I'm not hiding behind a mesh screen to confess. I'll say loud and proudly -- I LOVE MY 100. Stock bumpers are all scratched up, rear tail light is cracked, running boards (yeah, that's right) are banged up. I love this rig. Have owned it for several years now and with 150k miles, still runs like a top.

I'd like to get step sliders (for Mrs and kids), a rack from Gamiviti and a RTT.

No tomato shields necessary! Welcome to the 100 series hood. You gonna make Moab during CM? You could probably avoid shipping if you order sliders from one of the vendors and have them truck them out to Moab for you. We will help you install them if you want.

I made a platform last week and finished it up tonight. I used the mat as the template.

I would love a fridge slide but POs are hard to come by around here. This mod cost me under 100.00. Might add a single drawer if my woodworking buddy has time to fab me one..

I used existing bolt holes to mount the platform to rig, so no drilling. Added an extra piece on the forward end to compensate for the dip. I also choose the fridge location because Ben can still recline his seat if tired and I can open the fridge and the lid will stay open.

I am closing in on finishing this rig in short order. It feels like this has been a fast process getting it ready but I just remembered doing CM08 in a stock FJC and then having it ready by early June for the Rubicon...whacko.

Wow - that truck needs a week in Utah. The lack of red dust, black scuff marks, and water stains is disturbing.

Nice job Chris. Makes it much simpler to figure how how to load and lash.

You should put some of those aluminum rails in through there. The milled one's with the slots with adjustable rings. "L-Track" I saw those cheap somewhere, and now I can't find where. They usually run .50 cents/ft, so there must be some serious patent price fixing going on with that stuff. I wanted to put those in the 40 since lashing is such a pain and oh so necessary.

I know red dirt needed... Way to clean.. A week in Utah will fix that!
