Miforester you know I've never even thought about that. I always thought people ran them behind the cab for better fuel mileage. I did lose a mile to the gallon the other day, but I had over 800 lbs of extra gear people and my big dog I didn't have along last time I made the same route.Thats a good question though, I'm kind of worried about dust ending up in the box too now. I know if you threw a bucket of sawdust in the back of my 05 ram, tailgate up or down it would end up behind the cab anyway. Thanks for pointing that out, I'm going to keep an eye out on it.
