I figured I'd start a thread to document everything I do to/with this truck, I picked this thing up pretty much as-is on Dec 10th. I needed a trail rig to take the abuse of rock crawling off of the Suburban. I built it to be a camper/overlander, a little more @mosesburb and a little less @kgblazerfive. Every time I wheel the Suburban I push it a little harder after Trail Hero in October I decided it was time for a dedicated wheeler. Something small and light, everything the Suburban isn't. My plan at the moment is to exo cage it, build a harness bar to mount up some seat belts and drive it til the body looks like aluminum foil. I don't have a name for it yet but here it is.

Here's everything I know about it.
