    Let me just say when it comes to tucking away excess flap... ROLL it with the bottom bungie hook. If you just fold it up, the excess will have a tendency to slide back out the bottom going down the highway. That goes for both front and rear. Ask me how I know.

    The rolling definitely works. That's another of the things Maverick teaches.

    I also roll the sides up when I have extra. The roll of material at the bottom on the sides gets trapped better by the bungies and makes a better seal if you can't get a row of D-Rings right near the deck. I run into this mostly using my 8ft drops since the D-rings are on 2 ft centers from the bottom edge.

    A nice, clean and tight tarp job shows pride in the job. I like that.
