It would also require a shit load of cutting since the Rovers don't exactly make a platform that is easy to convert to a rock crawler.

Well heres my little rover Rig.

Sportin Rovertym 4" lift with Land Cruiser OME shocks
Rovertracks "BEEFY" steering with OME Damper
Custom Rear bumper.
Procomp "Rock Crawler" series 87 15" Steel Wheels
BFG Mud Terrains 33x10.50R15.

I'm more of the rock crawling hence why the body has been cut in the rear
however I love expedition rigs I like seeing expo and rock crawling rigs together.

^^^That is awsome but looks like the tires would move about 2in up before rubbing on the fenders....Maybe the tires are uselessly oversized?

Seen that Mog on eBay a few times, very cool rig, but how do you get the tire up onto the roof, 14.5r20s aren't exactly a lightweight tire, nor are they easy to manhandle.

I'd take a 454 over a Chevy diesel any day and twice on Sunday. That would not have been a Durmax Adam. 6.2s are shit. In my ever humble opinion of course

I actually have an '06 CTD quad cab 4x4 also, with a popup on it. It's been a good truck to tow the my other rig with, the Toyota. With diesel being about $5.00 and the wife and trying to have a kid, It's all going away. Sold the pop up on the dodge, the dodge should be leaving this weekend and the toyota is for sale. Figure I'll run this chevy, buy an ATV and then build our JK. I should come out about 700-800 ahead every month and still have all the toys.

88YJ with a chevy 5.7, nv4500 and 4.3 aII. Trailer is a 49(ish) M100 with the same bolt pattern as the YJ so no extra spare to carry, bed slide, freezer/fridge. It's got a Maggiolina mounted on it. It's been over most of the SW and I'm wanting to head to baja and copper canyon in mexico. As soon as I can figure out how to stop it from rolling

It's a litecraft.

very similar to this, obviously not as new. The floorplan is different. I think the PO had it "custom" built.

Here's mine, when I first started building it, I wasn't quite sure what it was really going to be, but I know that I wanted a solid drivetrain, room for the wife and kids, streetable and plenty of cargo room. The planned usage was for mild trails and camping over long distances, little that I knew at the time there was something called an expedition rig...

It still needs some more additions, namely some kind of shelter along with some communication devices and dedicated tool / food storage locations, the giant toolbox holds alot but it isn't very user friendly, also need some more lighting and with the powertrain, some additional fuel storage capacity, 38 gallons goes fast. I'm also thinking that I got it a bit to high, ideally it could stand to be a few inches lower.

1990 F350, D60 open, 14Bolt - Detroit, 460, T18 4 speed, BW1356 t-case, 37x13.50R17 Toyos + fullsize spare, Mile Marker 10.5k lb hydraulic winch.

Hardcore off-road in the backyard...
