From a Navigation (and comms) perspective, I really like my Garmin Rino T650.

From a communications perspective getting your HAM license is always a good idea. GMRS is a good system, being able to go up to 5w, and one license is good for everyone in the group, unlike HAM.

Looking forward to seeing the project take shape.

@Josh funny you mentioned that Rino. My brother has a two year old he doesn't need anymore and he volunteered that today. Coupled with Gaia, I should be good on nav. Can't wait to play with it and see.

@michael thanks! It's going to to be a great base and start for me. Picked up a compressor too. I'm hoping it can all come together for Sept! Thank you once again for the stoke.

Back from the body work and good to go...kinda. A fender flare was the wrong part but "close enough" to not be noticed until the job was done. Not too happy, but it's better than a multiple panel dent!

The paint match is pretty close, considering its 15 years old.

Actually, it's far better. not stiff at all, but I do have about 150-200 in the back. Cornering feels much better. Not surprising because the coils had 164k on them. It's intentionally a little softer, with Rancho5000 shocks, because it is still my daily. Dying to get it off pavement!
-I've never driven without sway bars and I'm curious to see. I've heard people swear by it and some notsomuch....

My sway bars came off, early. Not much change in on road manners but I know better than to drive it like a car. Articulation increased significantly.
