First post. Been lurking a while. SO many great ideas I've gotten from this forum. Thank you all for sharing!

Will be putting together a build thread soon when I can get my pictures organized. Still very much a work in progress. Shooting her smoke gray very shortly. Planning on her being my very mobile retirement "Tiny House" at some point. :)

She is a 1988 Kodiak 70 Series with a turbocharged Caterpillar 3208 diesel, 130,000 original miles. Primitive; no electronics, no DEF. Easy to work on. Lots of life left in her. Maybe Alaska? Then Costa Rica? Who knows?

Very cool

No build thread yet, but I'll put something together when I have some time. Truck has been my "childhood" truck for all intents and purposes. My folks bought it from a family friend in 2003 or so, and it has been been my dad's DD since then. He ended up having to have a surgery in his neck two year ago, and last year decided that it was too much for him to drive around. I had a 2006 lifted E350 at the time, but when there was a possibility that my parents were going to sell the truck, I unloaded the van as fast as I could and bought it from them. It's been a steady go over the last year bringing it back into a tight feeling, comfortable DD/Baja/camping rig. Most of the stuff I have done has been pretty boring, but I'm going to start going into the fun stuff soon. Exhaust, tuner, new turbo wheel, maybe an Atlas spring pack in the rear. And most importantly, a rebuild of the Callen Camper we got in San Bernadino a year and a half ago for a steal. The camper is pretty hammered, but should be a fun build when it's time to do.

All photos are from down in Baja for the 1000 this year.

I've always thought those trailers would make a wicked bed, it'd look awesome with the cab painted to match the trailer/bed, carry the bedliner across that rail- ps, its interesting that you put the trailer on as a bed and made the bed a trailer

Waste not want not lol. That corner lot there belongs to my father in law, who also owns the trailers pictured. So I park all my junk on his corner, and he loses rent because there's no trailer where my C10, 98, and F250 sit all the time. So I thought if I could give him a new junk trailer for hauling materials and stuff, why not? My old bed is smashed, but it's not worthless.

When I warms up a bit ill be painting the bed and stuff, in the meantime I still need my truck, so it'll have to be mismatched for a bit.
