I hope so.
have been playing with the thought of EV conversion of pickup (as they seem to be pretty easy) and the aero cap would really finish it off well.

What size bed do you have on your 06 F150?

Elepski,

What size bed do you have on your F150? What kind of cab do you have? How may miles a day do you drive to work! Where do you live at?



I have a lid in gelcoat. I'll make you a great deal if you want it. Things are about to get going here. I am the most ready of all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me know,

Bondo

Evening people... I just read through 6 pages of posts and have to say Bondo thanks! Love the idea. I drive a 4 cyl. Ranger and am getting 24.8 MPG, but I know it can be more. You are an inspiration and if there is anything I can do to assist (I am an architect) just let me know.

Thanks
