Added LED Strip lights to the rear. The rear hatch light is weak and gets blocked by my stuff anyway. This will be a huge help for night skiing and camping. See post for more details: Rear Hatch Floodlight Idea.....

Are you actually using a CB?
Yeah, when I can. I'll use it when running with other groups sometimes. I carry HAM, CB, and GRMS radios and never feel like I get to use one more than the other which is annoying. CB I mostly listen in when on the snowy mountain passes and traffic is a cluster F - truckers keep me updated to what is happening better than anything else

I’ve had the same experience. My CB has been a handy tool quite a few times while driving over mountain passes here in Colorado during storms. Truckers can be super helpful calling out real-time snow/road conditions.
Also, I might have to copy you LED strip mod for the back. Looks awesome and simple, specially helpful when night skiing.

Took my canoe mounts off the top. Decided it was probably time given that I haven't used my canoe since August of 2018 and won't until sprint 2020...


Here's how they held up.


Also a couple pics on how the Dephep is holding up. I rarely carry stuff in it. Powder coat doesn't seem to be holding up well around the grate.


Under the canoe mount L-brackets:

Scrap it and get an expedition one rack that doesn’t rust.
