Power connected...cables run under the seals allows the hatch to open normally...I can still remove the entire hatch by quick disconnect Deutsch connectors... still too light out for aiming...

Well...never thought a spoiler would be appropriate on a pickup but in this case, my planned RTT will still be a little higher than my roof profile. This very well designed spoiler will do the job of lifting the air stream over the tent and is quite subtle as well...Cheers:)

Yes indeed Dave, 3M around the perimeter and then get this...a full canister of 3M 540 sealant (included) to be applied on another inner channel to make sure this thing ain't flying off EVER...LOL...I chose to buy another smaller tube of marine sealant/adhesive rather than waste this big tube...:)

Nice! I was going to say I hope there's something else because when the mother ship is at warp speeds I'd hate to see it flying off. lol When's the RTT coming in?
