Hello everyone

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

  2. Hi James! Nice to meet you. We have similar setups and it’s great to be self contained and have a roof over your head…. not enjoying the tents so much out here in the NW having to load them up wet then find a place to dry them out. Looking forward to seeing your rig as you build it out. 73 KB7RQQ

  3. Definitely nice to have a roof. Although we don’t get much rain down here in Tucson Az. Tents and hard ground just doesnt cut it anymore.
