    ARB dual compressor with 4 liter tank (installed driver’s side of drive shaft, vertical compressor and tank).

    Redarc dual battery system with isolator. Batteries are Mopar 730 CCA, 140 RC, and 80Ah.

    White Knuckle rock sliders (got real good use out of them last week at Coyote Flats).

    mall of the following I have purchased and installed myself:

    Expedition One front bumper with full bull bars and mounts for all the stock sensors and lights,

    Nuthouse Industries package of rolling tonneau cover, equipment rack (cab high), spare tire shelf, 2rotopack mounts, Maxtrax mounts, light package that included rack clearance lights, l/r side and rear flood/work lights, and deck light. Also included two steel camping tables with slide in mounting.

    KC G4 amber fog lights in front bumper,

    KC under hood cyclone lights,

    KC 28” chase lights. I rearranged the lights so that red were in the middle for CHMSL use, amber were on the outside for flashing in high dust/low vis situations, and white in between the red and amber for rear backups or work lights as needed,

    SwitchPros 9100 system for accessories switching,

    CB with 102” whip,

    Dometic CFX 95DZW fridge/freezer (I love it). Installed where the passenger side rear seat goes. I removed both rear seats.

    Lost Coast RTT bought used. Had to get an extra mattress pad because it was too hard for my tender self. Installed power strip and led lights in it.

    23Zero Peregrine 270deg awning.

    200W solar charger. It’s Chinese so I don’t expect much from it. Worked pretty good last week.

    Near future stuff:

    6 AEV Ram Katla wheels (on order: 17x8.5, 8x6.5 bolt pattern, +26 offset (I think)),

    Probably 6 37x12.5 Maxxis RAZR M/Ts. Waiting to get the wheels before I order. Driving without a spare now as I blow a sidewall every time I go off-roading with OEM tires,

    LiFePO4 100AH battery for power to significant nighttime loads (primarily fridge).

    VHF/UHF radio and antenna system. Probably one of the Kenwood products. Just got my FCC Tech license.

    That’s it for now. Some pics follow:

    This is a sweet rig. Any interior shots?
    Storage in your bed is great with the ram box. Are they well organized?

    I’ll take some interior shots tomorrow. Just posted some pics that I already had on file. Thanks for the reminder.

    Why VHF/UHF instead of GMRS/FRS?

    Looks cool and well sorted for your activities.

    Question... with all these upgrades, what payload are you left with? I believe the PW had something like 1400# of payload unladen which isn't much.

    I probably will eventually have gmrs HTs (and license) as well. Most of the folks I know overlanding have ham. Plus, in lieu of getting a single purpose emergency notification device, ham can fill that niche and I can actually use it. I’ll even keep the CB as there are still CBers on the trails.
