Well, Lots of things happening to the Big Daft Orange truck.

New Cooper ST Maxx 295-70-R18 tires.
Coachbuilder Shackle and Shim kit to give me just a wee bit more height.
Custom back Rack with Room for Gas Cans, ARB Awning and room, Solar Shower, Hi Lift Jack and a set of Treads.
Bora 1.25" Spacers
Demello Sliders, welded and bolted on.
Dog Seat cover in back seats.
Racing Fire Extinguisher.

Coming soon. Coachbuilder Roof Rack and dual 50" Lightbar locations.
1 MDM 50" light bar
1 Tomar Light bar
If Demello ever makes a bumper for the 2014+ trucks, I will be replacing the bumper.

Sitting in front of our Favorite Sushi place...



Ready for the Baja Trip in Nov.

This was the truck after I finished the back rack, but before powdercoating. This was at Rainbow Terrace in Moab.

It was before the sliders, lift and tires.

just to be fair, I'm not a HUGE fan of Sushi. Patti, on the other hand is part seal. It isn't so much the tossing down raw fish, it is the clapping and going ARF AR AR ARF.

SHE says this is some of the best Sushi she has ever had and she is from Vancouver Canada and apparently they do Sushi well there.

It is a custom built rack. A friend of mine and I did it. Here is a better shot. I also have a mount for a shower and my escapers but they arent on in the photo. The mount for the Awning can come off as well.

Is that an ARB 2500?
And a Tent room for it?

My ARB2500 arrives today. I'm thinking about the tent room too.

yes it is. The tent room is in that green bag on the tail gate. I didnt set it up, just slept under the awning. The weather was perfect, except for a bit of wind. The awning was great! It withstood some pretty high winds, it is pretty well braced as long as you use the guy wires.

So, lets go camping! Ill bring the Wombat Chili

Big Daft Orange Truck en Mexico! We all stopped here for an authentic Mexican breakfast in Puerta Penasco.

And no... no one stole my antenna. It has been gone for a while.
