Howdy folks - much work has been completed. Finally got the prototype (001) up on the 4Runner. Very, very satisfied with the results.
Side note - 002 is underway and is looking fantastic. 002 is due to be mounted on an FZJ-80 in about a week or less. Stay tuned.










Fits in the Garage!!

Looks great! Is the the direct mount version or were the mounting rails a separate addition to the tent?

Those will come later. Right now - it makes more sense two tie them to existing off-the-shelf mounts.

At the moment, I am finishing up the first 3. Mine (001)...and two others for friends' FZJ80's. That is my first to-do. After that - get them out in the field to beat the crap out of them.

Direct mount isn't all that terrible. It's just not on my radar for a "do it now" item. I will once I get the tents finalized.

Here is the recipient of 002. One seriously cool, turbo'd FZJ80 with a test fit of prototype 001. 002 will be on this rig heading west to Cruise Moab very soon. Keep an eye for it. A couple notes: This will be a direct mount to get the tent as low as possible. Total height (from roof) is approx 7.5"

For a prototype, that is really well made. I like to fab things but that looks like a large corporation turned it out. Great job. How well does it fit 2 people?

Well...I'm 6'6" and my wife is 6'1". Not many RTT's fit me well. Two of me can fit in this one perfectly.

(Insert reason #217 why I did this. )

Itís looking really good.
It will be interesting to get the feedback of the road tests and camping tests.
Wondering about how it affects the drive ability and road/wind noise.

Awesome. It's hard to get a sense of scale from the pictures. I keep trying to get my wife to go camping more often but her idea is a travel trailer or cabin with a/c.

The first test is highway speeds. If it blows off the top of the 4Runner into a million little pieces, then we know.
