Time for a new project, back together and survived first run

After 6 months of working on this thing instead of sleeping it's done. At least this stage of the build. I was even able to get done in time to go to Moab for Thanksgiving. The three rows of seats sure is nice for the kids, they all have a good spot to sit. Lost a little bit of storage in the back, but still have enough room for a cooler, tool bag and spare parts.

It was a mad thrash to get it all done for Thanksgiving. The cage didn't go out to powder until 11-13, I still had to fix the bedsides, finish the bodywork on the new windshield frame, paint and get the tub lined.
The cage didn't come back from the powder coater until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Needless to say we didn't get to leave on Thursday like I had planned. Leaving Friday morning was just fine though since it ended up snowing in Moab Thursday night/Friday morning.

That is awesome!
I really like how you've integrated the dash components into the cage. Post some pics when you get all of the dash pieces in. Nice work!

Oh yeah, we definitely need more of this one.

Most excellent cage design!

Here are some more pics of the interior and the dash. I don't have any more overhead pictures, will get some when the sun comes back out. That top is a miserable piglet when it's cold.
