    Yep. Both my wife and I just finished a 2500mi road trip and they worked really well for us. With the inserts, this is a nice setup.

    Next (minor) mod: 2x 5.11 6.10 pouches and 2x 5.11 10.6 pouches. Fit like a glove.

    Plan to fill 'my' side with some of the less used tools I like to carry; gloves, multitool, flashlight, small hatchet, fire starters, compass, emergency mirror, energy gel packs, etc. The wife plans to fill hers with emergency stuffs for the dog etc (full first aid kit is already carried under the driver side rear seat).

    PS: The rifle mounts worked *extremely* well last week during our four day match, for both of us. Got more than a few comments/compliments and may have even scored a sale or three for Victory4x4. Guys were very interested in this solution and several said they'd been trying to figure something similar out for years.

    I was able to get out and hit the dirt this past weekend and I'm glad to say the Tundra did remarkably well. We put in about 20miles over some relatively rough terrain, sharp desert rocks, sand, steep climbs and decents, off camber turns, water crossings... all good. Most of the trail was narrow and winding requiring a 2-3mph creep. A small bit of it was wide open fire road where I was able to hammer down. In those spots I pushed pretty hard and the truck just took it all in stride. I wouldn't say its up to the same standards I'm used to coming from a fully custom suspension "pre runner" type tuned gen1 Raptor, but it was definitely good enough to have some fun. And it was better in the slow twisty stuff. Felt much more sure footed. All of which I guess isn't surprising given the two very different suspension setups. I did come away convinced sliders are a must though... good thing they're on the way :)

    PS: The front camera and FRAC harness were awesome to have. I liked seeing what was below when nose diving like in the pic, but REALLY liked having it when climbing and seeing only sky thru the windshield. Was great not to have to trust the trail didn't turn out from under me in those situations.
