    I was out Saturday night doing some Uber rides. I get a call to pickup at a bar, and the passenger asked if it was an XLT or Lariat.

    Well I put my Flated topper on yesterday. Was going to do a few hours of rideshare in the snow, and figured It would keep any suitcases or groceries dry. I get home and my wife sees it this morning and says take it off, it's creepy. It's not creepy to me, but I guess if you are a woman using...

  19. 3D printed bed corners?

    Looking at adding a camper to my Maverick. Ford designed the front of the bed caps with a curve, which really gets in the way. It is doable (like GFC) but would be much better and less waste of space if the curved piece was remade with a 90 degree corner. I'm thinking 3D printed 90 degree...
