Thats definitely not a bad idea, i checked out a couple links in your thread people had posted about bed platforms a while back.

I'll have to try it out a couple times and get a feel for it cause when i climbed in there a couple times to adjust things i noticed the headroom is alot less than i thought it'd be. Maybe if i could build one low enough for some storage underneath and still have enough room overhead it'd be totally doable.

Yeah, one thing I learned when I had the canvas top on is that I won't be sitting up. I was pretty happy just chillin during the day and only crawling in for a nap though.

Yeah thats where the RTT would be nice, having a little more room for activities. I'm anxious to get her out and give it a go. The mountain should be opening up any day now. Just drove up to Red Grade and the sign says open to wheeled vehicles April 1st. Kind of doubt it considering all the snow we just got...but camping season is getting closer!

Btw how do you like your big ass sleeping bag? I'm needing a new one and I was thinking it could double as a pad and just use my old one on the warmer nights.

The bag is awesome...below 30 haha. I burn up in it unless its pretty cold. It would make a pretty good cushion though. If you get cold easily you would probably like it a lot. I personally like the cooler temps so I already packed it up until next winter.

Right on i'll have to look into it. -30 would be more than adequate for me haha wouldn't hurt to have it just in case though.

Just a little hump-day morning update bump.

Picture from the other day after Softopper install. Loving it already.


Cleaned up some loose wires i had dangling around.



Also contacted Scotty at Addicted Off-Road and had him give me a price on sliders and install. Looks like i'll be making a trip down to Colorado in the near future

BTF has one that you weld on the rear.

BAMF is bolt on and is 1/4''. So you loose about 3/8s-1/2'' clearance..but you can split rocks with it.

what i have and Marc has one. I literally don't have to worry about the rear diff anymore haha
The BAMF skid looks beefy as hell. If i can avoid buying more AP stuff than i have to i will lol. Gotta show some love to the other companies too.

lol Gage chimes in at the perfect time.

I do like the bolt on factor as well. If i was proficient with a welder i wouldn't care.

Speaking of which i haven't even so much as turned on that welder i got for free a while back lol i should get on that sometime.

Haha ya as long as I have my phone I just peak in periodically. Ive been on TW a lot more recently just researching though .

The skid does awesome though. I want one eventually but I won't be as reckless as Monte with it haha. It would feel 20x better hearing a thump with it on that's for sure.

I think rape would better describe Monte's mentality on the trail.
