.Thanks. Work in progress. What keeps me up at night is weight. I'm working on that slowly... anything 'light' is 'expensive' of course.
Grubworm, great looking rig. What bed shell and trailer are you you running?my last truck was a f-350 super duty with 8' bed, so when i bought the tundra, i didn't consider it a "full size" pickup, but i guess it is. the tundra has turned out to be the perfect size for the way we overland....it has a better turning radius than the f-350 and is a good bit shorter, but still can carry a good bit of gear and i can stretch out completely in the back with no problems. with the shell, cargo rack and swing out carrier, i can carry everything we need to make extended trips, even in very remote areas.
and when coupled with the small camp trailer, it makes a great base camp/exploring set up

Looks like a pretty sweet setup, you should make a thread on it. Any neat places you have taken it?Wish I would’ve kept a thread on the build process but this is my 2005 Ford F-150 (2WD) that is my weekend and vacation overland rig as well as my daily driver. I use this truck for small weekend trips and longer vacation trips when I have the time and will soon be getting a locker to get to some of the harder to reach spots now that I’m using it more. It’s currently leveled with Bilstien shocks and has 34” Wrangler Duratracs. I have a second battery in the rear where I removed one of my seats. Charging that battery is a renogy solar charger and 100W solar panel. This is where I run my cell booster and small electronics while on the trail. If anyone has any questions I’d be glad to answer them!
I’m planning on making a thread because I know things like my solar setup and universal ARB setup would help some people. Challenging building an older rig that doesn’t have custom fit parts. Lot of trial and error.Looks like a pretty sweet setup, you should make a thread on it. Any neat places you have taken it?
