Here is one of mine, I moved it out of the drift 2 weeks ago, it still had packed snow falling off the undercarriage yesterday. I drove it to CA and back several years ago, hit a few nice passes on the way home. I am gonna drive it more this year, it has sat for the last 5 years. Good timing for the new forum. I like it.

This is my buddies, his wife has a lifter FJCruiser, he has this van and a lifted TJ, I have a TJ. He throws the RoKon on the hitch for even more fun. He just got an Aluminess roof rack that mounts to the pop-top which I haven't got pictures of yet.



Should make for some fun trips... He's hoping to take it down to Mexico at some point.... he has yet to convince his wife that it's a good idea.

far from the coolest rover out there. it's currently getting major fender surgery, diamond axles, king coilovers in the front, and super swamper 34x9.5x16.5 tires on military hmmwv wheels. every expedition rig should have tires no larger than 35's, and the narrowest tire made. they just look right.

that commander is pretty cool looking. i didnt realize people lifted and wheeled those things. i figured it would take longer for them to catch on.

It's also my daily driver.

1980 Scout II Traveler Turbo Diesel
Stock 33 gallon Diesel tank gives it a range of between 600-700 miles and with a couple extra nato cans the range can be extended out to around 1000 miles depending on trail conditions. I've taken it on the Oregon Back Country Discovery Route and totaled 1200 miles in 8 days. While this may not be alot by expedition standards, the truck did great, didn't miss a beat and didn't have any mechanicle problems, so if I wanted to do another 1200 miles it would have been up to it. With a weeks prep time I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. I'd love to be able to just get in it and go, but being it's a daily driver I can't keep in in "bug out" trim all the time.

Future upgrades are fairly simple. I'd like to do an SOA, full cage some better bumpers, 33's and a lunch box locker of some sort and call it good. I am a firm believer in keeping it simple.
