    I've been trying to get mine ready to move into and hit the road! There is a guy on YouTube that has been living in the back of a Tacoma for 5 years.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Yes, I could. But I’m glad I don’t have to. Single vs. family. If I’d had then money to buy a Tundra when I was young and single, it could have been a fun thing to do.

    @Bailey did it, and I loved living vicariously.

    Nope. Lived in the back of a 73 Blazer for a few weeks between leases when I was in my 20’s. Don’t think you could add enough amenities to make me do that again. The upside was I parked a private pond each night so rent was a dollar in the mail box they had set up at the gate each night.

    Lived in mine for 1 year. We traveled through 21 states in that year. It was something I'll never forget

    that’s awesome. What was the best mod you made? And what do you wish that you’d done differently?

    When I was younger I came upon hard times and lived in my Honda Civic for 7 months. I took the passenger front seat out so I had more room. Better and safer than living in a box. A fitness facility had a membership special for a dollar a month. Went every morning and used the locker room to get ready for work. The experience taught me to save my money and to never assume tomorrow will be the same as today.

    Good luck on getting a woman. I've learned job skills since I was 8 yrs old that prevents this nonsense

    Best "mod" was the 2018 Four Wheel Campers | Raven Shell

    I would have done a custom leaf pack in the rear vs. airbags, If I could do it again

    When you are young you can live through just about any inconvenience. Been there and done that. Older age, not so much.... At 69, I don't like anything (much). Get off my grass!
