    Picked up this aluminum contractor cap for a steal this weekend. Short term plans are getting my lighting system installed as well as getting all my tools put in the cool side box. Longer term plan is to get a solar panel for the roof and finally finish getting everything together for OBA...

    Rooftop Tent Truck Bed Rack

    I forgot to mention in the 1st post. Bought the headache rack for $250, then had the ladder rack built for $250. To me, it was a decent price, since it's pretty stout.

    Rooftop Tent Truck Bed Rack

    I had bought a headache rack, and then had a ladder rack built to match it. Using it for my kayak mostly, but may end up building some cross bars for a platform / rtt in the future.

    New Photos of the Earthroamer XV-HD ahead of SEMA

    New Video (can't download ATM) shows that the XV-HD houses a Washer/Dryer Combo as an option. It's a sizeable price jump from a base model XV-LT, but I think they can reach that from a particular market base that wants a familiarity of a vehicle they're used to (Super Duty) and the kind of 'no...

    Video editing software?

    You will find nearly all high-quality 'vloggers' and such use either Final Cut or Adobe Premier. Can't cast my vote for either since I unfortunately don't produce enough to warrant paying for a subscription or buying a Mac.

    Trailer wiring - what are your tricks to keep it working

    For any lights, I always run a dedicated ground. I don't rely on using a grounding mount, as rust and paint can prevent good contact. The other half is having as few splices as possible. Every wire nut/butt connector increases the chance for something to go wrong.

    Pulled the trigger and had a guy fab up a rear bed rack to match my headache rack! Super happy with how it came out. Now on to paint and ordering lights. I'll be using it to carry my kayak, and will be adding a platform across the two for a RTT. :wings: EDIT: oh, and now I have to move all...

    Been a while since I've seen you on here! Love your truck! Did you ever end up installing lights on the back of the topper?

    Remote Controlled Lighting / Off road Flood lights

    Thank you! It's been fun to work on it. Definitely unique, and as a college student on tiny mod budget, it's been an adventure to play with. I took the truck on a 1800 mile road trip over spring break to Minnesota and Wisconsin. Definitely a trooper.

    Remote Controlled Lighting / Off road Flood lights

    Sounds like a solid plan! I had thought of using a Pi for the project and make an app for bluetooth to control it, but that's a little beyond my scope of knowledge. My buddy over on F150Forums however did make some progress on a bunch of features you listed to use a pi for. You should check it...

    Remote Controlled Lighting / Off road Flood lights

    Right now, I'm still controlling the whole system from just the remote. That will change in the future, with a 2 switch system on the center console. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28yyjMoC-1g

    Remote Controlled Lighting / Off road Flood lights

    Took off the sideboxes, added the headache rack. Included lights on there. The floods on the rack will be moving to the side for alley-style lighting during the next phase. The biggest part of the past year and a half was the change in control system. I wanted it to be more modular, and...

    Remote Controlled Lighting / Off road Flood lights

    Haven't updated this in a while, so I'll bring it up to speed, in case anyone finds value in it. Latest truck shot. Made a little center console to house new cup holders, 7" backup screen, CB Radio mount, and power switch for my accessories. The switch is wired to always on power, and...
