Termites inside your rig? That's crazy stuff.

I like to hide all my tools from crackheads looking to score. The top cover can hold 3/4 of a ton on too so it's like having a flatbed for materials. And you can still get to all your tools without having to dig or be crushed by materials on top.

Yes I did the same set up. I like a shell so much better than a tonneau. I am now selling and going into a van.

I just discovered these HD carts are the perfect height to slide products into my van.

Same thing with my pickup truck. Loading plywood on them and moving through the store is more difficult though.

Rookies. The carts are so you can wheel your purchases into your ramp door trailer, strap it down, and then wheel it right to where you need it once you get to the job.

Done that, win, win is you have a cart when you return with it for your next purchase.
