    My truck is in winter hibernation right now. So I came up with an indoor video idea. Truck camper tie downs...for the truck camper that I don't yet have :(

    I wanted to start off with a gas mileage test before I got to crazy with mods.

    GPS Mount The GPS is a hand me down from my Colorado. Idea stolen from the A-Pillar RAM mount thread over at Tacoma World. I'll eventually hardwire this in.
