Decided on a communication method for the truck. Purchased the @midlandusa #mxt575 because it fits neatly in small places and is high powered. We’ll have to see if a external speaker is necessary. New antenna cable came in to replace the magnetic mount. That’s as high as I can get and probably want my antenna! I ran out of zip ties and will clean up the loose wires. 🤦‍♂️ 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #M1010 #cucv #k30 #campulance
You need a better antenna. Go with a 1/4 wave.. you'll thank me.

Where have you been going lately in that right beautiful rig of yours, Mad Texan?

What super sights are you seeing?!
I've done a few nights here and there since going to MAOF. I was hoping to make the Steel Soldier Rausch Creek event last weekend but ran out of time. I'm planning on being in central PA this coming weekend for 3-4 days and do some down time...

How well do you like the seats? I am looking for ideas on new seats.
I like them a lot! Side bolsters hold you in place nicely and the flatter bottom is easy to get in and out of which is nice with a lift. They've softened a little but aren't mushy like the originals. Monday's ride home was 3 1/2 hours of both back roads and some highway and I have no complaint's and I'm a bigger guy at 6'4".

Which model Corbeau Seat did you go with? Asking on behalf of my wife who has been bugging me for something more comfortable :ROFLMAO:

Hit the road and had great weekend with great people! Staying just outside Tuscarora State Forest, we had more food, adult beverages than needed and burned a lot of wood! Had great conversations and laughs! Mother Nature tried to dampen spirits but she was unsuccessful!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #M1010 #cucv

Thanks for the information on the seats. I will look them up and see what they are like.
Seat brackets may be another issue.

Tuscarora State Park is just down the road from us!

Here are the brackets I used. I did do a little customization for the inner front brackets and drilled holes for the inner rear mounts where the originals bolted to the seat belts...


Next time I'll have to let you know, maybe I can check out your clean CUCV's! I do plan on going back to Tuscarora for sure. Beautiful there!

While I was camping a while back a friend Phil @down2mob did a walk around of my M1010.

The guy's a hoot; everything is "rad"!!

I like at the end how he says just try out a build ("dive right in"), and after that (and the inevitable learning curve), you'll be able to do anything.

There's a lot if wisdom in that. Just get started (whatever it is).
