    Here is my 2012 DCSB Build. I built it for offroad, on road, camping, and as a daily driver. There are SEVERAL things that Ill miss in this build page, but if you have any questions feel free to ask. Ive done all the work myself, (plus help from friends), and I loved every minute....well almost every minute. Lots of pics

    Thanks man, it was a relatively quick build, but it helped a ton $$$ wise to fab my own stuff. Now that i dont work in a shop anymore, makes it a bit tougher lol

    Nice build especially since you built alot of it yourself.


    If this is one of the backcountry campsites, which one?
    Thinking of heading down there in February.

    Found your taco on Instagram first, and then got to your link here! Very awesome man! I'm loving the light in the tent - I'd love more details on how you got it to work!

    Haha thanks man, really i have a fuse block in the rear storage, hooked a $16 2 channel remote solenoid off of Amazon up. Ran the lines into the tent and walah, remote control. And honestly the remote shocks me how far it will function. I jus like being able to light the ladder up from the outside. The led strips are like $18 for 25', and cuttable to length. (Cuttable is not a word, but u get it lol)
