Thanks for the advice- I realize I may be able to set up better than I have in the past. I have to carry alot of tools (hand tools, portable power tools, nail guns & air compressor, etc.) when I go out to a job, so when I'm loaded with tools I like the protection a camper shell gives from the weather and from dishonest people in the parking lot of the local Home Depot. When I need to pick up materials there's no benefit from a shell because it all sticks out the back anyway. When I have to haul big things, the shell has to come off, and those fiberglass tops just get heavier every year (I have a system to do it solo, but it's still not easy). Your comments made me start thinking the whole approach over. If I don't go with the top I definitely want those outside hooks though, so add me to the list as fer them.

Boy I sure hear ya on those toppers getting heavier every year! They make kits to add cross bars to them, don't know the load ratings, would that help? (yeah u may then need a step stool, but I need done for Blue when I wash her or work under the hood... and I'm 6-4.
I like the TR40 for interior space but want that bed length (the "workin" part of the truck) so hope the accessories show up shortly after launch so I can evaluate as a package.
cheers,

The TR40 bed would only work for my needs (hauling plywood and also 275-gallon tote tanks of oil) if it is 48" between the wheel wells. I hope that Mahindra will offer these trucks as a cab and chassis model, or better yet offer them with factory aluminum utility flatbeds. A flatbed would be perfect for many people who intend to really use these trucks for hard work. They have the payload numbers to be proud of, so please Mahindra give us factory flatbed options!
