7. Build lightweight modular bed frame and storage box
8. Replace rear carpet with heavy duty rubber matting
9. Install l-track in place of rear grab handles (full length cargo to behind front cabin) for multiple uses, including attaching a cargo net to the headliner (handy for when sleeping in car amongst other things)

Planned accessory purchases / projects include:

2. Full set of bug screens for windows and sun roof
3. Back up camera
4. Dash camera
5. Replace head unit with Apple play / android auto
6. Front runner footwell water tank

We’re going with Napoleon’s edict that “necessity is the mother of all invention”, meaning that, for now, with trips around Europe, we’re going to be doing a lot of highway driving, and some off roading, but nothing particularly aggressive. Certainly not in the short term. We want to be able to live out of this vehicle for weeks on end, transport ourselves and our two dogs, and also not look out of place in an urban environment. As such we’re keeping this vehicle looking as ordinary as possible so as not to attract attention.

Nice work on the Jerry Can holder!
How did you attach it behind the spear? Dose it "clamp" between the tailgate spare tire mount and the spare? That's how I mount the fuel carrier on my Gen III and its working out well...no issues, and many miles of tracks on it.
Cheers

Thanks! Yeah, it's a V shaped plate with 3 holes that the spare bolts go through. I just got 5x fj cruiser steel wheels, so I will probably end up cutting the tube and adjusting the length to the new spare. Did you make the mount for your gen3? Im curious to see how it's designed.

I fabricated a mount quite a few years back, and it's still working flawlessly. Below is a thread where I posted what I did...post #14 and #31.

That looks really good, I like how you used the space between the wheel spokes for the mounting tabs. I didn't have the clearance for that unfortunately.

Had it since October 2020. Spent a bunch of time in the first couple of months at my friends getting all the maintenance done and then some, then the past 6 weeks or so I finally was able to get around to the exerior. Next interior, level/lift etc. Sold my MiEV the day after I got the Montero. Will go now start doodling another build thread.
