My F250 update

So far been loving the new truck. 6.7 is a beast. I have done a couple things since I have got it.
Ford rain guards
Tinted front windows to match
Deezee invisarack
Truxedo tonneau mate toolbox
Truxedo low pro qt tonneau cover

Couple things I was looking to accomplish with this setup. I own a construction company. This is my personal vehicle. We own other trucks that haul lumber. So with this truck I was looking to still have the ability to carry a ladder or longer piece of lumber. However I didn't need the capacity of a Trac rac like I have on my other trucks. I wanted the ability to have a cover with a tool box as well for my personal tool belt and hand tools. I don't like any tools in the cab near my leather seats. Check out the pics. It's good enough for the minimum duty requirements of the boss. And when the covers rolled back and the rack folded down it doesn't look like a work truck.

I should prolly send some with the rack folded up. There's YouTube videos if any of you guys are interested in one. I know some of you guys are prolly doubting the sturdiness but it handles plenty. Not what a Trac rac will but its good enough. And when it's folded down truck still looks handsome.

Great looking rig. I tinted my front two to match also, makes a big difference. I like the look of that rack too. For your type of business, that thing looks like it will do the job. Oh, and I have the same exact truck except a f350.

How do you like them rain guards? Im looking at some weather tech ones.

Love the truck. I am interested in this same setup for my Silverado. How did you mount both the tonneau and the Invisarack? The Invisarack product details say that it will not work with a tonneau cover. Obviously it will as you have done it. But it looks to me that the clamps on the Invisarack would interfere with the mounting of the tonneau side rails.

That's actually a prototype kit on my truck from truxedo. I had originally tried to modify a regular superduty low pro qt and what happened was I got the rails to mount up but the header for the cover was too wide. Once you mount the rails for cover over the clamps for rack the cover needs to be like an inch and a half less in width then the standard superduty cover. So the people at truxedo helped me out. The kit involves some weather stripping that goes in between the clamps of the rack and the bed rails for the cover and then instead of clamping the bed rails you drill self tappers through the bed rails of the cover into the clamps of the rack. Pretty simple. Does that make sense?

In my opinion the newer 6.7's look bad *** no matter what u do, the GM duramax and PSD's have a mean look in my opinion, I don't like dodge for some reason it doesn't have that strong look to it, ford has the best appearance right now since the 6.4's.
But nice set up man, nice to see guys using thes trucks for a WORK truck or for towing not as a daily driver, being a diesel tech when I see thes trucks come in and turbos all carboned up and its got 30k on a 5 year old truck it makes me wanna cry expecally how they almost never get hooked up to a trailer..
Anyways sweet truck man put her to good work!
