    Fawk.... Pulled the trigger on some sliders today...Pelfreybilt bolt on with top plates..Will be a bit before those are ready for pick up.

    Bed lights are coming soon along with rock lights. Think I'm going to pick up a few of the Ch4x4 push switches as I have a few empty spots should come out pretty clean.

    I have a pair China dually LED sitting in the cupboard in the garage. Can't make up my mind if I want to put them on for the time being as ditch lights or maybe just keep them for dust and work lights for the rear ?

    Subscribed, just cuz this sounds very similar to how I plan to build mine up. Details on the rim backspacing and junk? I want as big a tire as possible with a low C/O lift for bombing fireroads and light big bear crawling/exploring.

    Where do you live?

    Yep pretty much my game plan. Trying to create the family adventuremobile. Not really looking to get too crazy with it for the time being, as I still have the Single cab to get pitted in. Problem is the single cab ends up looking more like a shelf in the garage than it gets driven.

    I know the feeling, my 88 is usually buried or locked in with crap. Thanks for the info and let me now if you want to hit up Big Bear ever! All my friends are real rock crawlers, so nobody wants to do the easy wheeling stuff haha.

    The 88 is fun, but it's a friggin mission to get it loaded up, tow it out there, etc. Plus everything's easy unless I do the big boy trails. I just wanted something like this I could cruise out and hit dirt roads and trails and have fun doing the little stuff again haha

    Scored some load bars from my buddy at Frontrunner for my RTT...Hoping to get the little man out for his first camping trip next month somewhere up 395... Should be a good time.

    Still need to install my spare under bed
    Do cab mount chop. Tire rub is pretty annoying

    10 ft ladder ? No Problem

    I've gotta say the front runner load bars are pretty sweet. I've had 4 different Thule/yakima bar set up for roof bars. Nothing even comes close to the quality and stoutness of these.

    Another plus is if I want to build a bed rack down the road I can use these parts.

    Is a great year! She's had a rough year between some gnarly hail and a trailer hitch but we're fixing it up bit by bit.

    Yours looks fun as hell haha

    Looking good! I picked up a rear bumper for a steal and now I realize my spare hangs down like 10' below everything. I may make some kind of rack similar to that to attach it too to keep bedspace clear. Maybe adjustable arms...? Installing all my suspension/rims/tires this weekend too! Heading up to Shaver lake area next weekend to camp/light wheel/hopefully not destroy rockers
