Wasn't fond of those wheels, but they do look good on there. I definitely think black bumpers and grille would look awesome!

Nice black wheels look good! You do need to do something with those bumpers. Looks good though.

Powder coating the bumpers seems like a plan, but the front needs to be cut down which looks like will interfere with the fog light mounting. Has anyone cut the front bumper? Did it look right? At over 2K for an aftermarket one... Polishing the turd of a stock one seems cheap if it looks right

I like the compressor setup. I wanna run bags on my rear suspension so I'll need one anyway. Are you using a tank with that setup? I'd like to use one and I don't think finding a place for it will be an issue. I figure I could run an air supply for the tires like you did and the air bags with the same setup. I'm just not sure if I'll need some type of check valves on the lines so I don't lose air to the bags when airing up tires. Not that it would mater since once I done with tires I could just air the bags back up. I was also thinking about hooking up a permanent power converter under the back seat since my truck doesn't have the plug in the dash.

No tank, no valves. Nice and simple, just air up and go

Get you some black Plasti-Dip for those bumpers, cheap and easy to do until to can get new ones.

Sweet! My PW buddy BX has over a years worth of nites in his, from the Baja to the Artic Circle. It's been a solid camper. His last mod to it was a replacement fridge/freezer that works like an ARB - no more propane.

Hey Chris

Truck feels good, its definitely a RV and not a trophy truck though ! As long as your in absolutely no hurry it's perfect :)

How are you liking your Coopers ? Mine seem to be wearing well, even at a load range D with that camper they work really well.

They're doing well. Took a trip up north and ran the Niagara Rim with some guys on Expo. It was pretty soupy with a lot of steep hills. Tires did very well holding traction in really crappy conditions. Seem to be wearing well as well. No chunking which is what I have experienced on all BFG's I've owned.
