i measured it out and this mattress in a Full, or Full XL for extra length would fit:

Reviews seem decent. I'm probably gonna snag one in a full.

This one looks like literally the same image but lower price.

This is equal-length trifold and you can get a zippered storage case for it which is sort of cool if you're into tidy storage.

I'm probably not replacing  mine (I think it was like $20 on clearance when I got it to fit my other truck) but it will be cool to see what works best if you or anyone else goes this route.    I store mine by standing it up vertically behind my spare room futon like as if it's some sort of wall pad thing.

Just some subtle differences from stock.

It's about to get more nice! 

I think so far money's already been dropped on:

ADD Kingpin
All new control arms, TRE's, ball joints, etc
All the good stuff for timing belt/water pump
Radiator restoration
Bling Wheels
Fancy Tires
Every liquid substance except A/C
Variety of replacement details like missing or damaged covers/caps/etc  (example, the high pressure A/C service port cap was missing..  replacement purchased)
Replacement Shocks (I think... he might be holding out for Bilsteins)
White Ball t-case shifter
Driver side power door lock
Replacement alarm/remote keyless entry/etc


We have to now actually install all that.    I've done engine oil, transmission drain/refill, transfer case and front diff lube so far as well as phase 1 radiator flushing and small incidental repair/correction stuff,  running board deletion,  and a bunch of undercarriage degacking.
