    Moak, It's all good.. OP asked about "on the trail" so I was just giving an alternate view point. as you said that rig was built to be a play toy and cost wasn't ever really a factor in anything I did with it ... hell it's first set of tiers, put on with only 4K on the odo, where a set of...

    What keeps you from overlanding more?

    Time/Money but not in the usual sense, yes building a rig take time and resource but slowly that all comes together if you make it a priority and I can easily do "weekends" or a few week trips (and have for years - it the normal career/vacation cycle)... My issue is I have gotten to the point I...
