  96 F150 camp truck.

The start to my current project/daily driver.

In an effort to save money on gas and stop the wear and tear on my last truck I picked up this old man f150 from a friend.

It was set up prefect for a driver, a 4.9L (300ci inline 6) backed with a m50d2 5 speed. Xl package so vinyl interior and air conditioning. Bench seat up front so everyone can still ride.
Only thing I didn't like was it had 28"s on the back and 30"s on the front and spun way to high on the highway to get good mileage.

First thing to do was a set of 31x10.5 all terrains to get me in the sweet spot for rpm at cruise.

It was then just driven for quite a while to work and was doing a fine job at that and doing truck stuff.

After we got done with our house and decided to part out the suburban I set my sights on making my dependable daily driver into a project, cause I'm smart like that!
After coming to the realization that I can't afford or need a built rig with how I like to use our rig. Taking what I've learned from a life time of car camping and what I would like to do in the future Ive come up with a build plan that should work well.

  Service Park Campground (again)
Posted by: Reserector - 14thMay2024, 10:43 AM - Forum: Outdoor Equipment & Activity - Replies (6)

I had vacation days to burn, so Wendy and I are at Service Park Campground on the Tombigbee River near Coffeeville.
@MarkyB [Veteran Member] and his family met up with me here once before and I really enjoyed this clean, quiet COE campground. 
I haven't been here on a weekend yet, but it's a relaxing place with friendly hosts.
We saw and heard an eagle out over the river, but couldn't get a good photo yet.  Too far away.
There are usually barges going by, but we were told that the lock at Demopolis is broken, so barge traffic is stalled until that is repaired.
