The truck is a 95% go, we did several test runs and got lots of metrics. The suspension and drive systems are dialed in. Still need some skid plates, haven't found what we want. Still need to settle on a sleep system, but sleeping in the bed for sure. The hard boxes, Bike and Kayak mounts work flawlessly up to 85 MPH. The rack also works perfectly off road, so well, we forget its there.

We still have to work on the Mic feedback and noise levels inside the cab. At the moment we found something of a work around, as long as we stay at 60 MPH or below audio looks to be usable. Did some raw testing of the camera hard mounts, see video below. Some modifications will be made to correct for some angles and vibration issues. The Robot cam video system hasn't arrived yet, but drone B roll was added.

Will continue to update as things progress and the ship to Europe date gets closer. Now we need to shift focus to cleaning all the mud and dirt off the vehicle to appease E.U. customs.

Testing continues, currently undertaking a short round trip out West. Utah, Arizona and New Mexico are the destinations, next up are the Appalachians. I really have to figure out how to seal the back, dust got into everything. I'm really loving the Cooper AT3's.
