Are there plans for any padding? If you and her like it great! Doesn't look comfortable at all.

You should have used part of the bed as the seat area.
I dig it otherwise

Does she run those 25 miles...away from you?

Bench looks like standard issue comfy, for inmates. Maybe you should snap a pic or two and send them to Jackson State, they may order some!

I was expecting the gazebo to be made from a truck cap.

Cool bench!

X2 on the padding.

Maybe spin the gate around so the GMC faces out into the yard and pad the back with some sweet, retro saddle blanket style seat covers.

They'd have that tailgate turned into a shiv in no time.

Did it come with a Tetanus booster?

Actually it looks neat, but not very comfortable.

For some reason to me it looks like you are keeping that dog under a heat lamp and ready to serve him as food.
