Finally back in a truck after having a car for a few years. Just picked up a 2014 Ram 2500 Cummins that I will be building into an overlanding rig!
So far plan is:
Rack
Roof top tent
Bed slideout
Front bumper with 16k winch
Rear bumper
On board air
Solar panels
Auxiliary power system
Batwing awning (not sure brand yet)
Some kind of refrigeration and cooking area (need some ideas)
Light bars
Long term plans (2-3years):
AEV lift and fenders with 40x15.50 tires
Gears and ARB air lockers

Same here. 2018 2500 RAM Cummings. I got the Ram boxes. Bad move on my part. Not too many bed rack are made for that model. Also the marker light over the Cab. Have not found a roof rack that will fit.

This is the only rack I know of for a truck with Ramboxes but the reviews are great!

We are close, Do you do any overlanding when its gets cooler. I generally go to Ocala NF. Looking for free camp sites
I was at ONF I couple weeks ago. It was a little hot during the day. If you just run trails during the day, you can stay in AC and the set up camp at dusk when it’s cooler.
