    OB weekend in the fall?

    Perfect. Sounds like a great spot. I can't wait to meet everyone. If we can convince Mr OverlandBound to come up that would make it official. "wink wink" ;))

    2010 Silverado 2500HD Hauler/Overland Rig

    Nice looking truck, how does your travel trailer tow with the lift? I've heard it can make things a bit more difficult so I have not pulled the trigger on any suspension upgrades yet.

    2010 Silverado 2500HD Hauler/Overland Rig

    Little update, While the mechanical's and maintenance are under way I did not want to let the season get past me so I snagged a Kodiak Canvas truck bed tent and this will be my main set up for sleeping. This tent provides an amazing amount of livable space in the back of the truck for under...

    2013 Silverado - "The Raven"

    Great looking rig, you can never go wrong with a black Chevy. What is the weight capacity of the platform on top of the topper?
