A couple photos from the "Overland Expo" at the Yavapai County Fairgrounds. I love this flip-pac even more than the Wildernest. Serious envy going on here. And then on the Taco, I finally see the value in a swing-away on a pickup. This fold-down table has inspired me like never before. If I don't learn to weld for real, I'm hiring someone to make one of those.

more pics please. :beer:That's the only swingout pic I have but if you want more from the expo I have some more. Wanna see a cool Rover Forward Control? A buddy of mine from AZ sent me a bunch while I was recuperating in the hospital last week. He was correct in assuming they would lift my spirits!

That second pic is the Expeditions West Tacoma after James (trailmonkey) bought it from Scott. He did the kitchen mods and some additional fab on the bed and roof storage. There's a thread on Expo about it somewhere....

I agree with you on the Flippac - very cool. That 1st picture almost looks like a short (5') bed, which I thought wasn't available with the Flippac. I need to dig deeper and find out.

I hope your recovery is going well, I bet the Cm pics helped.

I hope your recovery is going well, I bet the Cm pics helped.Thanks, I'm getting back to normal, slowly. I ended up going to Moab, a bit late, and then discovering that I need better restraints or a deeper bucket seat to really enjoy those kinds of trails anymore. I ran the White Rim with a few spurs for fun. Gorgeous! But it took me several days to get home 'cause my back and ab muscles were just too spent to drive the 6 hours home in one shot. Aging sucks!:D

I ran across this overlander in Boulder a couple weeks ago. I thought it was a pretty cool setup.
