Dang! That is just a pleasure to admire.
I noted the, what appear, similar to torklift tie downs and also in different orientation in some of the pics- what is there purpose? Was curious about the rack, obviously clears and assuming the spare lives there but what stops forward camper movement. Can you disable rack lights?

AnEv942,

The tie-down “flags” were cut on the same premise on the tork-lift style. I still use my original fast-guns to tie the camper down. My originals on my 08 worked well with my fast-guns so I mimicked them. Just used 2”x1/4” wall tubing instead of 1-1/4” (I think that’s the size they use)
The spare tire will stop forward motion, it sits in a well in the bed under the rack 11” off the front wall.

The in-board rack lights are high output LED and are switched by one of the auxiliary up-fitter switches in the cab. The outboard lights are brake, running and reverse and can not be switched.

Outstanding work, and beautiful result. But for full credit, you have to show your design work. (or not, it's the result that counts)

I’m sure you have already decided on where to put the spare, but I can’t tell based on the pictures. So, don’t forget to make spot for the spare tire! Looks great! Whoops! Disregard, I looked a little closer. That is an awesome build!
