This is GREAT advertising for their company. I really hope they see this and clean up their act.

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...

thats what ive been thinking; maybe a 3' and some 265s with a nice set of shocks, and then a bit of belly armor. eventually, id tuck the tank and put the spare off the back.

I had a 2000 with the 4.0, and had to sell it to get a commuter car a few years back. well the commute shortened up, and the hunt was on. got it with 88k, one owner.

Check out ARB USA. They make one of the best awnings I've ever used.
