So many posts here to like! Hey, just a heads up >> Next May https://powerwagonsinmoab.com/ - Hopefully we can meet up then.I am a new member, and a new PW owner!!! Looking forward to setting up the rig!
Thanks I love it! Seeing other PWs and their setups would be awesome!
I really like your list, a lot of that looks like my future plans as well. I will be really curious to see what you think of your Baroud. I have looked at them but that's not in my budget yet. Too many other things first and will most likely end up with a soft sided RTT for the time being. Near future plans include finishing out the suspension for a bit more travel and articulation and Kings of course. Hoping to start on a custom bed rack on my next trip home. I want something that can still leave me full access to the bed and allow me to keep the tonneau cover in place. Also planning an over the cab roof rack for the RTT. I found some really cool water storage options on Front Runner Outfitters if your interested. They have a tank that utilizes the footwells of the back seat that I like along with a few others. A rear under bed winch is in the plans along with a slide storage system for the bed to house gear and equipment. (stove, fridge, gear boxes, tools, etc.) I am also planning to add a second compressor and another 5 gal. of air storage to my existing OBA in essence doubling what I have now. We were able to run air tools in short bursts recently doing a trailside repair/recovery. It worked great but would have been nice to have more air on demand and a shorter recovery time. Of course camp and area lighting and awnings as well as a solar or truck heated camp shower. Like I said your list looks alot like mine. I have a bunch more all laid out on my white board at home. I will keep you posted and keep my build post up to date as the mods go on.Hey Chris! I'm on here too, from time to time anyway. Ran into some OB guys in Death Valley last year and they convinced me to join.
You mentioned taking your rig in a new direction, got any plans you wanna share!?

he has a Magiolina and an awning mounted on it. They were a simple install and as I said, it is a rock solid platform.I used to think the front runner prices were insane, but now I'm trying to mount a RTT and awning to the Yakima system and it's costing a fortune... now I can see the value in a real rack.
