Critical dimensions for your bed platform:

Width (at narrowest point): 33"

Height: 10"

Is this your daily driver or getaway car? 


What do you like most about your rig? 
Its size and capability. 


On your average weekend adventure, what is the gear set up you bring with you? How did you navigate gear storage needs into your rig set up?
I always have a Sleep System and Pillowin the truck, my Blackfire power bank, head lamp, and something to make fire and water.

Any cool custom details you’re proud of?
The lighting, I've still got a bit to add but I love that my truck looks like a UFO rolling down the road LOL.

Coolest place you’ve taken your rig to? 
So far, southeastern Oklahoma for a 4 day fly fishing trip

Any projects in the pipeline to get the cruiser even more adventure ready? 

Considering adding a little more lift and going up another tire size, onboard air, an additional roof rack over the cab, and some much needed storage!

Biggest challenge in your build out? 

My vehicle's size is a major limitation. It seems the outdoor/overlanding space is built around the Toyota platform so finding parts to make tasteful mods to my Mega Cab can be a challenge.

Tips for others looking to do the same to their vehicle? 
Just do it! You know you want to LOL. In all seriousness, just take the time to really think about and plan your build. You will see a million and one things on the next person's truck and think you need all of that when you really don't. Find what fits your adventure style and go from there one step at a time. Unless you're just balling like that . If that's the case, Lemme hold a dollar :)
