Tweaking the truck and trailer

So I've fitted a bed cover to the Mighty Ford in order to replace the Cherokee which has been sold. I like the cover a lot. It is a Bakflip G2 from BAK industries.

The installation took about an hour with twiddling and only required one wrench to tighten the clamps.

Interestingly, while attempting to route the rail drain hoses I found that Kent had stashed a hide-a-key box in one of the bed post sockets. So now I have both original keys from purchase.

Here are a few pictures of the new cover.





As you can see, the cover interfered with the nice aluminum box that was in the bed, so I had to remove it. After a bit of thought, I decided to mount it on my trailer to replace the plastic box that was starting to disintegrate from age and abuse. A quick trip to LeBlanc's for some stainless hardware and it's good to go.

Where did the red trailer come from?

That's Amy & Dewayne's. I'm letting them store it here until they find a house.
