    I use the bed for the roof.

    As for the hood, you can use the tire step. Helpful for working on the engine as well.

    I'm only 5'8", so I need all the help I can get. lol

    I found the Werner AP-30 300# rated larger platform after a search online... picked one up today on my way home from work. In my search this was the best price I found local. The guy gave me a discount on it... ended up being $66. and change out the door.

    I told my wife it was an early Father's Day present... and thank you!

    I have a 6 foot ladder I pull out. Easy and no problems cleaning roof. Or I climb into the bed and do it.
