Seattle GFC Buildouts - etc

Love to see what others in greater Seattle area are doing to trick your rig out!

If you care I am on the east side and could show you what I have accomplished or what not to do🤦‍♂️

Plenty on Instagram have any questions feel free to ask……

Seattle here. Still just kind of getting started but building a little platform and bench in the bed, did some wiring, battery, lights, etc.

NE Seattle! Recently installed Matt Gecko LEDs (upper + lower) that I hook up to the 12V car port on my Jackery 1000x. Next up is a twin ARB air compressor that I’m mounting under the passenger seat. Just waiting on the Desert Does It seat jackers and mount. Got the air compressor from Amazon so hopefully it actually works😶

Love to see some pics. Just getting started, installed the Mantis Claw yesterday!

Ha, yea this rain has been brutal. Without a garage I’ve had to put a hold on my projects.

I love camping at the Gorge tho! Trucks looks good! What wheels and tires are you running on?

Meet up would be fun!

Method 701 w/ bfg km3

Ah, nice. I thought those were Methods. I’m changing out my stock wheels and tires next week for Method 705s with Geolandars (285/70/R17) :call_me_hand:
