After months of searching, and 4 weeks of arranging with an out of state (and very patient) seller for pick-up and method of payment, I'm finally home with my '08 Hawk!!!!! Seems well taken care of and I am very happy with my purchase. I ended up setting up my truck beforehand with the install kit and used the FWC supplied tie-downs w/supplied eye bolts. This forum thus far has been immensely helpful to me...and actually how a seller found me. I've had great and useful feedback on all of my posts.
Now that I'm home with it, figuring out the next steps.
1. Saw-horses for storage, looks like there are few really great posts on this
2. Electrical-looks a little daunting doing the truck electrical install, I have the directions from FWC and reviewed stan's video, and may give it a go, but thinking about having a professional do it....just not sure where to look, although there is a dealer 4 hours away from me.
3. Solar- trying to determine if it is pre-wired? Any help on that would be greatly appreciated. It is a '08 and there is nothing on the option list that suggests it would be.
4. Get some bike and rod racks and start having fun!
Any other advice/recommendations would be very helpful.
