You and I should drink beer together. Very similar trucks.

Still have 18's on mine, though and also still need to get around to setting up an oil catch can.

I would be interested to see a pic of what you did with MOLLE on the front seats. I have been considering something like that to mount an IFAK, couple of handheld radios, and other assorted accoutrement.

Likewise on you dual band mount. I drilled my steel rear bumper to mount mine. It functions well, but has some plusses and minuses

@avslash for sure! Beers or whiskey.

When I was in the market for molle seat panels, the only thing available were soft backs. Now, there's aluminum rigid panels that hang off the headrest. I may switch to them, who knows.

The antenna mount I made hangs off the passenger side of the hood. The radio sits in the top glove box. Works pretty well.

Hey. Looking for a molle panel as well. Unfortunately my “friends” are all the Yota folk and they seem to have endless vendors supplying all manner of accessories. Much tougher for us. I really like the molle rear window panels in the cargo area they get but doesn’t appear such a creature exists for the Disco.

I guess I should put this into my gear collection too. I made this a few years ago and it's still running strong. It's my hot water system that allows me to connect to any water source (my 5 gallon mil spec water tanks), propane (baby 1 gallon/5 lbs), EcoTemp L5 water heater, Shurflo self-priming water pump, and 12v built-in agm power or cigarette lighter socket.
