i should have taken some pix of my Ram working, when i was back east on vacation

i have the short bed on my '09 ram QC 1500
i needed to haul several 2x4x12s about 20 or 30 miles
i have a soft canvas tonneau

i bought a piece of 2'X 4' 1/2" plywood & laid it on the tonneau, ( there is a large toolbox just under the canvas )
then i opened the sliding back window & laid my heavy surplus military jacket over the window track & up the sides a bit
then i started stacking the long 2x4s onto the jacket & had the other end sitting on the scrap plywood, then tied everything down with cotton clothes line.
i could just barely look over the lumber & see my right doors mirror
no lumber was more then 3' past the rear bumper
so technically i was legal
