Seems to be so far! Got a bed rack being built up, gonna be swinging by SDHQ soon for some tc bed stiffeners. And going to try walking out with only that. Try.
ha ha, um, good luck!! But wait, didn't you already buy suspension and a few other things? Who's making your bed rack? I really want to get the CBI adventure rack sooner rather than later

Haven't bought anything yet. Ordered the rack from RCI. Wanted the CBI overland bed rack, but would have to modify the cover WAY too much to get it to work. Not to mention the RCI pc'd and shipped was $500 cheaper...

Doing my research on suspension, but figured I'd get the rack and tent first and just get out there and see what we need.

Smart. Do your research and buy what is going to work for your use case. Unless you just wanna set your wallet on fire and go full retard. But who would wanna do that???:censored:

Lol yeah, the threads I followed there:
Outkast
JTS2016
JerryTaco
Mmoreno
And yours...

Y'all just went dark until I saw Outkast last night!
Lol, yeah 0uTkAsT's ban ended yesterday but I think he just needed to get some PM's from his account and spread the word about this place. Mine and Jerry's bans are indefinite, but we're not going back anyhow.

Haha yeah I snagged my deals that I was working on with a couple of vendors over there and I'm gone. I will only be on TW to cross-post our meets and happy hours for the foreseeable future until those threads gain more traction on this site.

Not to be all creeper like, but I swear I saw your truck at San Tan Village on Saturday. Not a lot of cements around!

That's entirely possible since I live near San Tan Village and my daughter's preschool is literally right behind it, but my truck is silver, not cement.

Might've been wrong on color. I make it a habit of looking for modified tacos in parking lots so I can show my wife all the stuff we should buy. We were sitting in Grimaldi's and a lifeted quicksand rolls by w/a rack and tepui mounted and she got more excited than I did. Prolly going 23zero Litchfield though, unless I can find more info on these Overland Pros tents. The price is better on em, but gotta do my homework a bit before I commit to one...

I would go with the 23Zero personally. You can buy them locally and the Overland Pros look pretty crappy on paper. I hadn't heard of them until now but the specs and descriptions are not very impressive to me.

We're currently torn between a 23Zero Bondi or holding out for FSR to release their 62" High Country series tent.

I like the FSR adventure series, those quarter dome looking ones. If I still had the T4R, I would totally go with one of those instead. Full foldouts still give more space for the truck bed, it seems...

His was the first thread I found on that other place when I started looking at 6MT stuff,trying to decide if a manual was what I really wanted. Then the rabbit hole opened...
