I didn't see the Thermal Pack (liner) in the options list.  This makes a big difference keeping the inside a bit cooler in the summer (not as HOT) and definitely warmer in the winter.  I did not order my Hawk with the Thermal Pack.  After seeing it in use, I ordered the pack and installed it myself.  There is an excellent "how to" in this sub-forum.

 

FWC charges for change orders.  But, you have a 2 week old order so you never know...

Speaking of generators, generac has come out with a 2k inverter model supposedly quieter than the honda. They've been around a long time, might be worth a look. Price is intriguing too.

Which generator are you planning on using to power the AC?  I'm curious because I'm looking at different post-purchase AC options.

 

Thanks

Excellent!  You will love the platform of a FWC to take you and your 1DX out in the field for outings.

Bombsight,       Congrats on the order.

 

I placed mine two weeks ago. Almost same options but on a Raven. I have the 1500 All Terrain with the 5'9" bed. Wish I had the longer bed for the Hawk but will make do.  I also ordered the AC, live in Florida and drive to Dallas (I'm from there) a lot. I will need it.

Good looking truck, mine is a 2014.

Bombsight,  is that a factory back up camera? And if so, where did you order it? Looking at doing something similar instead of re routing the one on the tailgate.
