    2018 Raptor Overland build

    Well the suspension is still “under construction” so to speak. My local Shop had a couple issues on the shocks rebuild that were outside of everyone’s control and a couple of additional parts are on back order but they are working through it! Should have that all wrapped by end of next week as...

    I wish, but an fortunately it has just been crazy the past few weeks with work and all that is going on in the world. We provide support for disaster and refugee relief so nothing but work, work, work. I will say that in a couple of weeks I will have a huge update on the truck! Lots of work...

    That looks great! I like that it integrates with the bed cover. I just noticed you were in WY. I grew up in Casper! Where are you headed to this weekend? I dropped off my iKamper to get sprayed with LineX for some added protection this AM, should pick it up tomorrow or Wednesday. I’ll post up a...

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    No updates as of now. Just got back from 2 weeks of work travel and getting ready to hit the road again. Hoping to have the shocks done this month but looking unlikely due to travel. Post some pics of the rack once it’s on!

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    I would definitely get the 3.0’s tuned to the truck if I went that way as they are traditionally set up for high speed from the factory and I am not running Baja. Although, I am also not crawling the trails in 4 low all the time either, she still stretches her legs every once in a while. I made...

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    Option 1 is going to 3” remote reservoir shocks. Really lookinghard at the Icon system with new UCA’s and getting them custom tuned for my use. I already have the Icon rear leaf springs. The sway away shocks from AFE has also caught my attention and I am researching them currently. Option 2 I am...

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    It is coming along. I still want to get the full suspension done, selling some other “toys” to free up the cash! I would not say I am a guru at all, just trying to improve items that fall short after each trip out until it’s done haha. I do a lot of research and pull from the true gurus on other...

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    Sorry for the slow reply, been super busy at work! I did get the awning mounted but not the rhino rack as the shipping got messed up and delays due to Covid. I was able to get a 23Zero 270 from CB Adventure supply (amazing company to order from) I used the supplied mounts from 23Zero (which are...

    2018 Raptor Overland build

    Thanks! The leitner rack is awesome! Did you get the forged or standard ACS? I have a viair pump that is not mounted just stored. Down the road I would like to get an ARB twin and mount it. Share pics if you get it set up! My next investment is going to be a Jackery in one of the cubes and...

    it is Cute lol, until I follow a buddy in a jeep down a 2 track and then it shows just how wide it is! I had a 2.5” pin top with LCA’s and full Seaver leaf springs and airbags in daystar cups, paired with Method wheels and 37x12.5 Toyo RT’s. If I did it again I would have gone a full...
