First post so I may as well make it about my soon to be retired "expedition rig". Compared to most of what I'm seeing here my '08 2500HD isn't much to y'all but she's been a great truck for me. Only 4" of lift. Everything else is bone stock though I have to say that the engine (diesel) still pulls great and I just replaced the rear brakes for the first time. I put 250,000 miles, give or take a few, on it in the first 3-1/2 years of it's life. She's at 268,000 and change after this years 5,000 mile loop through the Southwest and Colorado. Like all trips I take, this year was a photography expedition.
It's a crew cab truck and the rear seats don't get used much. I stash all of my camera and camping gear back there and in the bed. This pic was taken a few months ago at Mummy Cave Ruin in Canyon del Muerto, part of Canyon de Chelly.
I came to this site to try to figure out what would be a good replacement vehicle. I'm thinking something in the Tahoe / Explorer sized vehicle. Daily driver / traveler / off road. I realize that the compromise I make for on road will take away from off road but hopefully I'll find a good balance. Whatever I get it will have to deal with moderate 4WD travel and be able to carry all of my gear.
The dude in the pic is from North Carolina. He tagged along with me for two weeks and he had never been off road in his life. I changed that for him We were in Goblin Valley in UT and decided to take the "back way" out. After 12 mies if slinging mud in the rain we came to a river. The road was gone The river had eaten it. He was like "I think we can go around to the right and keep going". I think I converted him Yeah... that wasn't happening... I got out and looked. "To the right" ended in a 5' drop off into the river. We turned around...

Installed a new rear door rack/table made by Springtail Solutions.
I already had one on there for my MPAC Mole bags, but this new design also folds down into a table.
I like to explore old growth forest service roads always hunting for new camping spots, and this will come in handy for cooking a quick lunch.
You can also see my Powertank on another one of Springtails side racks, and I have another side rack ordered for the passenger side to install ARB's new dual air compressor on.

Hi all. New guy here. Just getting into the expedition thing by building storage cabinets under my camper shell on my truck.
1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 crew cab short bed. The 7.3 Powerstroke has been built to just over 400 hp, and the trans is an ATS 5 Star unit with their billet flex plate and TC. It's lifted 4" runs 35" Toyo Open Country MTs and Fox Racing 2.0 pro series reservoir shocks. She has 4.30 gears and an ARB air locker in the rear. (the front also in Dec) She is pretty capable off road for her size and weight, and very comfy day to day on the street. I've no trail rig, just this daily driver.
I just throw a twin mattress in the back, and it's camping time...

|Back Woods||Probably going to add some side tool boxes before to long, it will give it a nice look I think. Wont need any water tanks because I have a 325 gallon tank in the stock trailer and a 60 gpm water pump. Going on 31 nights sleaping in the truck and about 3500 miles.|
