    The day I brought her home!

    [​IMG]

    On the way home from the lot, I stopped by my local tire shop and got new tires and some loaner rims while the blasted and powder coated mine!

    A blank canvas...

    [​IMG]

    Here she is with the powder coated factory rims and an AVID OFF ROAD light bar. I did a ton of research and found that AVID could and would build anything my heart desired. Brandon at Avid is the best. Cannot say enough good things about those guys!

    [​IMG]

    Changed out the factory grille for that "murdered out" look. Picked up some sliders/step bars from AVID OFF ROAD and added a tool box.

    [​IMG]

    Now for the GOOD stuff. Here she is with a toytec 3inch ultimate lift kit installed by the guys at High Country 4X4 in Englewood, CO. I highly recommend those guys if you're in the Denver area. New grille with "old school" FJ emblem, PIAA 520's, and some high speed low drag Bosch windshield wipers. I almost forgot the blacked out headlight mod. To be honest these are aftermarket. Could'nt bring myself to throw the headlights in the oven and give the DIY mod a try.

    Failed to mention the step up in tire size after the lift. Went to Nitto Trail Grappler's 285/70/R-16. Great tire and hardly and sound at high speeds. Almost like factory again.

    So remember when I said AVID OFF ROAD would build anything custom? Well here is the proof. I emailed Brandon and sent him a pic of what I was looking for. He just happened to have an 07' DCSB down in AZ he could use to mock up. He took the pic and ran with it and this my friends is what he came up with...

    You can see where were going with this right? Living in Colorado is amazing, throw in a young son, camping, off roading, and you've got a recipe for fun. I wanted to be able to just throw up a camp site anywhere and with Brandon's vision and absolute spot on design, I was able to do just that!

    Came out pretty sweet. The Roof Top Tent is from EEZI AWN. It's the 1600 and sleeps up to 3 adults and 1 child comfortably. Rotopax 4 gallon gas can. RotoPax Dry Storage Unit/RotoPax first Aid Kit and mounts ALL supplied by Sierra Expeditions in Tempe, AZ. Brandon used Quick Fists to mount an axe and shovel under the platform of the tent. He also designed a removable "storage/tool" box in the front of the bed that houses the mount for the HiLift. There really isn't anything he didn't think of.

    After getting her from AZ...

    As she sits right now without the tent...

    That is SICK. I love that setup you had Brandon setup. Mind if I ask how much it ran you?

    Thanks man. Brandon and the guys at AVID Off-Road are awesome. The rack that he built and had powder coated ended up costing me right around $1000.00. This is including gas down to AZ from CO. You'd have to get a custom quote from Brandon but I bet you're looking right around $750 out the door. The rack is SOLID and bullet proof. Brandon is the MAN!

    Nice bed-rack, looking to get something similar built myself!

    Any photos of the hi-lift mounts and such?

    Thanks man. Sorry for the delayed response, been crazy busy. Thanks for the heads up about Moab. Looks like a great time and if I can get off work (travel for business) I am down. In fact I'll try and get back with you and see when you guys are leaving! Take care. David

    Thanks! Brandon at AVID OFF ROAD is amazing. Total one off custom piece! I'll take some pics of the hi lift mounts and the axe and shovel mounts he "threw in". I could not have asked for anything better, both FORM and FUNCTION!

    New here, but awesome setup. Have you had a chance to setup the tent and everything in the snow or cold weather since you've had it? How does it hold up in the snow?

    I have not tried it yet. It's currently hugging the ceiling of my garage. I plan on taking it to a local CO state park here in a few weeks and I'll let you know how it goes. The Eezi Awn got the best reviews hands down and for the money I paid I'm hoping they're right. Stay Tuned!

    Thanks brother! The rack is made out of the same light weight materials my sliders and light bar are made of. ALL of which were made by AVID Off Road. If you get a chance check their stuff out, Brandon is the MAN! The rack weighs in right about 150lbs I believe dry. Add the RotoPax cans and gas and it quickly climbs to over 200lbs. I've noticed a little difference in how it handles in the snow. It's actually better with the added weight. Gas mileage has stayed around the same and with the tent on there performance isn't affected all that much. Brandon built it so that the tent doesn't stick up too far and create drag therefore affecting performance and gas mileage. I could not be any happier with the set up! It's one of a kind for NOW...

    That rack is awesome!!! I spoke to Brandon about a year ago about building me a rack like that but I failed to come up with the money and put the project on the back-burner.
