Mountain Yak - 2021 Leadfoot 402a

One more thing, @Yeti, do you FIT comfortably in the top of your SP? I’m 6’3”-6’4” depending on which 7/11 I’m walking out of and about 212lbs. Wife is about 6’. Have enough room? Even for big feet?

So I'm 6"6, 330 with a 15+ foot and my wife doesn't approve when I sleep on my back (the likely reason that Grizzly came around). We use the 6" megamat and when I inflate it correctly, have a very comfortable night's sleep. albeit, on my side. I'm considering making/buying a pillow/mattress extender for the removable grates so I can sleep on my back, sans wife.

@ 6'4", you may be able to sleep on your back with your toes skyward but it'll be close. Some people sleep head towards the wedge. in which case Bozo would have amble toe room.

I just picked up my interior lighting solution from GTFO, a couple 39" LEDs and a 10" for the kitchen, use my switchpros 9100 for the internal power management, and am finishing up my reasonably removeable kitchen and cabinets which double as a second bed.

This week, I'll be finalizing some templates for the insulation and magnetic bug screens

Nope, don't like this, at all :) I can even refill my 100 pound lpg tanks (3) with the SP still on. They need to be the 49" ones but still happy about it.

Sneak peak on the kitchen: 2 cabinets tied into the Ford bed management and some builtright brackets

Thinking about it. I haven't decided on any trips yet, this year. I could see me doing a trans-arkansas run in March/April. I'll let you know, maybe you guys can come out on the western side of my trip and check it out.
 
More notes.
Icon 2.5-3" coilover for Tremors:
24 5/16 extended length
Still the icon 198587 spring which is either 700# or 550# depending on who you speak with @Icon

1.5" thread showing from factory
Guessing the body will corrode again, badly.

If you think the body is going to go to crap again. Have them PPF’d before you install them. Even do the threaded sections up to the collar. Then install the springs again and wrap the upper threads.
 
Just read through all 12 pages- your build is what made me join actually. I saw in the first post you mentioned Deaver +3HD on the planned list, is that still in the works? Beautiful truck and now following to see how it progresses.

Welcome! Glad you made it. I actually have something in the works for when I get back, next month. I'll make sure I post it all here.

This is exactly the build I am trying to do. Is there any chance you can share the file and more info? I am not good at this an plan to watch a ton of tutorials, but would save me so much time to no design from scratch.
Thank you so much!
 
This was the workspace for it. I made most things modular and grouped them to get a better understanding of how things will fit. You'll notice I changed up my design a bit in V2 which gave me more space and it is more useable. Now, if I could only get that slick '24 tailgate for my 21, I'll be set.

If you want V1, let me know. tinkercad's "hide" feature is going to be useful to hide the iterations.

echo - your posts around the overland/camp/topper build have been extremely helpful as imagination (and dollars!!) can run wild around possible options in the short bed. just seeing your modules and what does and does not work is great as decisions are made. Much appreciated!

Yeah, if you open it in tinkercad, you can "slide" the drawers, make the open cooler visible, etc. it was really helpful to get me to my PoC unit. The only thing I haven't decided on is how to make the front a bit cleaner. I'm literally printing some dummy pieces now to see how they act.
