    I haven't fully completed the install yet but based on the thickness of the materials it is going to definately make it solid. Turn the collar to tighten it up either way in or out. Should help with a RTT rack.

    These are designed to help stiffen the bed during off roading or to help support the rear of the bed. The Tundra beds have a lot of flex and this just helps prevent any seperation and cracking that we have seen.

    These are an adjustable support system so even if your bed is already bent, you can use the heims to pull them back into spec.

    Let me know if you like it. I have one in my work truck and rarely use it. Camping would be a different story. I haven't even started pricing them yet but was thinking of coming up with a double battery backup to run everything without taxing my main battery.

    If I get an inverter I would increase capabilities. I've run corded power saws off the one in the COV. Good purchase :thumbsup:

    Are you going to mount it? I have this on my list as well but want to mount it and just have the plugs accessible.

    Initially i think it will just be portable and not mounted anywhere. If i see the need then i will figure that out.

    Cooper STT. Look at my tires next time you see them for wear/tare. I've had them for just over a year now.

    I got the Toyo RT and love them so far. I originally wanted the STT but most of my driving is on pavement so I decided to try the RT and they are wearing well so far. They didn't make the Duratracs in a size I wanted with a 18 wheel. I think @TRON has had a set of the RT's for a while.

    Added Toyos to my list. Will post when I can. They are a heavier tire though.

    I think the Duratracs are a great tire. Are you wanting to try something new? Was there something about them you didn't like?

    They are a good tire. On the upper end of pricing. Thinking about trying something different.

    They didn't wear the best but that was my fault for not rotating enough and swapping around suspensions.

    Want something good for the streets as that is most of my driving but also perform great on the trail. Also be mpg and road noise conscious. I don't want MTs.

    I have both the KO2 (SUV) and R/T (Tundra). More noise with KO2 but they are better rated in snow vs the R/T.
    R/T great here in the desert and quiet on highway.

    I got C/Ts as a recommendation for a "between A/T and M/T" tire that is snowflake rated. They handle great on road, great on rocks, but not near what my Nokian R2s. But then again, there is nothing out there that handles on snow/ice and I need that where I live. I would definitely but the C/T again but they were $80 a tire more than the STT's and I'm definitely going snow tire for winter and swapping out for summer.

    I do like the "in between" look of the C/T though. M/Ts just have a little less practicality for what I'm exposed to
