F 150 starter truck

Im new to the expedition side of wheeling , but i love the aspects of pre running and crawling and want a mix of both with the ability of camping and being out in the woods for a while. So i have an 88 F150 with a SAS HP44/9", 35" Goodyear MT/Rs and a tube bed and need figure out what it would take to be capable to make this solid or expedition style wheeling. Im looking for more of the gear it should have for up to a week of fun. From what ive seen its everything you would need for day times alot and everything else that could pile on. Any help is great since the snow is melting and its almost time to get movin again

Depends on everything. Figure out where you are going... how far you are from supply etc. There is no list of shit you need to leave your front door. Just take what you think you will need and write down what you missed... and take that the next time. The only real requirements are basic survival stuff for worst case scenarios.

Is it going to be cold? bring stuff that can keep you warm

Do you like to eat? bring stuff you can eat or provisions for finding

Do you like to drink? bring liquids

It is nothign complex.
