Hi, found this site looking for talk groups on Brandmeister.
99 1500 4×4 sport. This was my fishing/camping truck. But a car accident totaled my Altima. Now its my daily. Going to start redoing almost everything. Removed the factory fiberglass toneau, and went with a snugtop camper shell
So far, limo tinted camper shell for privacy under the camper shell, the bed has been insulated, carpeted and wired with led lights and fan ran off a deep cell battery. 30″ cot and 6″ memory foam mattress. Shell has a waterproof plug for shore power if needed. Mostly done in the bed. LED pods in the grille and in the rear bumper. Flowmaster exhuast. Pulled the ham equipment out of my Altima, TYT9800 quadband mobile w/ remote head unit on a diamond CR8900A antenna. If I’m planning on being away from the truck I carry an Anytone AT-D878UVII Plus.
As of today, upgraded to Toyo RT 33s
Plans for the upcoming year will be a gen 4 bumper, viper alarm upgrade, dual battery in the engine compartment, all led lighting, headlight swap, all new steering components, soundproofing the entire cab, double din stereo, ham radio, possibly a seat swap and definitely paint. Hopefully someday we will be able to get either a mission overland trailer or build something similar
Having a great weekend in La Pine, Oregon trout fishing. Weather breezy and cool with occasional rain but fishing and camping are always good. Played a bit of radio too.
Greetings everyone, I’m Dave from NE Florida. Been an overland venture guy since before I knew there was a real term for packing a few days of stuff in the truck and heading out to get away from people for a bit.
Now days, it’s a 2-door Jeep or my ’18 BMW GSA, depending on my mood and the price of gas. I usually have my Yaesu FT-8900, FT-991A, CS580 and a hotspot, or an E.F. Johnson 51SL ES that is a combined Ham and GMRS UHF radio.
Got to take the first post Wuhan Flu long ride on my ’18 BMW GSA in mid-March ’21. NE Florida to Oklahoma City, OK and back in 6 days. Four travel days at 600 miles per and a couple days in OKC during the typical Mid-West Spring weather. Nothing like riding against a 30 knot crosswind, with gusts that had me leaning 45 in to them at times. At least I missed the snow and twisters that storm system dropped in it path.
Got to meet some great people and surprise the heck out of a co-worker who thought I was flying in. The look on his face when I rolled up on the GSA was priceless. His first comment was “How did you manage to rent THAT?”
My response was simple, “What do you mean rent, this is mine. I rode 1200 miles to be at this party.”
In case you don’t know, the big aircraft in the picture is the FIRST Air Force One
