Not sure what happened with the last few lines above...welcome madog,

Thanks Gunny and all of you. I picked the 1079 to build on...adapt, improvise, overcome...because the box and its systems were all new unused and the truck showed 2600 miles with clean fluids. There are bigger and more easily adapted spaces, but it's hard to outdo the build quality for what it is. I had two Hardig missile cases to use for storage/bunk bases and a dorm fridge and microwave from my kids school days. NAPA ordered the chasis batteries...took a few weeks....Replaced the 50 amp out with an RV 50 amp "in" to run the panel from either side. SamsClub has some powdercoated steel cabinetwork online that fits pretty well. There is a Bluetti coming and a panel rig inwork for the roof and a Sherpa winch on the way. Got an aluminum underbody box for the winch space and I was fortunate to acquire six new Goodyear 2014 wheel assemblies to replace the 1998 Michelins. Finish design and fabrication of the cab top cage, winch mount, box mount, etc.is coming next. Small bites at the apple....
