    Man hold up. Who needs a tent for their jeep? I guess it makes sense. What with zombies.

    It’s worth the money. I have started building a roof top out of it. I have a very cool design and this stuff is super strong and easy to use. How long do you think your plywood will last and how heavy will it be. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

    At some point I may post my design build for this but right now I don’t want to give all my designs away. Hoping to maybe get it into SEMA but will have to get the design and functionality perfect first.

    !! that sounds like it's going to be really cool. Can't wait for the reveal.

    I may reach out once I actually have my LE. I definitely want to build something custom with the 8020 stuff. I ordered a catalog and even tried to connect with some of the distributors around here. I'm going to play around and make some small stuff first. Probably a shop cart, or something like that.

    By raising the whole thing you get a rear cabin for a kitchen and seating. the front section above the cab then makes a great space to sleep without going to far over the rear bed. More functional space.

    We'll see, even with an 8020 frame I'm skinning the topper in plywood. Don't you worry, it'll all make sense some day.
