Got tired of breaking my back lifting generators, outboard motors and water tanks [black and fresh water] into the truck bed. This cost me $125 and really takes a load off.
I lifted a 30 gallon barrel of water onto the tailgate with no problem. Also a Champion 3000 watt generator, swiveled it around into the bed and lowered it with ease.
I added the larger baseplate as the sheet metal of the bed isn't strong enough to handle a very heavy load IMO.
When I received the unit from FedEx, the end of the box was opened and all the small parts were missing. Seller said he would reimburse me for the parts if I chose to buy them local which I did. We will see if he stands by his word.
Sorry, but couldn't rotate pictures upright. Not tech savvy.

Amazon.com for $89 + $35 shipping [really heavy built]. Look under "truck crane".

Murphy had fun while I put in new Door speakers.
Next on the list was a little improvement in the cab speakers. Got a good deal on Rockfords at Amazon and headed over to the storage lot humming a happy tune. Hey, great time to exercise the genny, so crank it up for the soldering iron, cause we're gonna do this right! heh heh. Pull the door panels, easy peasy. Pull the stock speakers off. Check the innernet for Ford door speaker polarity. Check. Hey, I think I'll crank the AC on to load that genny good and proper. Ok, back to the speakers. Ok, snip off the plug, hmmm not much wire left.... ok, soldering iron ready, tin the post and wire, check. Ok, holding the (-) wire to the post. Careful, don't want to damage the new speakers. drip..... drip... oh crap, AC is draining right down on the door (hi murphy) drip drip drip... faster now.... I know that shutting down the AC won't give immediate relief drip drip drip... argh, door panel hanging by harness, cant just close it, drip drip drip...gotta get the nose up... quick hit the Bigfoot... power on... manual... Lt Front, Rt Front buttons quick, quick nose in the air.... daylight under the tires... drip stops. Solder solder.... whoa... way more adrenaline used than Ihad planned. Gotta laugh.....

Nice! I like it is under the rail. I'm a Amazon nut so you may have just Cost 125 bucks. Thanks!

Nice play-by-play. DW doesn't much like to have the radio on while traveling. Heck, the FREE SiriusXM subscription on her new Jeep is going to waste because she doesn't like to have the radio on!

Reflex

I installed reflex on the indoor coil housing of the AC unit. I attached 3 sides with spray glue and on the service side used foil tape to hold the reflex it in place just incase I need to service the unit. It took about 45 min and is a very easy modification to do. I had already installed a hard start kit and insulated the suction line.
