I read this thread beginning to end and had a FWC sitting on back of my truck 6 months later. It is absolutely everything I hoped it would be. I like to sit in it and drink beer when I am not using it to plot and plan my next adventure.
If you used PhotoBucket there's a good chance files are inaccessible unless you pay for their $400.premium service. I have heard bad things about PB. I think it time for the site monitors to stop accepting PhotoBucket pic???
Meaning as in a Tacoma doublecab shortbed with a Finch/Fleet? It happens a lot but with the tailgate removed. No reason you couldn't leave the tailgate on. I have a finch in a 6' bed and can close my tailgate. Some owners are against having the tailgate due to the angle which entering the camper is optimum. I like my tailgate though. I have a porch to leave items on such as shoes, water, and other misc stuff.
