2018 Ford F-150 FX4 3.5L EcoBoost
Family outgrew our 2015 Rubicon Unlimited and decided to move up to a full-size truck for our overland adventures. So here is the start of the new build:

Ordered and waiting

Xtrusion Overland XTR1 Bed Rack
Roam Adventure Co Vagabond RTT

Installed

Built Right Industries bedside rack system
BulletPoint duel dash mount
Communication gear

ICOM 5100 Ham Radio
Midland MicroMobil GMRS
Byonics MicroTrac

Have but not installed

KC Highlight 6pc rock lights going to be used for bed/rack lights
DeeZee Tailgate assist
Rotopax 4gal fuel fuel
2 Rotopax 2gal water pack
2 Roam adventure Co 105l rugged cases

Still need to order (more research needed)
Front level kit & replace factory rear shocks
33” Tires mounted to 17” wheels. Currently has factory 20”
Ditch light brackets and some LED cube lights
Rear Lights for setting up camp and reverse.
Cube lights for the side mounted to rack.

We have been camping out of our Shiftpod 2. We will still be using it when we all go but when just the boy and I go we will sleeping out of the RTT. Cooking we use an old Coleman propane stove, or skottle, or just the firepit. I have a 7lb propane talk that I carry just need to figure a way to mount it to the rack once it gets in. I’ll be adding pictures add the build proceeds
