2x3 tube for front and sides and 3in c channel for rear I still have to add the middle supports and for the coupler I will be using receiver tube so I can slide in a 2in coupler because I'm not sure how the offroad mount I'm building will work it will be built using the ears and u joints from a Toyota fork lifts hydraulic pump

Guess it must be the camera angle. I see 2x3 up front but 1x3 on the sides. Me >
In any case post updates as you go. PBB crowd likes pictures. Wife or girlfriend are worth double points.

Coupler sounds interesting.

I like that it looks good are you running a 7 pin to charge your battery also above the battery box is that just a wheather proof junction box. Thanks for the advise ill try and earn some of them double points tomorrow

Yes a 7 pin for the battery.

Simple junction box with a bussed fuse panel inside for the battery driven outlets. Two up front/back spilt on two circuits. Switches on opposite side. Voltmeter is get a rough idea of battery state.

Machine knobs allow the uprights to swing up for a canopy. Picture only shows the rear but there are two uprights per side. You get the idea I am sure.

Tray on each fender top holds a Stanley waterproof toolbox for misc. crap.
