Thinking about a bed cover at all?
Well- first it needs a roll in bed liner.

I'm torn- I have the camper cover (seen in the older pics), which is not very efficient, but offers a lot of secure storage, and is free/already assembled.

I could build a flat/dual hinged hard tonneau with some plywood and whatnots, which is relatively simple and inexpensive, but have less space.

OR I could try and build an aerocap, which is alot of time, money, and patience.

I would like to get the old gas out and run a full tank through the engine to get an idea of unmodded/baseline mileage.

What would you do, Smurf?

First Goal- Average (3 or more) tanks at 25mpg.
Second Goal- Highest ever of 30mpg.
Third Goal- Buying a more fuel efficient vehicle =/
