        it still has the same length bed as any other ccsb and you are not required to open the midgate to use the bed normally, like any other ccsb. it merely opens up the option of carrying longer things. the white leather is also not standard, you can get it with black instead.

          Why? You can't access it if there's something in the bed lying over the hatch. The need to unload your cargo to get a spare if you have a flat tire is plainly moronic, it's something you expect from a car, not a truck.
          Besides that, all the dirt and water easily gets inside at least once you open it or anyway if the seals aren't that good (remember, it's the bed we're talking about, so heavy things lie or sometimes even fall on it).

            The way I have it set up is the following:
            I have my strap down harnesses, ramps, and tools always there.
            For track day, I throw take out the harness and ramp and load up the motorcycle. Unfortunately you're right I can't put the ramp back in the trunk, but I just tie it down and it's all good.
            This is better than not having that trunk at all and always having to have it either at home, unsecured in the bed or in the cabin of my truck.

            The Avalanche had it better with lockable side storage that is available at all times unless you install a bed cap. RAM kind of copied it with the RamBox. I usually put fire extinguishers, recovery gear and some other tools there. Know people who put ice and drinks there instead. The opening is kind of tight though, but I believe it's because of the structural D-pillar needed for the midgate.

        It's not a problem when it's rolling, that I've noticed - but if you left it open all day parked yeah shit'll get in there.

        Though if you had the horrid panels on it'd be minimal I guess (So you had from the tailgate to the dash but covered). Not tried it like that though.

      Yep, but if you want a firm bed cover you can take with you removed, it's either the panels or that thing they made for the Envoy XUV, I guess.

      Replace the word "all" with the word "some" and it will start to make sense you're looking for.
      The original Avalanche didn't came with white interiors iirc. On the contrary, the leather ones were pretty rugged and I remember at least one outdoor gear themed option.

            I would never open that open if I had an avalanche. The amount of dust and crap that would enter the cabin would be unbearable. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool idea.

            I wonder if they could design an airfoil that deploys on the back of the cab to prevent most blowback? Seems like something a super computer simulation and some wind tunnel testing could try to solve.

            Alternately, attach a folding lexan panel to the seat backs of the back row that can latch to mounting points between the front and back of the cab. Like a limo separator.

            Still not sure how that would work honestly... Maybe if you had no cargo going into the cabin, I guess, but that's not really the point of the extension.

            I mean both replies are ridiculous, as if you guys never tried driving with windows down or participating even in mild off roading (which usually gets down to you being in and out of the truck while being dirty, the dust/dirt flying near the open windows and so on). The trucks are meant for that, especially the truck in question given all its features and ad campaign.
            Or, as another poster aptly noticed, the convertibles. If that's "unbearable" for you, better tell that to your psychiatrist, not to us. It's not by any means normal.
