On my truck's first outing (at 3:30 am)earlier this week, my buddy and me were driving up and down a bunch of steep inclines and shallow ravines when my tailgate popped open dumping my tool box and tools everywhere. We searched the best we could and collected what we could find and slammed the tail gate shut and continued driving over stuff when it popped open again spilling my socket set everywhere in the dark. We picked up all that we could and slammed the tail gate shut, this time past the latches kind of hyper extending it into the truck and it still popped open! We decided to call it quits and go home and tally up the tool casualties. I lost 3 craftsman ratcheting box end wrenches and half of my sockets . so I went today and bought new tools and a new tool box for my sockets. Losing the sockets might have been preventable if I wasn't so cheap in the first place (the pic of the old card board box WAS my old tool box. And I dusted/painted all of my tools floresent orange to make them easier to see in the future should it happen again. As for the tail gate.... I removed it and put a turbo net tail gate on. I don't plan on doing any more off roading until I can get my hands on a old truck bed tool box to attach behind my back seat between the seat and the tail gate to put stuff in. And my passenger side door is stuck shut for some reason too. I may not have been driving over big stuff yet, but I am definately hooked on off roading. Thanks everyone for listening to my gripe session.
