    Just for a point of reference, when we were there last October, we saw 15-20 at night a couple of times, and while sleeping with some nice down bags was warm enough, it absolutely sucked being outside in the early am or after the sun went down.

    Hahaha, ship it! Thank you. I used Color coat and I'm happy with the result. The key is to properly prepare the plastic to take the dye. All interior plastics have some mold release on the from the factory and it needs to be removed, to do so...

    Understood, I was in Tetons and Yellowstone early/mid Oct last year. Crowds were nearly gone, but one or two visitor centers and things were open. Well worth waiting a little later in the season.

    Undetermined right now, but I may be looking for another CO rig to do my third and final build before offering a kit, and that is a big MAYBE:eek:.

    I did that trip last year, same time of year....It's simply awesome, but I would plan running a wire from the truck to the trailer to charge. We ran into some really cold weather and that taxes batteries also. My truck charges the second...

    Have seen his thread, every time its bumped I will admit I do feel a little uneasy haha. That said, the overwhelming majority of parts are still available from @beno himself as well as many other reputable sources. We may have different thought...

  15. LC4LIFE liked Heckraiser's post in the thread Family Camping Set-up.

    My vote for a family would definitely be a camping trailer of some sort. Either the off-road trailer with a RTT (like @dogfishlake pictured), a pop-up trailer, a canned ham trailer or a small teardrop style. There simply is not enough room for...

    Not really the weekend, but started helping a local Cruiserhead get the second build on my high and tight custom bumper design. Much easier and quicker when all the parts are pre-cut.[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]

    I love my teardrop. I can pull it just about anywhere we want to go and its easy enough to add a tent depending on how many of us are going. When my kids were younger, it was a sprung over tent trailer and now the teardrop as they get older....

    Just making the back of my truck look dope....duh :cautious: A few of you were the ones that said chopping my quarter panels was pointless without dealing with frame rails. So frame rails delt with and now it’ll look dope....as stated above

    Loving it! My truck is rusty, so seeing people hack up their trucks in places I have rust makes me sleep better at night. If it rusts too bad, I'll just cut it out!
