inflating matttress.
I used the buckets and my bed extender to get in and out, but some milk crates would give more secure footing.
I was worried the bed ridges would make it uncomfortable, but I did not notice.
I am going to make some storage boxes that will sit at wheel well level and put a platform above that.
This way you can still walk down the center, but move it together for two people to sleep comfortably.
Bought two new rectangular sleeping bags that zip together to make one full sized bed.
