    I'm finalizing the shipment details this week so hope to have it installed on the truck within the next couple weeks!
    Build looks great. Nicely done.

    Looks awesome. I'll be getting a similar bumper built this summer. Will look for you at the overland rally!

    Thank guys! I can finally tell you the habitat is on the truck and just awaiting being wrapped which I'm hopeful will be next week!

    Here are some initial shots of the habitat installed.

    I'm hoping next weekend... the guys at AT Overland missed sending a key element, the large struts that make it easier to open, hold it open and acts as a main support when sleeping in. LOL

    I am also waiting for the replacement leaf springs to come in which will increase my constant load capacity on the springs to 660lbs. In addition to the re-gear, but neither of these are a deal breaker and stop me from going out.

    Nice, looks good for those longer trips/hard to get into places.

    Definitely one of the key reasons I went this route. I recognize it may not be as capable in terms of ground clearance or departure angles, as my wrangler but it is the sacrifice I'm to make to allow us to have the kids dog and room to sleep on our trips which will still allow us to get to 90% of the places the wrangler can take us.

    Thanks! No major plans yet, but we'll likely start small as my youngest is not even 8 months old. I'm thinking South Chilcotin stuff, between Gold Bridge and Gang Ranch. It's also the place I'm most familiar with. We are going to be at both Overland rallies so that give us a few sleeps "in the city" so to speak to know what gear and arrangements we can make.
