Thanks guys; a lot of work has gone into it. Lots of stuff under the skin that you can't see to make it reliable out in the wild.

Love it! You've put a lot of thinking into what you wanted equipment wise.

Okay well since the Jeep got a good response I'll post up some pictures of the trailer I'm building for a base camp.







Here is the tongue box I put on it for base camp power needs. Houses a group 31 battery and inverter. Should handle all my power needs

Thank you;

I also plan a propane system and a rooftop tent for it along with water and food storage. I've already got a 2 meter communications setup done since these pictures that allows it access to the outside world as well as communications with the Jeep when its on the trails

Also houses a small 50qt fridge and portable kitchen. Mostly sourced from the boating and marine world.

i would love to see that trailer in person! sounds like you will be able to have some lengthy camping trips once the trailer is finished.
