Expo and Adventure Modding Reference Thread!

OK, barring any SubForum creations and the fact that every few months this topic comes around, I'm creating this thread as a place that I can possibly update with links to other threads on this topic and a place others can chime in and discuss.

Maybe it can someday become a Sticky.

Thanks Already had that one up on the list.

I need to figure out a better way to list the threads in the OP. I also want to give credit where it's due for them.

I'm open to suggestions. I'm hoping this will turn into something like Baba Looey's Sticky in the Noobie section.

Imo, a new post would be better. It will bring more attention to the post.

Well, with this being a sticky we won't have to worry about it getting lost in the shuffle.

I think I will start adding a pic of the Mod to the link so FSB's will get a peek at the mod.

Thats actually a pretty good list. I carry a backup starter and solenoid, alternator, and a third battery as well. Also for spontaneous expeditions I keep a fair amount of food, Dr. Pepper and gatorade onboard and for a while there was an open quart of shine in the camping box (forgot it was there...would have made for a fun traffic search). I also keep my coleman dual burner and some propane along with various and sundry cooking gear (a pot, skillet, utensils, baggies, etc). I wish I had a drive shaft in there, which I might go ahead and add since my other trucks gonna need a longer one anyhow. Along with the usual fluids (motor and gear oil, 50/50 coolant, brake fluid and cleaner, trans) I guess I ought to find a spot for a couple gallons of water besides the small bottles I have.

Oh and also: a universal key(bolt cutters), wheel chocks, a couple first aid kits, a couple rain suits, a couple stocked complete electrical kits, chair, knock off dura logs, sawzall and battery+charger, hand saws, few rolls of shop rags, backup coil and full set of plugs and wires, oil absorbant booms, nitrile gloves, cold weather gear, cheap tent, sleeping bag, tarp, and the most important advil and antacid. Hell probly a bunch more i forgot.







Edit:now looking at the last pic i suppose its time to take down the Ron Paul sign in the window. Sigh.

That reminds me of my cargo area with all those cargo crates.

Made me think that my springs may not be as worn out as I thought!

I always carry my 3 day pack and medical kit behind my front seat as well as a few ammo cans too.

Must have items.

That's a mermite can on the right side that I scored for 20 bucks. That's just what I carry around all the time as it sits in the driveway. If I'm venturing out for a trip there's much more gear with me. My BOB is EDC so it "could" be included in the list but usually its with me either in the BKO or DD. I also don't necessarily want to include whats in it.

REMCO's thread needs to be linked in the OP - his is one of the few trucks that was actually set up for this, and THEN USED FOR IT! I'm still waiting for locations of the pics in that thread...

Also, the threads about slide-in campers would seem appropriate. Adrianspeeder started the most-recent one, I think.

Another term for long-distance long-duration camping is "turtle expedition". (search keyword)

I like the idea of the camper, but like Jase says "then its just parking". I'm just happy that mine's been able to go beyond its original purchase intent which was to handle what the hunting lease has to dish out. Being able to mildly wheel is great, but for me its all about those 20 weekends before, during, and just after whitetail season. Speaking of which turkey season is right around the corner.

I have a hardtop I got for free from Fordguy78 that I was planning to use as a flange for a softtop... but then I was looking at the aluminum studs in a hardware store the other day and now I'm thinking bolt-on pop top.

Iolaus posted up the installation of removable tie downs. Eyes that screw into a threaded sleeve to strap down the gear. The eyes can easily be unscrewed for sleeping.

That would make Jeff the first guy I ever heard of who got UN-screwed and fell asleep

Jeff continues to amaze me!

Done. Thanks for the find. I'll look for some of the others also.
