    Had a nice piece of cedar left over from a table I made a while back so I decided to use it as a divider/organizer. Since I will have a car seat installed for quite some time I figured relocating the jack and accessories here would be a good idea too. So far after several days of vigorous driving, nothing has budged! Used 12 inch velcro straps from amazon and a single flat wood screw for each strap by the buckle. The cedar scent whenever I open the tail gate is a nice bonus.

    Wife hit the drywall so I hung a chicken that touches the w/s . She still hit the wall so I put a board on the floor. She still has a problem with left and right. My grandpa put a big stop sign on the end of his garage. Still looking for adjustable braking parking system. Ps the chicken was rubber. :shock:

    It is speed related. When I was trying out the Trail Control I set my speed to 4mph put it in reverse then back in drive and the camera stayed on. Now you have the camera on and can see behind you which comes in handy if you're with a group or just want to see what that big "Thud" was you just went over.:whew:

    That is a cool idea - I think I read/heard that it goes off at 5 MPH.

    It is nice to have it stay on a bit after you go forward.

    My yeti travel coffee mugs didnt fit in the dinky cupholders so i trimmed down a yeti handle and stuck to the dash bin. A spirited driving test resulted in no spilled coffee!

    Nice! How is it attached? Double-sided tape?

    I just drive around with one of these on my head... 4844578838_3ba6a88fc8_n.jpg

    Couldn't do that in a taco with the atrocious head room.
