Perhaps with the Spring-over mod and fully loaded with gear, your net ride height may not be much increased, you may Still get the tire/fender look when weighted down.
Water @ 1kg/L (est 20-40kg)
Propane @ 10 kg
Deep cell @ 20kg
Tongue box and tools…June 13, 2020 at 9:55 pm #209688
That’s actually a good point, you’re smarter then you look. I didn’t think about the loaded weight. Mind you the leaf springs on it are thick and lots of leafs so I feel as though they barely move at all even under load. Progress pics….
The bumper is what I’m hoping to build/maybe buy.

That’s not the first time I’ve been complimented in that manner. Better than lookin’ smart till I open my mouth (or type something).
That BBQ stand on the side is my fav part so far. 1 concern, smoke/steam/splatters will be right under your tent. Good in the morning if you or wifey Q up some bacon & eggs!!June 14, 2020 at 10:55 pm #209708
The tents gonna open up on the opposite side so hopefully too much doesn’t go up there but it’s true, it all bolts on so if it doesn’t work I’ll just change it up.

Looking good!June 17, 2020 at 9:13 am #209725
Second that!June 18, 2020 at 6:00 am #209747
So I made that light bar pivot 180 degrees on a rubber bushing so hopefully it can take some abuse, which will be nice. Deep cycle is in and my switch panel all works as it should. The tent comes in today, and once it’s installed I’ll wire up my LED strip lights under the tent. Made a mount the other day and Mounted my water can. Ordered a 10w solar panel and charge controller and put that on, it’ll just maintain the deep cycle I’m hoping, not expecting much from it to be honest. Where we camp is generally shaded anyway.
Headed up toward Bancroft Friday if all goes to plan.
I mounted my old 4wd shifter knob from my first gen On it too just for old times sake, and saw this beauty 80 at 4wp.

4wp came through with my tent. One set of post holes tomorrow morning and then we’re off!
