Took off my old rack for a leitner design active cargo system... One side will have a cargo pod and a set of tan matrax and the other side will have a cargo pod and some rotopax..... Should look and function great...

Shit..... My truck just saw this and my wallet just got lighter. Love the Generals, about to go with the AT 2's but i love the red letter Grabers. Sir you have done about everything i would like to do and have not been able to justify yet.
What leveling kit you go with? I have been leaning towards the Bilstein leveling shocks up front instead of inserts. Not going to go up in tire size just leveling as dont do allot of wheeling in the mid-west.
Very nice build sir, my hats off to you.

I love seeing full size Overland rigs. I'm talking my step-dad into building his 2002 Chevy Tahoe into one.

Something tells me that this @cvttents summit series tent is going to be big!

I love your truck man, I've been considering a full size rig to use as a DD to augment my Cruiser. I have a thing for the rack systems. How much impact to your mileage has the wheel/tire combo and rack caused?

In Stock form I was getting about 19mpg. With everything on my truck I'm getting 16mpg

Wow, that's a significant drop, I get 15-16 in my cruiser with the rack and 33's.
You also have to remember that I carry all my gear at all times. That's a while lot of weight. I will sacrifice mpg for more power as well...
He's running 35's. I'm not surprised. That's actually better than my friends Raptor with 35's.
Well said. My tires also play a big role in my mpg

So far I like them. They do great in the desert. Not sure how they do in the mud yet

Yeah i figured you kept her loaded down. I kind of do a hybrid, where I have a 3 day stock on board at all times and tailor to the plan for longer stuff. Weight is a real challenge with trucks like this, mine runs 6K.

BL, its a bad ass truck man.
