Ok broke down and started the project... for those of you looking for ideas on this topic see below. I will post pics tomorrow when completed. I will be getting the http://www.tentsontruck.com/fullsize.html
tent to polish it off after I'm done with the platform itself.
The platform: I make it out of preasure treated (probably over kill but as Tim "the tool man" Taylor would say har har har har har
) 4x4's posts and 2x4's. I used 3" decking screws on the frame... will probably use 1 5/8" screws for the hinges, and 1/4" plywood on top. well I'll post pics tomorrow folks.
Next to come: The CB... I saw someone had an antenna mounted on the roof rack... Like the idea and going to run with it.
