What is that and where did you get it?! Just take my money now!

Edit: saw your Reddit post and that you did it yourself. Bravo! I wanted to custom fab one too relying on 80/20 and utilize the cargo bar mounting points. Saw that Weistec makes adapters for a cool $100 each (!!!!!!) and decided the project may have to wait a little longer. Am trying to make it modular like a RSI Smartcap but that may be beyond my skill set.

It's a product that I am developing at my metal fab shop. This is the Alpha version and I've had it on for a couple months now to test and work on options. Should be ready to take orders soon. I do want to build the beta version for someone local'ish to run around with - that or I'll put the beta on mine and repurpose this one. I originally thought @jjswan33 might want to until I saw his "range killing beast" he put on .... :)

Meh, range killing is a bit of an overstatement, about 15% I think so no different than putting on some AT tires.

As far as this thread, what can I say.. Making scrambled eggs, taking a shower, mobile accommodations…. I’m doing quite a lot with my bed

HA, I was just giving you a hard time. Everyone taunts me with that even though there's not much change with the canopy.

So nice not having to load soil and plants in the Miata.

Very nice. Who makes that shell?

Edit: just saw that you had already answered the question. Where can I follow your adventures, as you continue working on this project?

I will be setting up a sponsorship here soon and then I can post a specific thread for them. For now, all I can do is tease :)

Edit- That said, you can always message me and I can keep you in the loop.

Make-shift water truck.

On Tuesday, my neighbor and I had our private road re-done with a new 1-1/4 gravel base and 5/8 minus top. Since the possibilities of rain seemed far off, I ended up using a 25 gallon bin and a 120V/6GPM pump to apply water to help it set up. Took me an hour (a few trips) to do my 1/2. Next time I'm going to try to find a larger water tank and have someone else drive.

My neighboor strung together something like 7 garden hoses to get his half done, but his house is much closer to the road.

Truck stuff. And I started to remove the straps when I decided to take a picture, in case there are questions about my hauling skillz.

Also, these are empty returns, so, no, you can't have any.
