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… 🤔ColeBParticipantMay 7, 2019 at 11:42 amPost count: 1179
That’s what I was thinking… we need to pre run this summer.
Good thing you didn’t crash it. Crashin Will doesn’t sound as cool as crashin ColeWillyModeratorAugust 13, 2019 at 1:11 pmPost count: 766
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:
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…Pat KKeymasterAugust 14, 2019 at 6:18 amPost count: 968
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.John JonesKeymasterAugust 14, 2019 at 7:53 amPost count: 5134
I think Pat hit it on the head… 😎 more accessories!!!WillyModeratorAugust 20, 2019 at 11:54 pmPost count: 766
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.GlennmossParticipantAugust 21, 2019 at 7:06 pmPost count: 137Pat KKeymasterAugust 22, 2019 at 6:33 amPost count: 968
