Cleaned the dash up a bit

The leather I put on the old dash peeled around the corners and started to look like crap so I pulled the dash cleaned the panel then powder coated it and a small switch panel that goes where the ash tray was. I think it looks pretty darn good now.

Nice! What do the switches control?

Those seats look great.

How much weight do you think your cargo carrier can hold mounted on the rain gutters like that? I'm thinking of one, but I don't know if it would fit in the garage then.

We do mostly 5 plus day desert trips so the roof rack gets well loaded. We have put eight 5 gallon fuel/water cans, fire wood and other peoples gear up there. The truck has a 3 inch lift with 33"s and goes in my standard garage.
Switch panel controls 2 forward sets of lights , 1 set of rear facing lights and an auxiliary cooling fan for long uphill climbs at slow speeds.
We don't smoke so losing the ash tray didn't matter to us.

Thumbs up Nice Rig

I also like your trailer and ARB Tent. X2 on the seat brand. Looks like you got the right set up for camping.

Thanks guys the trailer is a never ending hobby of improvements and modifications. It started life as a 40mm ammo box for the Sargent York tank that was never built. I just happen to be in the right place at the right time to save it from the scrapper.
The seats are out of a late 90's or early 2000 Jeep Cherokee. The drivers seat was real straight forward to mount but the passenger was a bit more involved because of our transfer case bump, all in all most of a Saturday.
The gauges are Auto Meters from Summit racing.

Randy

Thumbs up Very nice

That thing is really sweet...I really like that you built the trailer out of the ammo box. I was thinking it was a military trailer that you added the Tent to. I am impressed with your whole set up. Those tents are very pricey, but seem to be very nice, do you like it?

I mounted the passenger seat in such a way that it will side far enough forward
so that my 100 lb dog can jump through. I don't really have the rear seat in the truck all that often.

Impressive. More ideas for me to dream about. How difficult was it to install the gauges and get them wired up? Is the wiring stock or something else. Also you indicated that you powdercoated the dash. In the car or out? I wasn't aware that was an option. Thanks for the ideas. Mr. Ed
