Dark pictures of the leaf box... almost complete just have to add the mesh tarp to the top/back and should be all set.

I don't have one quite yet, couldn't find a 9" pipe to fit around it. Neither Home Depot or Lowes had anything I could use, let me know if you have any ideas! I only need a 9" diameter pipe about 3 foot long... so annoying.

My opinion is that you're going to have to close off the back...extend the tailgate up to the top of the board basically. Cut a hole for a piece of PVC to go from the blower tube to the inside of the truck. You can hinge that part so it can swing away when dumping.

I could be wrong, but you're probably going to get too much blowout if you don't close the back off. Then get a black mesh tarp to the cover the top so the air can escape.

Absolutely, the tarp will finish it off nicely and I'll take some day time pictures. That machine is effing loud!

You can get a piece of PVC Schedule 20 to fit over the blower tube. That's the green pipe. It's thinner and lighter than the Schedule 40 PVC and ABS white and black pipes.

Absolutely, I have a mesh tarp that I was going to cover 1/2 of the top and the back with. Perhaps a wood back would be better, I'm going to see how it works tomorrow and make some adjustments if need be.

Not trying to tell you what to do....if it works with the back open tomorrow for you, then you don't need to change anything. I just don't want to see you struggle with it and be miserable.
