Ranger nut preparing to drive around the world

Hi there. Just stumbled across the forum recently and noticed someone had mentioned one of my trips. https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=51115

I've changed my company name since then from Maori Expeditions to Safari Pacific. And I'm starting to work on my next huge trip, to drive around the world. Thought you guys might be interested in the build I'm doing as well. I'm extending the cab 30 inches, converting to 4wd and a bunch of other stuff. Here's a concept photo.




I've already finished shortening the bed and started cutting into the cab.





More details are here, until I get a thread started for the build.
