IMG_1115.JPG From Battle Mountain, Nevada. I have more vehicles and projects than anyone should have at any time. I've been camping and overlanding my entire life. Anyway my minimalist overlanding vehicle is my can am. I find using this more challenging to see how far I can go and for how long. Also only being able to travel certain roads makes the planning more intensive. I've ridden from my house to the Oregon and Idaho borders and even farther if I go south and camped out of it for upto a week at a time. I'm curious if anyone else uses a ohv for their expeditions.
I have several builds in the works and would be willing to share information on anything I can if anyone is interested.

Thanks. The rack I stole off Craigslist for $30. I don't know what brand it is, but it works great. Haha.

I have been searching for bumper options, as well. They are difficult to get and are ridiculously expensive. Metal Pasja (Polish if I remember correctly), WAM, Crawl Offroad, and of course, ARB. There is a way to do a "hidden winch" inside your bumper, and just cut in a fairlead.

Get on jeepforum. Insane amounts of knowledge there. Get a tune for your CRD, expensive but worth it. Orange gaskets on these are BAD.

Badger, what mods on your CRD?
I am totally taking notes and the Pasja gear is so mean.

1) Picture! IMG_3281.JPG
2) Location:- Narangba Queensland Australia
3) Rig:- 2016 Isuzu MU-X LS-T, 4x4, 3.0 turbo diesel, automatic. We have an Xrox bull bar and a phillips light bar fitted so far plus a 2" Old Man Emu suspension lift and Bridgestone 697 All Terrain Tyres. Many plans for the future but that all comes down to earning more money to feed the habit!
4) Overlanding Experience Background:- Pretty novice. plenty of friends to adventure with! The hardest part is finding the time!
5) Future mods:- Rock sliders(already bent the alloy side steps), roof platform/rack, snorkel, bigger tyres with matching wheels, fridge, tow bar, dual battery setup and a flash tune to improve performance as the Isuzu is super under tuned from the factory.

Hey Guys, I'm Mike
Location: Costa Mesa, California
Rig: 2016 4Runner TRD Pro
Experience: Okay on 4 wheels. I've been on motorcycles most of my life and seem to understand two wheels better. I've been around rock crawling and off road racing for a long time as a spectator of my friends and their rigs.
Love the pics Mike! Where were you at?

Sweet setup and those new pics show the details better. And you haven't seen signs of metal fatigue or stress fractures? Do you run fuel 24/7? Thanks again for more pics, I really appreciate it.
No metal fatigue or fracture whatsoever. I only run fuel when we are headed out. Then it goes in the tank. It has had fuel for over a week long trip so the added weight has been tested.
