Which storage system did you get. Can you take a pic? :-) I'm in the process of getting one. Really like the Bestop tailgate organizer.

Had a FlowMaster 40 put on...

Sound's a bit "ricer" right now, but I hear that's not uncommon when they're brand new.

Got these today from Cruthfield and will be installing all four first thing tomorrow morning! I already replaced the 130 RES unit with Kenwood KDC-552U two weeks ago...the stock speakers were ok, but I think these will be much better.

Got em yesterday but didn't get the chance to post. Finally got rid of the stock wheels and tires for some 285/75R16 Falken Rocky Mountain ATS's on XD Series Addicts. Looks so much better!

Built a trunk cover. Easy to make for under $40. Wanted to detour someone from walking by and grabbing anything. Plus I didn't want to spend $300-$450!

Details? Does it lock? Looks fantastic! Does it affect the tailgate opening or closing?

Washed off 5 months of snow, mud & salt. Recoated the fenders & bumpers, respooled the winch and gave Moose a thorough cleaning in preparation for dry dust and crawling and camping this weekend then EJS next weekend.

Definitely need a write or some more pictures, this looks great. How do you lock it down? Does it have a back to it so if you fold the rear seat you can access trunk?
