I’m calling this platform V1.0 aka scraptastic. Before I went all out on shelves and a foldable platform I wanted to see how much I like where things are . 526AD201-72C9-4EAA-99F5-D371FD2A82A7.jpeg

Need to really rework the sleeping platform and look into a better mattress setup , dang one I had leaked and only held air for 3-4 hours . Other than a lack of sleep great weekend out with the little lady . Saw some amazing fall colors , some snow , had great drinks and came up with some clever ideas for platform V.2.0.
The ride quality has improved dramatically getting rid of the airbags , can’t wait to get new shocks on it .

I think with a 1.25” wheel spacer and some aggressive trimming and reworking of the firewall it would work but I don’t feel like going through the effort , to much other crap to do so going with 255/80r17 .B0C394CB-B442-4CBA-9F6D-B48031DE0528.jpeg

Thank you , I was originally going to go with a single box with long drawers but drawer slides in the 4’ range are like 160$ or more a pair and I didn’t feel like spending 400$+ for the setup .
