    This is basically what it looks like when I drive the Doka around. Same driving style too, just more dodging of priuses 😜

    That Tatra is Badass!!!!!!  You do make all the dieseldudes out there jelly when you roll coal in the Dok.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Haha I’m not ready to sell this thing! The split won’t make a good commuter for me, but then again neither does this… Oh well!

    I’m getting some major rack-envy from this one… May have to try and replicate it someday.

    My thoughts too! 🙂

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Just filling the home page with late model junk 😎

    P.S. tried using this as a commuter for a week, its okay. Not ideal. Brainstorming solutions.

    Had a super fun weekend out in Anza Borrego with the doka this weekend, its California biggest state park and is still in San Diego county, less than 100 miles from my driveway but feels like you’re waaayyy out. We barely saw any other people the whole weekend.

    Lots of cool stuff to do too. The world’s largest mud cave system is there and some cool slot canyons and such.

    Saturday night was probably one of the most tense moments I’ve ever had in a car. We were dumb and driving around in the dark following this trail looking for a secret camping spot and came to the top of this thing called “Devils Dropoff” or something like that, drove right past the sign and didn’t think anything of it. We got to the top of this super steep hill got out, I walked down it a bit, noticed it had a few “dips”, came back up and was like “yeah, we got this”. Started down the hill and put the nose into the first dip, which turns out is basically the size of the entire bus.

    We drop way down into the hole, pitch the back tires way up into the air and is wheel standing so high Maddie’s friend Gianni could stand under the tire. In addition to all of this we were on the side of a pretty steep drop off that was all loose sand. 😬 We basically just took it slow, let the weight transfer slowly when it rolled, and had Gianni hang on the bumper to keep it from pitching too far… Only took us a little over an hour and a half to get down the first drop off.

    It was pretty exciting, but I also felt like I was gonna throw up the whole time. Too dark and tense to take pictures, and I didn’t want any photo evidence if I did roll it over…. It looked like this pretty much the whole time… but at night… with no cell service… on a hill…. (dumbass 🙃)

    When we got drove down the trail and came up to the next drop off we just decided to call it a night and find a cool spot to camp around there (At about 10:00pm) 😛Woke up in a pretty cool spot though.

    The lower section turned out to be much less scary than the first, so we were comfortable forgoing the spotter in favor of a photographer

    Some evidence of how far down the nose was in the dirt:

    I think most of the stuff we did would have been accessible by my westy too, just probably not the “short cuts” we took looking for this campsite we didn’t end up finding. Super cool area to check out though and I’d recommend it to anyone coming through this way. Maybe just check the trail map first 😉

    Haha yeah, and nothing impressed them more than making her get out to stack rocks so we didn’t tip it too far over!

    Pretty close to Mexico though, I’d say we were probably like 20 miles from the border at our most souther point. Might be some good prerunning for Baja out there… 🤔

    Good thing you didn’t crash it. Crashin Will doesn’t sound as cool as crashin Cole

    Seeing all these Tacoma’s with the bed racks got the wheels turning in my head about getting the tent out of the back of the truck to be a bit more useful. After a few excursions, I think I want to keep the center of gravity lower and not put the tent into orbit by having it above the roofline on a rack, like this one:

    920174

    I think something that gets the tent just high enough out of the bed to fit a 27.5 bike in the back and some gear would be super helpful and add even more useability to the camping/overland rig status. Drew a little design and then actually found this one on Google, some guys in Utah that I’m sure Cole, you probably know. I’d like to copy it but need to figure out how I’d make it fit with the factory rack thing. 🤔

    I like that it adds some utility to the sides though, and you could still slide gear in and out when you drop the gates. Might just have to cut some holes and clearance it for all the jagd stuff…

    Build it Willy!

    The more accessories on your Vanagon the cooler it is seams to be the theme with these rigs.

    Yup I called it a Vanagon…😘

    We will build it if it comes.

    Agreed! More accessories = more chicks… I think?

    Started a project today that was pretty far down my to-do list but just sorta fell into my lap recently. Was in Oceanside and saw this doka outside of a bike shop and the owner had some door panels he was trying to get rid of that were in a lot better shape than mine.

    I swapped the window switches, power mirror control, and other bits over to the new panels and they look so much better already.I think I’m gonna try to get the drivers side panel a bit wet and then squish it a bit more flat then make some caps or something to cover the window crank holes and call it good! No more duct-taped door panels!

    Decided to order some Retrosound 4″ speakers while I’m in there too because mine were tired and blown.

    This thing is doing great. No real news or anything to report with it, other than it being driven. Corporate took it the other day to help Audrey move some stuff and said she got comments at all the stop lights!

     

    Not a Jadg, but thought this Tristar looked pretty cool with a Dove Blue barndoor in tow….

    My noble steed!!

    This thing always comes through for me, it took me safely from GJ up to Steamboat on some slightly treacherous roads. Lots of cars in the ditch and even offered to winch one up that was down stuck in a tree right next to the river.

    Spent the night in Steamboat, hung with friends, then went to Winter Park and now back in Boulder. Comfy and warm the whole way. Love it!

    My first week went really well! It’s a lot of training, and still more to go, but seems like it’s a pretty legit company. Of course, it’s always tough to beat KCW…

     

    Did some exploring with the Doka in the mountains around Boulder yesterday. Came across a cool little town called Gold Hill
