Light Expedition Rig
So this is my first build post here so don't shoot me.
Honestly I have no idea how you guys post pics the way you do. I just build and go.
I finished 90% of this this weekend after working on it the last few weeks.
Today was the first break in the weather I could take some pics. I will post some better ones tomorrow.
So why did I build this? Well for light Expedition (weekends up to 1-2 weeks) trips (first one to Main destinations; Colorado, Utah, Secondary; Arizona and New Mexico in a few weeks or so). As well as trips with my two boys (they are in the pic)
I will add more to this as I finish up the electrical. as well I will throw in the buildup of my M416 that will be over the next few months.
Bringing the Autohome RTT Adventure Large home on the stock rack (talk about a crazy drive)
Popped it up in my Garage and cleaned out all of the crap, threw out the old mattress and started the light repairs it needed.
So when I got it, I found it was leaking water and the top rail was full.
here was the problem.
That was a 3-4" gash in the fiberglass.
Sorry I did not get a shot of the repair, but i am real good a body work and you would never know it was there.
Also fixed a few spider cracks and gave it a mediocre paint job (better one this winter)
So now i mounted this on the FJ and what a PITA with the Baja rack and this beast.
