Ray do you want a headliner ?
454, your offer is much appreciated! Call me cheap, but $1500 is a bit more than I can spend on a rack. Heck, I bought my current SD rack for $1500, but it came with a whole truck underneath! Maybe if my upcoming album goes platinum, I'll have a bit more cash to play with, so I'll definitely keep a trip to Utah in mind, and let you know.ExtraDuty, I'll be in Utah a year from now with my D1 and my clean low SD rack. Meet me in Boulder Town with $1500 and it's yours.
I too got an SD rack, a low one in fact, with a whole yellow rust bucket underneath it for $1k-that was a lucky stroke to say the least though.Ray, thank you for not placing your hi-lift on the outside of your truck! I don't know what it is about them, but every time I see them on the front bumper, hood, or roof, I can't help but think it looks weird (maybe it's the abundance of poser Jeeps in my work parking lot...) and I love the practicality of your setup. Granted, there aren't many spots to mount them, so they've got to go somewhere...
Nothing wrong with that, I typically keep a go bag too, which (depending on which one) has many of the same elements in it for basic first aid along with the other stuff you'd want if you had to hike out of somewhere (water, some food, raincoat, etc). Of course since most of the time she's in VA/WV the truth is I'm only about a hard couple hours from a Walmart much of the time it seems! If I was out your way playing it would be a much more serious proposition.Thanks for sharing that Ray! I have just one kit with most of the same however keep a smaller kit in my hike out back pack which is where I keep small nalgene pill bottles for meds and basic first aid. As I started setting up my D1 for more long distance off-road travel I felt it wise to have a backpack setup in the event I have to hoof it out for help or safety. I found no matter how much work I did to my D1's I still saw failure potential as with any rig when you travel off-road.
After a couple of years it was rather therapeutic to go through it all.Nice job!
Thanks for all of the breakdowns on gear.
Makes me want to tear into my stuff this weekend.
Its worth it just for the look on people's faces when they are like 'no way that little box is going to start this thing'Even though I have a dual battery I'm still planning on getting a micro. Just good insurance and easy to help jump someone else. Love your seat covers!
