Ha, I just figured the tent was for events and was making a joke that it's going to blow away in a storm. So how do you keep the tent anchored in a storm?

Haha oh I gotcha. The tent is made to be mounted on the roof of a vehicle, so we'll mount it straight to the exterior roll cage over the camper shell.

It looks huge on the Jeep Renegade here but it'll look dwarfed on the 6 door truck haha.

Couple progress pictures of the stretch! The middle door is about 4" short on purpose to add an extra 4" inside the cab for extra space. The door will be modified to fit

Is it just an optical illusion or do you have two different center doors? It looks like the passenger side has a squared off opening in the bottom rear corner, and the driver's side is rounded like the rear door.

The center doors changed between those two posts! He actually cut off the end of a door from a Tahoe and extended the middle doors on both sides by about 4" to give us a little more room inside. So if you're comparing the doors in different posts, yes they're different

Thanks man, that means a lot! Taken a lot of grief about the past 4.5 years but it definitely serves its purpose!
