My fantasy rig courtesy of fred williams.

Add a cargo rack and we're good to go... ski mobile, expedition rig, love shack and endless possibilities...

nice photochop on the FC Jeep above, but that would be a top heavy/tippy bitch on anything off road. If you want that space and size, just get a (insert size and make) van and make it 4WD.

If you want a fwd control 4x4, why not just build an early Dodge, Chevy, or Ford van It would be much cheaper and faster than waiting for Jeep to build that ^^

They almost died, but they also weren't A) in good shape and B) used to the altitude. Who knows, the guy who went to 17k feet may have lived at a place thats 10k feet.

That guy is me..., and no, I donīt leeve at 10k.
I live in Santiago, Chile, which is at 1750 ft.
I was worried about how it will affect me, but all in all, I did pretty good. Even as a pilot, this was my first time at that height. Only problem was a heavy headache by the time I went back to 2K.
Regarding the truck, it did great. I tried the different settings on the Bullydog and in all of them it felt very strong.

I know it was you. I was just being lazy. And of course I have no idea where exactly you live, I was just suggesting that it was a possibility.

That is exactly the route I'm taking my 05' right now. I want to make a rear rack that moves the top of the tent down a little closer to cab height, and then maybe a kayak could fit over it.

Just went through all the pics, some awesome stuff here! But some push the definition of "Expedition vehicles".

I'm not posting mine, but it has a roof rack, snorkel, and ARB fridge so it seems like I could

If you don't like the "Expedition Vehicles" title. How about the "Ex-Boyscouts who like KTM's, are scared of Zombies and carry a Leatherman daily" Thread? I'd watch it anyway, good job guys keep the Mogs coming!
