I don't have much room to keep my gear. I have an ECSB truck, and I keep all my gear in my bed. I recently bought a tonneau cover last week. It is a Lund tri-fold. It was a good deal and I got it right before I left for Silver Lake (had it on in 5 minutes, then hit the road!). I always bring my tools, and my crate of oils, lubes, and PB Blaster. So I have almost a full 6.5' bed to work with. I don't like keeping gear in the cab. It's nice to not have to look at all the clutter in the back seat.

I use a cooler and ice to keep my food cold (like most of you I'm assuming). Is there a way to keep the food cold, but keep it dry? I know that can be accomplished by just draining the water from the ice melting from the cooler, but is there a different way? Say putting the ice in big zip lock bags? I had mayo and relish in the cooler, and forgot to drain the water, and when I unpacked, all the labels were peeling off. It's not a big deal, but it got me to thinking of an alternative way to keep the food cold and out of water.
