Be sure and check with the wife before UPS arrives or she may not sign for them and it might be a cold winter sleeping in your rig :- ( LOL
LOL Thanks for the reminder. Semi fortunate to be currently single. I can get away with too darn much these days!

Single is great too, so am I. That's why I get to go camping now. Before she died I had to check her into a motel while I was gone. Cant be spending from both ends of the checkbook though ! Happy Trails Partner
Rear bench seat to swap out for the standard jump seats in my '80 BJ42. Next is a roof rack.
That's an absolutely necessity if you don't have a camp trailer (IMHO) ! I just got mine and now I don't have to put all my gear in the rig.

found a Redarc BCDC charger, the 40 Amp one, on sale,.. could not resist. I have a VSR at the moment, works well but I need to add solar for longer stays, so 100W solar panels are next.

Ordered a swing out hitch tire carrier to keep my 35” spare tire. I originally bought a spare tire mount for my Yakima Mega Load Warrior rack but I couldn’t lift the spare tire on to the rack lol.
Do you have any info on the hitch type carrier ?

Oh Wow, I had no idea of the cost. As nice as it is I am sure it is worth it if one "has it" to spend. I'll have to take that one off my wish list of wants and may build my own simple version. Thank you SIr
I agree, if you've got the skills, then it'd be worth while and more cost effective to make your own.

I don't do everything but I like to cut the parts out and tack them together and take them to a professional welder. The fab cost is where all the time is in making things. My eyes aren't what they use to be or I would weld it myself. I'm having to do the same thing with my off road bumpers when I can get back on my feet again. I'm down for the time being and itching to get back to my build.

Good luck and hope you find the time and resources to get'er done.
