Looking Nice!

Just wondering....why not mount the rtt in the bed?
I only mounted it on the roof because It was a last minute thing. I plan on building a bed rack for it and mounting it there.
It did work pretty good on the roof though..
not a bad option in a pinch.

I recent got hooked up with frontrunner outfitters and worked a deal out to do some product testing with them. I installed a bedrack and featherlight RTT.

Also installed some radflo 2.0s in the rear to help out on those long dirt roads.

And then I came across a set of used Prg upper arms and had to jump on em. I'll probably titan swap after MOAB but until then these are working out great!!

Last but not least I ordered up some factory color matched paint and did up the grill and a couple interior pieces.

Where is the rest of this build? I am trying to track down more photos of your truck. I would love to see how much the factory wheels stick out with the Titan swap I would also love to see how your bed rack is working with that trick table slide.

Ok guys. Since I have been a real chump on update I'll try and catch up.
I think I left off a while back. So here are my newest suspension mods

Titan swap radflo 2.5s
Suspension part Coil spring Shock absorber Auto part Suspension

TC upper arms, m205 Titan diff.

Alcan 4" lift leaf pack from
Tire Automotive tire Auto part Wheel Vehicle

Fully swapped
Suspension part Coil spring Auto part Suspension Tire

Once I got the suspension done I decided to try out a controversial tore size and see if the camel trophy guys were on to something. I went with skinny 255-85-16 BFG KM2s
Another reason I went with them was that wig the the stock wheels and Titan swapped they actually tuck perfectly into stock fenders.

Update #4 [
Full aluminum skid plates from hefty fab. These are amazing slid plates. I installed them and then totally abused them in Moab. They held up really great! Believe me when I say I abused them!!

Thanks man. I have a wrap around hefty rear bumper getting built as well as a couple other little miss coming pretty soon. Been pretty busy with business, racing etc and the build threat kept getting back burnered.

This is basically what I'm looking to do with my truck to build it for overlanding. I have the armor and bumper situation figured out but I'm really lost on the truck bed setup. Do you have any details of what you have for your setup?

Mainly looking for recommendations on bed rack and cargo storage.

Yeah I saw those. I was more curious about storage like a drawer system or something. Mainly interested in trying to see how to keep dry and clean.

Great build.

How do you like your SpiderTrax Hub Centric Wheel Spacers for off roading? I run the same tire size on my stock Pro4x wheels as well. Thanks
