    I love this build. You work is very good and the jon boat on top. Well, that just tops it off...
    I wish I could build something like that.

    I still love this build. Have you weighed it yet? More of my own curiousity. Guess it can't be too heavy if the Toyota can haul it!!!

Zjrog I am runin 5.29 on 35in rubber with the 4sp not the 5 it came with. 65 down the road!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok I have some pictures to upload but have forgotten how too . so for now I will just fill you in on the new plan 1 1/2 tube will be bent for rock sliders with the roof rack / top rail to protect the camper and hold a kayak or two . Some angle will be used to make the fenders ... Finished the side LED marker lights yesterday and started the wiring to the 7 prong plug . Also worked on the design on the tire rack / steps off the back ... lots more to come
