Greetings! So what’s going on here is my best version of a custom, compact, 4x4, all seasons adventure rig. I took a four wheel drive 7.3L Powerstroke diesel truck, swapped the stock bed for a lightweight aluminum flatbed, increased the storage with aluminum boxes, and dropped on a lightweight/insulated fiberglass camper. The combination of a powerful diesel engine, aluminum bed, and fiberglass camper make it a more fuel efficient and capable rig. I am the third owner of the truck. The original owner was a mechanic at a Ford dealership, and the second owner just used the truck to get around his property, that’s why the miles are low. It’s not brand new…so there are some minor signs of cosmetic wear and tear on the truck and camper. The truck runs great with no mechanical issues.
