What RTT is that? How many does it sleep? What is it mounted to? Great pics!
The RTT was from a company out of Denver Colorado called, Adventure Tenting. I think they are out of business. It is almost identical to a tepui tent. Sleep 2 comfortable, I am 6'5" and I fit in it! It is mounted on these Yakima bars that I know are not made for it.. but it is all I have for now. Going to build a stealth roof rack soon. :hillbilly:

My brother thinks this is going to be his first car when he is old enough to drive. I told him I would think about it if he helped me wash it.

Still can't but help think that I should daily something else to save miles on the 60.. my uncle dropped by with this.. had me thinking of a new way to save miles on the 60...:)

But I love driving the 60 every day. It never gets old to me. I am impressed by it daily... Sometimes when I get on the pavement, I can pass a westy and maybe a semi. :flipoff2:

Just found your thread. Any updates to your rig? You have an awesome truck and I'm jealous you get to live in Durango. We've visited there 4 or 5 times and got married there last summer.

I really need to update this. It is VERY out of date... I will try to get back on it, been very busy with starting a new business. Durango is a beautiful place, excellent place to get married, Congrats!

Sorry I have been MIA on mud. I decided that its time to get back to the grind. I will start back in 2016 where I left this off at...

Kennebec Pass 37.440963, -108.007847

It's one of those places we go for a quick trip on the weekend, because it is beautiful and the road is really rewarding.

You can find old mining relics that have been left in the area and over time, have received damage from the amount of snow that slides into the basin.

It's only a friendly nudge. I'm traveling also, so I end up dreaming about my truck and buying stuff for it while I'm gone!

Found this beauty on IG.
I really need a 60...and a 100...and a 40 too!

Anyway Congrats on a nice build.
Thanks David! The instagram page is much more up to date. I really need to dig through all my photos and get this thread up to date. I could use a couple more cruisers as well... First steps admitting you have an addiction ;)

Any reason why you blacked out the TOYOTA on the grill? That makes the whole truck look incomplete.
When I first tried the emblem with the factory white lettering with the black grill, the contrast looked horrible. It made it look like a 16yo owned it, or like it was trying to be a new TRD Pro... It looks way better all blacked out IMO. And from the feedback that I get, I can say most agree.

Truck looks complete since everything else that is not Silver is black.

Also if you look in this photo or most of my photos you will notice that the front bumpers bar covers the emblem, I think having them emblem blacked out doesn't make the front end busy.

Rear Bumper Build

For any bumpers on the 60, I usually look to @TRAIL TAILOR since I really enjoy his designs, and supporting a small business owner, and a good guy is always first on my list.

Jason knows that I enjoy building stuff with my dad, so I asked him if he would do a kit for the rear with a pre-bent ladder.
