I wouldn't think there would be a way to seal up the tent to bed properly.

My buddy had a truck tent for his F150 and I think the tent was just like a regular one, had the bottom that went across the bed floor and was connected to the sides/top. I think it would work, just have to make sure they are cool and let the tent rest up against them. I'd call the manufacturer to make sure the tent isn't like a truck cap and just goes to the bed rails, but I would think it's a regular tent.

i bought one for my truck and im putting stacks in mine. I talked to a guy i know that has stacks and he said he has no issues, just make sure the stacks are cooled off before throwing it up in there. i bought the Guidegear one from sportsmans guide... $69.97 plus shipping

2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!
