    Sounds like a good plan for the future, theres not much i could add on setting up your gear in the truck, thats probally all i would do myself, good luck :)

    ....ramps for a push mower? You might need one of those Gold's Gym discount cards.

    this is hard to explain but when i was using the back of my truck i took some 2x4's and basically put them around everything so nothing would move. they were all nailed together and the way i fitted them in they wouldnt move around and nothing else would either

    it might be easier to put the mower on a rack in the back of your hitch reciever, this way you don't have to mess around with ramps everytime you stop. I also put wood in the bed of my truck, but just one 2x8 in the back, in the groves of the plastic bed liner, this keeps my blower, trimmer, gas cans etc from moving around.
