Awesome. I’m looking to do a full attic net, so I get your point about wanting to go the route you went. It’s a great setup for what you are using it for. Thanks for all the info and links. Much appreciated.
Same here. My other two rigs had winches in them but I had to make adaptions to one of them (still have that rig).
The summit bar for the Ranger is top notch. The winch access doors are great and I love that they provide a cover if you aren’t running a winch.
I was actually starting to ask myself the same question because I have another big trip planned out West and need to put one on! Planning on hitting up some nice high clearance tracks in various states.
That’s a start! It’s a good looking bumper for that style set up.
I’d love to see some hi-lift Jack points and the rear stick out a bit more to fit a swing out tire carrier. The extra rear poke would also make it easier to stand on for accessing toppers with racks, or for placing gear on (or a...

Last time I posted manufacturer specs for my wheels I got all kinds of responses about how I was wrong, so all the other details asked for, interested members can look it up on their own.
I have additional weight on my rig that affects my...
Hey Steve! Thanks for your kind words! Yes, I always camp with my two dogs. I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback and a German Shepherd. The Ridgeback rides in the back seat and sleeps in the swag with me, and the GSD rides and sleeps in the truck bed. On some nights, the three of us sleep in the truck...
I imported my Nissan Patrol from Guatemala. It was delivered Dec 24. Ford made a Patrol twin called the Ford Maverick, only sold in Australia (and NZ, I believe). So I took pics of both together. Thinking maybe I’ll rebrand the Patrol with Ford. Either way, not many people know about the Patrol...
