That was with all my gear- which isn’t much. Sleeping bag, food, some tools, clothes, cooking stuff. At this point I don’t plan too do much more. I’ll consider bumpers, but only if I need them. They will put me over GVW. Minor adjustments will be ongoing.Great looking build. I like what you are doing with the rig. I also like that platform system. Very nice.
Quick question - when you had your rig weighed, did that have all of your trail gear and stuff in it as well? I ask because I am really considering getting an 80 series to turn into a camping/exploring/wheeling rig. I have thought about a lot of different platforms, but the 80 looks pretty attractive for several reasons - one of which is that it has a decent amount of payload (~1700 lbs, if google is correct). I have seen too many overland builds on 1/2 ton trucks that just go way overboard on weight and end up being far north of the GVWR.
