It's not bad at all. I don't think its much heavier than the factory bed, which I didnt think was very heavy until I took off the shock absorber and tried to let it down by hand.

Cool air to the floorboard. Legs get hot down there in the summer on long rides.

Interesting.

I’ve yet to experience the excessive heat. Just started looking online and found several posts about it. Guess I’m either lucky or it just doesn’t bother me.

I’m in a FXR if that makes a difference.

Dang.

Most of my rides are short around the house. In and out in a few minutes.
Although I do hunt at least once a week (running hog dogs)out of it though, and may put 20-30 miles on in a night. Guess the cooler night temps help.

Almost 200 hours with close to 1000 miles. 2018 Pro FXR.

I'm intrigued by the hood scoop issue. Is the idea to let hot air out from behind the radiator at idle, and force cool air into it at speed? Or does it bring cooler air in at speed and dump in the foot area of the cab?

Dale, its more about the "at speed, air to the feet area". Keeps the legs cool. There are some "holes" in the firewall that let the air flow down below the dash.

Who would have thought to kill a pig by shooting it in the face with a bunch of Roman candles! Love it! Sweet flatbed too by the way!

That is bad a right there! I need that hood scoop! I noticed the heat more the other night when the wife and I ran through the neighborhood, and was thinking man this thing is about to over heat. It was dang hot! Would be interested to see how it works for you. I own the FXR for the guy that was asking about it.

Did you build the roof as well?

I’m still interested in one of those front racks ever you ever have any free time.

I will build you one this winter. I've been pretty busy this summer, but I can fix up once it cools off and I get some shop time.

A shop in El Campo built the roof.
