I kept trying to find some kind of cover for when the tailgate was up, kind of a changing area. It needed to be waterproof, let the wind through, but provide enough cover. So I used a 3D camo blind, and then added hooks on the door. The finished result:

Finally got around to mounting a larger fire extinguisher. I have a couple of the small ones, one in the glove box and one in the rear compartment. Out here because of fire danger they require a bigger one on the Forest Service roads, and so:

So I added a machete mount, cup holder, more clamps and hooks, upgraded the hooks on the tailgate for the blind, and added insulator clips on the taillight guard. Easy with a power drill, painful with a screwdriver. :slap:

So I have a full-size Nalgene bottle, and despite 3 different size cup holders, none fit it. So I added new ones.
