Me and a friend went for a drive to a small town about an hour and a half from us and we found this.
That's awesome! I've always been in love with those cars!
picked up a stock 2019 Titan Pro-4x a little over a year ago now, built it up to this point and have been nothing but happy with this truck. Traveled from NY to CO and back with my family pulling a 16' enclosed toy hauler that we lived out of along the way. vary capable truck for me, work and play gotta do it all.
Not my photo( Identical model Stock photo)
I Have to share that I finally had a vehicle long enough to fully pay it off. So the exact type of truck that below is all mine. I am def going to hang on to this one a LONG time I think.
Lately the Tundras have really been in the back of my mind. I still don't know what my next truck will be, but I'm leaning towards full size and I do love Yotas. Congrats on yours!
Been working on my 2018 Nissan Titan XD. This is quickly becoming my favorite truck ever. Has to be the most underrated truck out there by far. Added all LED lights, 3 inch lift, 35 inch Nitto Ridge Grapplers, Moto Métal Wheels, ARB front air lockers with on board air and a 2 1/2 gallon air tank, Weather Guard Tool Box.......
My mobile ham rig...
2005 Dodge Power Wagon with a Bethany Pickupper camper.
Works great for both winter and summer camping.
I have not done much lately but have some projects in the works......all have an order lead-time of 12-15 weeks I just discovered....
I have been experimenting with storage and such, a bit about I got some MOLLE panels for the back of both front seats, they proved the concept to me but the quality and small bits of the design SUCKED. With some help from "a foreigner" I got some stuff over from the US that is MUCH MUCH better. I have not does the seat backs yet (that is for tomorrow) but I did just go spend five minutes putting in the headrest mounted tear away first aid kit.....
.....I have not moved the gear into it yet but will do so as I do the reast.
Interesting, the maker is in NC and would not ship to Aus because of COVID effecting international post. From what I can see the package shipping from NC to AL took longer to arrive than AL to me here......strange days indeend.
Packing up between falling rain a couple of weeks ago.... first few days away were stinking hot (my legs are still peeling after getting inadvertently burned in the shade) then a cold front and driving ran arrived. If I had another day there I would have needed to light the fire !!!
That's what I thought. They are actually in Bedford, Virginia, pretty close to me. Matt and the folks there are really great.
I've gotten quite a bit of stuff from them, including a medium FAK that fits in the OE FAK spot for my Xterra.
VA/NC/TX/WA.......all right next to each other......
More or less!
Got them fitted but only snapped on pic....
Other side....still need to add a pouch or two but I want to use it a little to see if my layout will work as well in practice as it does my head !!
@Andy the Aussie at @TerryD Matt and the BROG crew are great. I've had their stuff in my truck for several years. I'll snap some photos in a bit.
I finally got my overland rack setup with AA mid height truck rails and a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform. As the designated gear hauler of our group, I cant' wait to have too much crap loaded down on here and get out in the woods. Obviously, there will still be more to come with things mounted direct to the rack like side lights, shovel, etc.
Working on my "modular storage" solutions....
Not sure if you have "milk crates" in the US (of the same type we do here) but they are literally what milk is delivered to shops in. They are strong plastic, last years and are often found on the side of the road (though not legal to possess as technically stolen - fortunately for me you can also but them relatively cheaply https://www.theplasticman.com.au/products/milk-crate-30lt ). I hardly know of a single man who survived their 20s who at some point did not have home furnishing that were constructed from such crates. Being a lattice frame shyte can fall out of them, a company here have made a number of bags and liners to better utilise the crates (that they also sell) as packing for camping/off-roading. Above are two crates in such bags, they fit neatly two deep on my deck. I will run two on each side like this with my fridge between. They are well built enough (I have seen a lounge built from around 30 of them) that you can place a load on top of them as well.
Quick solo overnight. Low was sub 20f. Froze near to death even with the hot tent. Too much ventilation would be my guess, but still was a good time.
