To further my previous point; shut the fuck up about this already. If you don't like a rig that's posted, skip by it and keep on looking. Fuck's sake. If you're looking through a 50+ page thread already, chances are you got a bit of time on your hands.
Yeees preach the tolerance.... That is what pirate is all about.

Converted Volvo TGB1315, radio car. All rigged up with solar and diesel furnace and hot water heater, also heats the engine, outside shower and a second hookup with hot water for an outside kitchen. Table that converts to a bed, big fridge and sink. Tons of storage. Portal axles with selectable lockers on all three. A little slow and underpowered but should get me to the very ends of the FSRs with the best fishing.
Cool Rig.

If you are off the beaten path a little slow and under powered is no big deal.

If you homo's are into totally stock vehicles, you don't belong on pirate. You guys should visit a new car lot and circle jerk on a KIA or something.

If your vehicle does not have the systems in place for self sustained long distance travel, it does not belong in this thread.
I'd add modified suspension for traversing wilderness because by your definition these are expo vehicle..




And I'm pretty sure no one here would consider that a expo vehicle. Most people think of something like this ( or at least i do)>

There isn't really anywhere in the U.S. that you could possibly need an African/Sahara style expo rig anyway. How far could you ever really be from a gas station or 7-11. Lighten up.

An expedition vehicle is built/modified for that purpose. Google it. The point of the thread is to see those types of modifications. Not look at some stock piece of shit you imagine could drive on dirt.

BINGO...that's what I want. Either a radio or ambulance rig. They're robust. I need to get to Sweden and test-drive a few, then pull the trigger.

DJ404564X4 My precious...

1972, 350, 4 speed stick, Dana 44, 12bolt.

Plan is to go through her and replace most, everything...

Keeping the carb and points so if I break in the middle of nowhere I can fix it. Interior will be setup for camping. Friend wants to race in the Dakar so we will spend weekends getting lost in the Mojave desert to better his navigation skills.
