Greg_Volkman here's my start: 1965 stevens M-416. Just finished a complete tear-down to bare steel and repaint of entire trailer. Thinking about a roof top tent for the trailer when I get home from Afghanistan (11 days!!!), with a spring over and 35" tires coming.

pappawheely Sold the pop-up camper so it's back to a shell until I get my box built out.

monkeybucket G'day lads n ladies from down under... been flicking through this and am blown away by some of the awesome rigs on here...

Here is me (what we call) Toyota 76 series V8 Landcruiser. Gets the family out n about.



They have a problem with the wheel track being 95mm wider at the front so am getting a housing and axles made up for the back to match the wheel tracks on the front.

Rocky Awesome Jeep, do you have a link for the top?
03-06-2015 12:42 PM
Mr. Mindless all those pics are 1x1 black pixels from here, so no idea what image you're talking about - but one advantage of storebought firewood is it can be transported as long as it's kiln-dried. Your own seasoned wood can't move in a lot of places - due to emerald ash borer around here. I think they allow 50 miles of transport?

He ran out or his got wet? Or maybe he lives in a city and uses his rig to go enjoy nature?

Love that LJ !
Thanks Wesfab, I have spoke to the owner and he does not care. Some of the shortcomings have been addressed by me but for a $2000 top I would expect it to fit correctly and not leak worse than a soft top. I added rain gutters and some fiber glass work and at least the rain stays out now.

swickwake Still working on the truck when I can and traveling with it when I'm not working on it. The latest trip was to KOH to help out. spent 4 night living in the bed of the truck. It sure was nice to roll up where ever I wanted and call it a night.

Its a GR8TOP, their extended version. Leaks like crazy, going to build some rain gutters and paint it soon. Not a good company to deal with and they dont stand behind their products...

LucasLeader New to me 2001 Ram 1500. Rear limited slip, front locker, rebuilt transmission with 10 year warranty (Done March 2014). Going to start working on a simple sleeping platform, might do some better shocks. I ride dirtbikes so I need to find a good hitch carrier. I might look into doing a swing out carrier so I can get in and out of the bed without unloading the bike.

Mods to truck:
-Carli Dominator 3" (3.0" king reservoir shocks, progressive coils/leafs, control arms, sway bar) with 35" toyo m/ts and steel wheels (you cant hammer alloys back round)
-Power wagon factory E-Locker - 2500/3500 diesel trucks have the same AAM 9.25 front axle so the carriers swap (PM me for technical details if you go this route)
-Factory LSD rear - If you have a factory open diff, I would suggest a posi instead. The LSD is great for the street but gets overpowered in the rough stuff.
-Edge Juice w/ Attitude - not necessary for most offroading, but handy in desert/sand. Mostly handy for the various extra gauge displays.
-Plate steel bumpers with 12k lb winch up front
-Rock sliders (2x6 .25" wall rectangle tube with 2" DOM supports and plate gussets)
-Carli HD Balljoints and diff guard
-OBA - sliders are drilled and tapped for quick disconnects and air supply lines
-12v Edgestar FP430 fridge, 43quarts
-Synergy suspension steering box brace
-Synergy Sit shower shave kit - 12v pump and heat exchanger in line with heater core for showering. Also comes with camp toilet and wag bags for use as required by park regs.
-CVT Mt Rainier roof tent - I wish i would have gone a bit smaller. this tent is as wide as the truck and was a PITA in certain tight, off camber spots and with low hanging branches.
-Contractor topper and ladder rack, Coleman Rendezvous stove, 20lb propane tank, tools, wiring supplies, recovery eqpt, full spare set of TREs (which i needed 2 of), 5 extra gallons fuel, 5-20 gallons water

Carli front end truss to be installed this weekend after the front end was straightend up 3/8" back to square and rebuilt due to an incident with a cliff this spring in Baja, shown below...
