    I'm rigging a new service truck today. I'll take pics of the install. This is a new concept for me so I'll explain the thought process this evening.

    Here we go. It is a standard bed extended cab 2006F-150 with a 6 cyl. and 26,000 miles when I bought it. Getting 15 mpg now. Hope to average 13 after loaded down. 40% improvement over my F-250 8 cyl. My total cost in this truck setting it up (including purchasing the truck) (not including inventory) is 14,750.00. I just got the topper and bed slide so no inventory yet.

    1200 lbs is the load evenly spread. Has two catches, comes out halfway then comes out all the way. Glides smooth now but I'll let you know how it holds up. Definitely want to avoid slopes. I have an idea on storage I'll work on for future pics.
