    So once you remove the DRW - you are exactly where you would with a factory 3500 SRW truck, payload wise?

    Four Wheel Camper Custom on an old military HMMWV

    You couldn't pay me to use a HMMWV as an expo vehicle. Loud, uncomfortable, and slow.

    My next new build is about to start - V3 Explorer - Feedback from the group needed

    Awesome build! Couple of questions for you: - How has the 3500 been handling with the camper's weight on the highway? Are you happy with the 3500 or did you wish that you went with a 5500 size truck? - Assuming that the truck you started with was not a chassis cab. Were there any challenges...

    Locked and Long Travel Tacoma Build

    The tire gate is built so that the spare can stand up (like it is in the pictures) or the portion that the actual wheel is mounted to, within the tiregate, can rotate and lay flat in the bed of the truck. I do that when I need to haul a sheet of plywood or I want to go fast and lower my center...

    Locked and Long Travel Tacoma Build

    Ball park $10,000-12,000, and that's doing all of the fab work myself. You could easily hit $15,000 to $20,000 if you're paying for install and fabrication. Most of the money was spent on the long travel suspension and ARB lockers. Some pictures from Alaska:

    Tacoma Overland Vehicle Prep Advice

    The primary planning gap that I see right now is that you have no means of self-recovery for the truck. If the truck were to become stuck in a remote area, you'd have to separate and have a bike ride out to get help; which could lead to all sorts of things going wrong. A set of Maxtrax or...

The lower skid is an All Pro IFS skid that I took a plasma cutter to and put in a press brake to make the front angle mate up to the lower tube of my tube bumper. Secures to the frame with the...

    Locked and Long Travel Tacoma Build

    It's been so long since the truck was stock I couldn't tell you; but I will say that I have ample braking power. Having the ability to turn the ABS off when on slick ground is also a huge help in keeping the truck under control, especially on steep descents.
