    Your one "must have"

    What one thing that is a must have for you that most folks probably wouldn't think to bring? For me it is my Vitamix blender because I can no longer swallow food so I have to juice or puree everything I eat. It is a major PITA but I'm alive to complain about it, so it's a good trade off

    Looking at a new used rig tomorrow!

    We found a 1996 k2500 6.5 diesel suburban that looks promising. It has 195,000 miles and looks to have been pretty well cared for. Hoping for the best! !

    Any good DIY accessories?

    Has anyone built their own bumpers, racks, rock sliders, etc? I guess I am used to the Jeep world where there is a lot of DIY goodies.

    Cargo trailer conversions anyone?

    I have been looking at some 6x12 single axle cargo trailers to make a camper out of. I will be living in it full time if everything works out right, pulled by my Suburban. I am thinking of doing a spring over lift on it to help the offroadability of it. Just wondering if anyone has done...
