Truck Update 2/4/18

We are really happy that our new habitat box is on its way from Total Composites. We received notification that the shipping process started last week. The box should get here around the end of the month / beginning of next month. Total Composites sent us a picture of our habitat ready to ship!

Now that our old habitat box is removed, it is time to get going on our subframe modifications. Our subframe is in great shape, and we are really happy with its layout. Our plan is to remove some unneeded material, make a new perimeter frame, create a habitat ladder mount, add understorage box and jerry can mounts, and add new fender mounts. Unrelated to the subframe but before our new habitat box goes on, we’d like to remove the old spare tire mount and possibly install a new fuel tank if time and availability permits.

To get our subframe work going, we went by a local steel supplier and picked up 138 pounds of steel for the subframe modifications.
