I've been a member on this site for a while now, and I finally have the beginnings of an expo-worthy vehicle. When I lived in WA I got a taste of all the national forest and wilderness we had available to us. I have a build thread over on cherokeeforum but this thread will be more about the camping side of the rig. Here she is.
Bedlined for protection and to cover up the cut and fold fenders and rear quarters.
Built a swing out spare tire carrier and to get my spare off the roof. Also have plans to build a box for my stove and kitchenware on the other side to keep the rattling and setup to a minimum.
I've always hated dealing with wet tents and sleeping bags so I'm building this up so I can easily sleep inside. I did a storage/sleep platform on my last SUV and hated the reduced headroom so I just went with a simple extension.
Got the foam from overstock.com. It's 4" thick and 73" long. Perfect for my wife and I.
Hopefully now I can get out and use it!
