That would be my second free option Chris. Being a painter by trade, I tend to have a few leftovers lying around though.

You either widen the bed or narrow it as the pockets are in the top rails. If you are considering buying, I'd recommend the side board gusset kit I have. It's $225 which is expensive for what it is. A 2x12 on top of the existing sides is perfect IMO. Good bit of extra depth, but still easy to throw stuff over the sides. I have never had a reason to want to remove mine. You could use hitch pins to secure the boards to the gussets and pull 3 pins and clips to remove boards if you really felt a need.



Just my .04. .02 you wanted and .02 you didn't. Lol.

That said, the side extensions must also be taller than your 2x12's for trash dump duty. So, your system just wouldn't work for me on a few levels...
Is this the exchange in question?

you guys have any fancy methods or tools for bleeding brakes solo?
Just changed the brake hoses on my 89, and i didnt quite get all the air out with my hand powered vacuum pump.
I figured there is probably something better out there, been using vacuum pump method for years now but always wind up having to recruit someone's assistance. Tired of fighting it.

That's what I have. It works well most of the time. It didn't bleed the Jeeps brakes worth a darn. The Fiat it worked like a charm.

Does this basically clamp onto the master cylinder, and pressurize on the top end ? Sounds like pretty fool proof method. Does the reservoir hold brake fluid as well so you dont have to keep removing the cap to add fluid?

yes. Mine, you fill the master cylinder, fill the vacuum, and screw on a cap with a line to the vacuum reservoir. It constantly feeds the master cylinder fluid from the reservoir as you put build up pressure in the vacuum. This video is a gem. The car is a pile, but the technique is spot on. I just use 20psi is all. Seems to work a little better.

I've never had a lot of success vacuum bleeding air out of the brake system. Works best for freashing up the fluid. Either get a pressure bleeder, or get the wife to pump the brake pedal and bleed the old fashion way.

I use the SpeediBleeder. It works great. The ONLY downside is that it hooks up to the tire's valve stem to pressurize the tank. I think the last time I used it I used a bicycle tire instead of the vehicle's tire. That's a good work around if you don't have a compressor at home.

Be sure you clean the tank and hose each time it's used. A generous squirt of brake parts cleaner in the tank, swish it around, pressurize it and let it come out the hose. Takes just a couple minutes.

EDIT: The SpeediBleeder even worked on my ATV's brakes.

Me either, it usually gets me close and gets the fluid good and flushed. Then i recruit a friend or wife to pump pump hold to get the last of the air out. Problem is now with a 1 year old and 4 yr old the wife usually isnt available lol.
