Made a level sleeping area for camping/road trips when I don't want to set up and take down a tent. Perfect for late night arrivals at trailheads, camping in stormy weather or quick overnight stayovers.

This setup can comfortably sleep 2 people up to about 6.5 feet tall and now I can fit my full size spare, that was previously on the roof, deflated where the OEM donut was. There's still room to store the factory jack, air compressor, recovery gear, and other tools. Also built a bonus pull out table for cooking and bar purposes.

The legs for the table are adjustable hiking poles, so it's simple and I don't have to be parked on a perfectly level surface for it to work. The rear OLM hatch LED light pairs nicely with this setup. Lights up the cooking area and all around, so no need for lantern or headlamp. Maybe I don't need a pickup truck afterall:
