added some 50" light bars to the Duramax and picked up a canvas wall tent with wood stove.

Hey I'm setting up to camp on my Triumph Tiger, what tent is this and what stove do you use? Thanks!

Needs a lot of work before she's bug out ready, but I just picked up a Midnight Edition 2016 Silverado LT Z71.

Mine needs a lot of work to be ready too, but it's a good start. 2013 Toyota Tacoma Limited. Not the TRD Off-Road like I wanted, but was a great deal. I plan on adding an ARB air locker and compressor to it first. It came on Toyo Open Country AT2's and a Leer cap, so not a bad start.

I could have sworn I posted this but I don't see it.

This is the truck my son and I went in on half a piece for his first vehicle. He's learning to drive in my commuter sedan, but he won't get his license until he can drive the beast. It's 2wd but manual.

2016 Kawasaki Concours 14. Bought it about 8 months back, did a 1000 mile 2 day ride on it last July, it's like riding a comfy leather sofa compared to my last bike (Ninja 650).

Thanks. It definitely lives up to the Jeep joke that Jeep stands for "Just Empty Every Pocket".
Lots more mods to go but I am making progress...

Nothing we've had recently would be much more than a dry-pavement bugout ride, until now...
:clap:
Marketed to my better half as a family-fun-mobile and road trip machine, as well as a way for me to get to work when my arthritis makes it
painful to drive my little HHR, behold!

I'm not planning much in the way of mods at the moment, other than some tires, a couple lights for the grille guard, and perhaps a leveling kit for the front sometime in the future.
Otherwise, this beast is just dandy. Sure has a taste for the firewater, though.

I'd also like to rig up a small-ish camper trailer or a biggish teardrop type camper, again as a "family fun" machine, but with the idea of having a moderately comfortable domicile we can take with us if things got too unfriendly in our immediate area.

It's the L59 flex-fuel 5.3

Not sure what sort of options that allows, other than using slightly cheaper E85 while taking a far bigger mpg hit, but if it allows me to use home distilled
ethanol mixed with pump gas, could be a benefit if gas prices peak again. That's something I'd feel the need to research pretty thoroughly before trying.

That would be a nice option. Good luck.

When it is time take a look at Craigslist for your area. I saw a few teardrops that were homebuilts. I'd avoid the ones built on the cheap Harbor Freight type of platforms

Yeah, the low prices can be tempting, but it'd suck for your home to fly apart on the highway.

One of our Arkansas members posted an interesting build a few years ago. I'll dig around for it, but I'm pretty sure my DW wants a more stand-up configgeration.

Be honest, You have to wear gloves to get in the truck on hot summer days. :shock:



And HEMTTs have really, really crappy rides. Bouncy as heck, especially at anything about 15 mph or so. They're designed for the ability to haul cargo over rough terrain, and sprung accordingly.

Riding in the front seat - and thus in front of the wheels - takes some getting used to.


For me the top speed of just 65 was the worst thing about it.

Anyhow, found some more cool vehicle porn from http://www.jd3.com/
