Updated the seating from three seats in the back facing forward to 7 in the back
1st pic is of the original seats facing forward.
I decided to turn these around facing backwards and then take two sets of troop seats to mount on the sides. I then just added E track so I could add seat belts.

The gray paint in the back is an epoxy coat over top of 1 layer of POR 15 then 2 layers of Spectrum by Second Skin sound deading material.

Next upgrades to include custom front bumper to mount my winch to, over sized fuel cell and an additional Jerry can holder on the back of the truck

Note there is already one under the truck next to the side door.

Cool, love the Pinz. What all are you going to set it up with? What are your travel/camping plans?

I am going with my son in August to the yucatan peninsulafor 26 days, leaving from Tacoma WA.
I will be fashoning rack brackets on each side to string Hennesy expedition hammocks from front to back.
Inside just an addition of an electric cooler

No better purpose than that, they are only young for so many years.

Not sure but 500 lbs of people on the roof don't seem to be a problem. I made 4 more legs for the rack to better distribute the weight, just need to weld them on if it becomes neccessary. They are made out of 4" x 1/4" bar stock with .120" clamps

Last off topic, but from one vw guy to another here is a glimpse of my favorite VW toy. I have had this one for 12 years now. Will be the cover car for Griot's cataloge in July

Here is my expedition truck. I has an armored rear bumper with two jerry can holders,usually water as I already have the 30gallon armored fuel tank and 5 gallon gas can.


If size is not a problem than my friend Mark runs this one

Steve, didn't know you you were over here as well.

for those that don't know 6x6, Mr. Dilley is a pioneer when it comes to Pinzgauers. The mods on his current truck are extensive.

Geez, if only we had a thread for this sort of thing or something, maybe other people's build threads would stay on topic.
