Finally got around to building a sleeping platform for my tundra.
Searched around for plans and pics for a while and this is what I came up with.
Wanted it light, easily removable, able to fit my fat skis underneath, and small when not in use.

Plenty of room for the fatties

Can be removed in about 3min, weighs 91 pounds, and stores small.

Show up well for me :D

Nice work, I dig it. I like how the 2x4's hold it from moving and how the upright board stay put with the bed liner. Clever.

I got the pads at Costco about 10 years ago? Looked on amazon and they have some for about 65.00 a piece. Don't remember paying that much for them though. :beer:

Thanks Marco, I was surprised how well everything fit together. 1x10's fit perfect after I routered the bottoms to fit in the bed liner.

Nice work. I would suggest getting a cheap hoe (that's hoe, not ho you nitwits) and leave it in there. Then use it when your strap, gatorade, gloves, scraper, boot, whatever slides all the way up the channel. Maybe even a tool handle clamp to keep it in place? Will come in handy. :thumb:
