    Anyone out there that knows of a system to make the sides of your bed on you truck higher; in order to fit more leaves in it? I've been using a big tarp layed down in my truck bed and then wrap up the sides when full, it extends the height a liitle bit, but not the best. Any ideas?

    yeah i've seen that. Did you have to drill holes in your truck bed at all though?

    heres what i made for mine. I bent up some galvanized piping and cover it with mesh and mount the vac on the back of the truck. it works very well and i dont have any problems driving into the wind.

    I built a leaf box. it's 5 foot tall so total is 6' 6" tall.

    I used 2x4's and just notched the bottoms to fit in the stake pockets then used plywood to enclose it.
