    When I lay down my seats it isn't level, so I'm wondering what some of you have done to level it out so you can use a mattress?

    When I had my TRD OR, I leveled it using plywood and upholstered it. Fit perfectly and I slept on it with an air mattress multiple times. Where are you located? I forget the dimensions, but I still have it if you have $25 to spare. I’ll upload pictures and measure it too, if you want.

    That looks great. I'm in STL. I'll probably build something like that.

    A homemade platform is inexpensive. I made one, altered it, and then built another.

    Those fishing rigs looks badass, how did you mount them?

    I used this rack from Cabala:

    https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en/rod-saver-vehicle-rod-carrier

    I cut the ends off and attached it to some aluminum flat stock and bent it to follow the curve of the roof. I doubled up the aluminum to keep it from sagging in the middle. It's been working great for 2 years now.

    Thanks for the reply. I’m assuming you mounted them using factory holes? I started fishing again and the rods sitting on the middle is getting old quick.

    The rear is attached where the luggage hooks were. The front is just wedged in the hooks by the grab handles.
