I would agree with @El-Dracho. The therm-a-rest is good in most conditions. The down side to the self inflating materials is they usually are made of open-cell foam. Using a closed-cell foam mattress under the self inflating mattress will add insulation from the ground and additional padding.
Your JT looks good! I’d like to see a closer pic of the bumper set up. Definitely have dragged a$$ on a trail or 2. Most bumpers I have seen don’t give much extra clearance.
I’m concentrating on the camping setup right now. Perhaps a lift, 35s, bumpers and winch in the future.
My rig’s name is Eventyr. It means adventure in Norwegian. My eventual goal is to do decals with a Norwegian/Viking theme. So in keeping with that theme, my dashboard co-pilot is a LEGO Thor. My son - and navigator (he’s 7 now) - has been into LEGOs for years.

I’m setting up my ‘21 Gladiator for camping inside the bed. Check out TrailRecon YouTube channel. Brad has lots of great videos with other peoples setups so you can see what they have come up with - from ground tents and plastic bags to cabinets and RTTs. It all depends on your budget, time, and...
I hit Old 105 a few weekends ago. Lots of good campsites along the “trail” - more like a gravel road. Not at all difficult. Forest Road 106 offers a little more rough road, but is not difficult either. I’d like to go back when the weather is clear to stop and see the views.
Glad to see precautions being taken. Here in the states - particularly the South East - it seems no one is taking Covid seriously at all. More often than not I’m the only one wearing a mask - indoors or out.
Be safe and have a great holiday!
