  1. We had such a fun long weekend!! Thank you for this great time!! Link to photo album Sarah's photos
  2. You may have a shot this year as I'm slower after surgery. Haha
  3. So we traded in our Ram truck and picked up a 2020 V8 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. A huge shout-out to the amazing Martin Swanty dealership in Kingman, AZ. There were by far my best car buying experience. We negotiated via email and they were very fair with no games. Then drove up and were done in 20 minutes. I highly recommend using them. The Phoenix dealers were playing a ton of games. Ask for Chuck if you decided to check out this dealership. So now a three Jeep family....God help us! So now that Chris is busy on the other two Jeeps I have something I can do easier off-road trails with. Loving all the fancy features and it is fun to drive! Up next is a set of Animal Off-road rock sliders. We are considering their bumpers too but it gets pricey! We have named her "Cupcake" for now as her coloring is Red Velvet. d rock sliders.
  4. Sharing the Expedition Overland Film Fest. This is approx a 4.5 hour video you can download. Also some cocktail recipes and a packing list in the folder. Link to shared google drive: Link to google drive Link to their YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ExpeditionOverland/videos
  5. Got most of the metal portion of our sleep platform and on board water and portable fridge cage made. Up next is wood to go on top, wiring in the speakers, etc. Chris got delayed taking care of me after surgery so may not get this done in time for the ORP October gathering. Putting two portable fridges behind the front seats. Platform to go over the top. View from the back. will have a 16 gallon water tank in the middle behind the coolers and in front of the planned drawer system. Drawers to be installed
  6. Killing me. this has been on my list for a while and I can't offroad still!! Hope you have fun and possibly repeat the trip in the future! -Sarah
  7. Yes that took a ton of work but we gained a lot of clearance. Still need to cut the bumper once that goes back on.
  8. No issues just now. Updated a thread with a ton of photos and links and zero lag!
  9. For sleeping we purchased the ARB Aluminium awning and deluxe awning room with floor. We are going to remove the smittybuilt awning we have and install this instead. https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/awnings-accessories/814411-arb-aluminum-encased-awning-kit-w-led-light-strip-8-2ft-x-8-2ft https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/awnings-accessories/813108a-arb-deluxe-awning-room-w-floor-2500x2500 This is slightly smaller than our tent so we will work that out. We will have access to the sleep platform from within this awning room. Video of setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUToTmJV11A
  10. For the water system we purchased a 16 gallon RV storage tank from eBay from RecPro. https://www.recpro.com/16-gallon-rv-water-tank-24-x-15-x-10-nsf-certified-and-bpa-free/ This will go behind the fridges and in front of the drawer system. We got a whole bunch of accessories so I can get a pressurized shower, filter the skanky Phoenix water, and refills ports planned to be added. Going to use a locking gas cap for our water fill. Planning on having the water come out the rear of the vehicle to stay away from our new tent set-up. For the wood we followed @theksmith suggestion to use the Woodworker's Source in North Phoenix to get quality plywood. Really impressed with their selection. We also got two heavy duty drawer slides from Orr and Orr. These were only $111!
