First, I name my vehicles. But I'll need to get into it a bit before it can earn a name. My previous overland vehicle was Squirrel.
As I add different items to the truck, I'll update the running list on this post and pictures below.

Meet Mountain Yak.

After 2000 miles 50% road 50% trail/non-pavement, I've decided this is a sure footed mule for a Yeti...

12/6/22 - Happy birthday! Replaced the felt transmission cover with the RCI transmission skid plate with catalytic converter protection.


Planned
~2" lift - product pending
1/7/22 ordered Eibach Pro level 2.0 - This didn't work as expected. It did give increased ride height but at the cost of droop and ride quality. Effectively, the droop was non-existent. After I normalized the ride height to a reasonable articulation, there was about 1/2" added ride height and 1/2" increased droop. The ride once I reduced the ride height was definitely improved over stock. These guys really to their springs, well. I also tried the rear shocks which had much more dampening and added about 3/8 inch lift in the back of an empty bed. The stock rear shocks are extremely light and may only be good for washboard roads at higher speed (until they fade)

Deavers +1 HD

Deaver Springs +3 HD
in bed spare tire carrier - Wilco?
Purchased but not installed - Hidden winch (preferred) or replacement front winch bumper - intercooler relocation

White-Knuckle Off Road sliders - removed the old ones from my Ram Rebel. Damn these are beefy!
RSI Smartcap - Apparently, I've been bamboozled and this husky we're fostering is ours.... 3 huskies can't fit in the back seat area without much blood and fur. Smartcap it is.

lol, I don't have the money for the tires needed to own that name.
 
Awesome! You have waiting a long time for this — can’t wait to hear about your trip home in it.

That looks very sharp Yeti
 
Someone in another thread asked if the emblems had a hole under it or if it was glue on - looks like it is not glue on lol.

Looks great.

Any reason you went with Husky floor matts over Weathertech? And have you found a winch that will work with stock bumper?

I went with Husky because they were better/cheaper the last time I purchased them, 4 years ago.

And the real reason I chose them were because we have huskies and I knew my wife would appreciate it.
This time, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

For the winch mount, I'll need to get the truck so I can measure out the difference between sdhq, swarfworks and Rough Country to see if anything will fit, well.

I'll either go full race, afe or Cobb for the intercooler relocation kit. I'm an afe guy but leaning towards Cobb or Full Race.

Looks sharp!
