^^ lmao


there was 1 just like that on trucks a few years ago.. they welded up some part of the outter front axle and it actually held, shocked the hell out of me! they're definitely a good little tool to have on the trail. i can think of dozens of times it would have come in handy

Sounds like an awesome build. Really looking forward to seeing pictures. Things I would add though;

Dual battery kit.
145amp alternator
As many lights as you can fit on it
Fire extinguishers
Fuel cans
Rope

My 85' had one large 42 gallon fuel tank in the rear. Mounted where the spare tire would be on a pickup.

high lift jack, and wood cribbing for blocking vehicles up..... thats a good idea.... i was planning on a high lift jack....and the cooler is in the center console between the driver/passenger seats... holds 2- 6packs, and chills down to 40 degrees farenhieght...... and beer, itll be at the camper at base camp.... no room for alchohol on the trail....

besides beer needs to be at 34 to 38 degrees for a perfect chilled beer... and that requires the trailer fridge(dont worry about that, 4 24 packs for a 2 day outting)

thats the truth... can you imagine as many lights as i could fit on a suburban???? it'd make daytime look dark anywhere within 20 feet of the thing.... but lots of light is a good thing.... im thinking of building some tripod work lights that are 12volt, so i can light up another vehicle, or under one....
