I love guys who start with a bulletproof base.

thanks billiebob it is a tremendous value to boo!

this is the same reason i keep coming back to the premise that i should not molest this box to try and make it do something it was not designed to do. we will add windows like Mattersnots' unit

we are settling in on a large booth to cut our teeth as most of our travel will be measured by weeks

im the kinda engineer who says 'less is more'

Yup, no issues with tires at all but they don't see a lot of miles. I don't get out nearly as much as I'd like to. I'm hoping this year will be a bit more friendly to long weekends. I've got a few Amazon boxes sitting in the Ambo awaiting my attention but time is in short supply. I've also started yet another project for Overlanding with an M1009. The weather here in AZ should start warming up and I'm going to be pushing for the hills if I can! I've struggled with modifying the box as well. It's all put together pretty well as it is. I'll keep checking in on your progress!

Motorman, could you please post the numbers for your front axle and transfer case on that beauty when you get a chance? I still have 4X4 dreams, nightmare, visions occasionally and I may have to confront them one day!
