Tonneau cover so I can reach everything right to the front without breaking my back 😊 Keep a big locking bin right at the front with my smaller tool box and tools ( hydraulic Jack , electric impact, drill etc). Have a 2 gallon compressor and 50' hose with a good quality gauge and chuck on board as well as 3000W Yamaha gen set. Also beach chairs, loungers,blocking for trailer levelling etc. When we travel to really remote places with a lot of gravel road I add a second spare tire for the truck in there as well.

Now i have a well identified in event of it being stolen - 4500 Watt Generator.
I do carry the 5500w Briggs & Stratton in front of the chest but I take off the wheels and the front foot.

It sits about as high as the box does, I just avoid big dips and make a little wider turn...

My windjammer does not have a lot of storage so I plan to keep the 2x10s in the truck bed.

Same here,

I carry 2x10's and my boxes I made for the stabilizers as well as a tongue jack pad. On long trips I keep one or 2 5 gallon gas cans chained in the bed. I have a locking Retrax roll top on ours most of the time.

Our bikes on the tail gate, 5 - 5 gallon jugs of diesel fuel at the front of the bed, misc pieces of wood including some 2x10 pieces and then a Cargo box on a rack. We were going to put the dog between the bikes and the diesel but she has been fine in the cab so we put the wood there.

What's in your truck bed?

Traveled from NC to the Rockies And using the storage bins with a cover has been great.

Thinking by spring there will be a 30 or 40 gallon diesel tank. Darn things are pricey

Three bagged chairs, one 40x20 locked storage box. And a 24 pack of water when traveling outside of the "circle". And if you know me, a typed inventory list in the glove box. Trust me you that is time well spent.....
