No new pics yet. No major changes yet (it keeps raining in California, so it's hard to work on the truck). Also I had to move because the truck was too big and my HOA kicked me out of my rental condo.

I ordered a bunch of Rigid lights to install in the next few weeks and will try to install the tent asap (rain free weekend, but I also have some work travel coming up).

Will post updates when available. The truck is awesome though and getting 13-14 MPG in NorCal commuting. Not bad for the size, power and aerodynamics (like a brick house).

Stay tuned ...

Minor, very minor update.
I removed the OEM spare and the spare winch in preparation for a Titan STAFS aux fuel tank on the Prospector XL.
Little comparison between stock tires on 3500 (33" I believe) and the 40" Toyo MT.

Also, FYI, the stock jack that comes with the 3500 is no longer of any use in a Prospector XL. Fully extended it barely even grazes the bottom of the rear axle. :-)

Btw, the rear axle on mine has an axle breather on it, it extends up to the frame cross member above the axle.

I assume most of you already knew all of this, but I thought I just share it...

Updated pics.

Fun little moment in Home Depot parking this morning. I parked next to a 2017 Ford Raptor Crewcab.
Had to snap a pic.

Also did a tiny bit of work, finally got around to installing my first light bar.
Rigid 30" Amber E-series bar.
It fits in the standard AEV front bumper hoop, but it is a tight squeeze.
Hooked it up to the SPOD 4x4 Universal SE with Touch-screen.
Looks pretty good.

More to come: 50" RDS Rigid (curved) bar on the roof rack, 4 little Rigid Ignite flood lights (2 on either side) to face side ways, 2 Ignite diffused lights on the back with a back-up light kit.

Going to be nice. The AEV hood in the photo, is the black paint or decal?

Painted. The guys at AEV did a great job putting on a matte black paint. I wanted it to prevent glare from roof mounted lights (still to be added).
