Not pretty! But it works good for a prototype. I'm also sure it will be wiped off the truck at the fast food drive through.

How did you build that box for your pickup. I just got a leaf vac and I have and F350 pickup that I need to make a box for, but I have no clue whatsoever what I am doing. Never had a leaf vac before or had to make a box.
