    if that is an aluminum block in the rear i would change that out to a cast iron one if i was you. i have seen quite a few of those loosen up and get mangled. at the very least keep and eye on it.

    camper shell looks good! get a $20 air mattress and hit the trails!

    Specs on the platform? Interested in how you made it exactly. Looks like you just built a frame for the ply to sit on, and then put some "posts" in underneath?
