Advanced Mall-Crawler

Overview

This truck started life as a Texas Border Patrol vehicle. It was setup with a cage in the back and a heavy duty tow package that was well-used. Maybe towing a horse trailer.....?While it was very plain on the inside - baby shit brown interior, rubber flooring, no side panels - it came with all the good mechanical stuff - AC, oil cooler, etc.... I purchased it in 93. The first upgrade was to remove the pinner 29s, and it has been open-wallet since then :pimp:



Here is the list:
6" lift - ORD shackle flip in the rear, ORD HD shackles in the front, zero rates, 1" body lift
37" Nitto Trail Grappler - balance well seem to do ok on and off road.
17" Trail Gear beadlocks - these wheels are one of my favorite components, super heavy duty, no leaks, and look great!

We have outgrown the first trailer (not enough room for 2 adults, 2 kids, and dog, even for short trips) so a new build is in the works! Everything worked well on the first trailer with the exception of the heavy 4 person tent on the narrow track trailer – too tippy! New build (IBv2): M101A3 (I need to record the date, forgot it). Very clean and included stakes, sides, and cover (I will be selling that stuff and the HMMWV tires/wheels to help fund the build). Goals : New tongue / receiver...
