Hey all! I figured I would start a build thread for a recently started project since I am not active on any other media sites. (Back story) Sold race truck and prerunner when I left Ca. back in 2018 when my family and I moved to Houston, Tx. and then in 2021 I was asked to do a stint in West Texas and decided to jump on it. With that being said, we are closer to a number of areas to offroad/overland. I have been collecting parts since early 21' and recently did a pack trip down in Big Bend National Park and got the itch to jump into my project. Aside from this project, I returned to college a few years back and am finishing up my Electrical Engineering Degree, doing a large house remodel and a husband and dad to three. ;) Build progress will be spotty but looking for a completion mid to late summer of 22'. Below are a few details and to date pictures.
