Still a work iin progress, and at the rate my finances are going, may be another 13 years before its done.
Right now AMC 360, th400, doubler, and D60/welded 14b. Will have H.A.D. 1410 drive shafts soon, then it will actually drive so I can get moving on everything else.


In case you wonder why so much clearance above the tires, it still rubs fully flexed......................


Thinking I might bob the ass later........ she does have a BIG ass.............


Got everything for....
OBA, dual snorkles, XRC12 winch, full skids on the belly, and most the stuff for a home brew OBW.
Also going in at some point, among other things ......
TBI, stroked 401 w/ full roller valvetrain, engle fridge, a pull out sunshade off of one side, swing down tire/jerry can/high lift carrier, and ............yep, a hot shower.
Not to mention all the normal camping gear, tools, and spare parts.

My estimates put her weighing in around ~5500lbs when done, before I load up any gear.

Nice build! I like the creative use of the TJ flares!

No build thread, yet, not a lot of stuff that hasnt been done before. Just putting a lot of tricks to use on the same rig. Figure I'll keep taking pics, and post a build when its rolling.

Wont be that far into the doors, about 3/4 of the door below that body line is just folded up sheet metal lip. Only raising the sill plate about 1.5", cant make it too hard for the little wife to get in.

Fun part in gona be keeping it all lined up and straight when I cut the whole rocker section (full of cancer) and door sill plate out to do it.

Does a week on Dusy-Ershim in late October count as an expedition?

My expedition vehicle is my Dodge Ram, which is pretty close to stock, but I take it, and my truck bed tent, and explore the outdoors.. I thought that was the whole idea behind it? Just because I don't have every bell and whistle out there on my truck, does that mean I don't get to go exploring?

Here is my opinion on it.

Going on an expedition is going away for a week or more in a place you have never been and most likely will never go through again, through tough terrain and remote places.

Now just loading up the truck and going out for the weekend randomly is more of a camping trip. But I agree on the whole bells and whistles thing, but that's a poor stereotype created from expedition portal, I know whenever I'm gone for a week or two that I don't have much more then a cooler with food and a few crates/buckets.

Just my opinion though, it's what separates the difference between camping and an expedition.

He's just fluffing his story. There's several HEMTTs in private hands. Matter of fact, there's 5 MK48 power units for the PLS (a HEMTT variant) up for auction soon. I personally owned a MK17 unit that would have worked great with the MK48. But it just wasn't in the cards since the MK48's coming up are out in California.

Nice job, I realize the original post is fairly old, but I would like to commend you as not many people can design, wire and plumb as neatly as you have.

Here is the link of how we built our camper. It took 5 weeks to build and about $7000. It is warm, stout and comfortable.

Here is my latest, dialed in for two people and it did good for a few weeks around Death Valley.

There is more to the bike than you can really see, the only thing left of the BMW is the engine/trans/swingarm/rear-end/rear-wheel/gas-tank. Took so much crap off of it that it's 100 pounds lighter.

On a plywood sleeping platform and with a jumbled mess of tupperware? Impossible. That's not an expedition vehicle... haha. We all get so hungup on the goddamn stuff.
