everyone build your rig the best you can and go out and use it. never mind the crap talkers in the world.
i will post up some pics when i finish the big truck.

D-RAT My previous one (sale pending) - '98 Frontier, D44, ARBs front and rear, 3.92:1 Calmini Crawlers, countless other mods:

(This was on our last AZ Run - might still find a link on Fourwheeler.com for this trip last fall)




Here's what I'm building. It's a '77 F150. Doesn't have bumpers yet but will have a swing away bronco bumper. 3 storage boxes in the bed, and will get built out further. Fresh 5" lift, 35s, Detroit rear, True Trac front, Upgraded axle shafts in both ends, NP435 trans behind a 351 with a 205 case.

mikecj5cj8 My setup, but have a ways to go. This pic is from Sierra Trek last Summer. 08 Tacoma, 9000lb Warn Winch up front..having some rock sliders made soon but, it will be a mild build. The trailer is a 1970's or so Pack Mule trailer. It pulls easily behind my truck.

Thanks for that, i've been out of touch for a while, computer died and never really bothered till now to get it fixed.

Still sorting a few minor issues out, had no low range, as i have a nissan patrol transfer case mated to the allison, i had a speed sensor in the wrong spot, got it fixed over the weekend. Just had to drill a hole in the transmission and tap it for the sensor.

Been getting a low fuel pressure warning, only does it first time i drive it for the day, last's for about 15 mins then goes away, doesn't come back till i really labour it up a hill. If i change rpm's it is fine.

Have changed the fuel tank changeover solenoid(severley restricts flow), still there, not as bad though.

Changing the tank pickups this weekend, just got to take them both off, drill old ones out, tap and install new custom bigger pickups.

That's a super nice setup you have! Hella large powerfilm panel. Very nice rig you have there! It sure is nice being able to charge phones/cameras/laptop and run a little fridge without having to run the engine!

Thanks, yes, the rig has changed quite a bit since that pic.
Have an ARB bumper on the rear now, Factor 55 fairlead instead of the roller, ARB Intensity LED lamps, Hi-Lift angled up so my headlight can shine better, etc.
This pic was from last Sunday, I was doing some work on the tent.

I also have one of those suitcase style 100 watt units for keeping an ArkPak setup topped off.
The latter is used to recharge camera batteries, LED lighting around camp, etc.

This pic was shot with the tent on the factory rack, I now have a lower profile BajaRack.

Absolutely love the idea of traveling the USA for a couple of months in a vehicle. Very jealous. That's one thing we wanted to do before having kids but never worked out with our careers.
