Hand tools for truck travel, assembling a new kit.

It’s time to assemble a new traveling tool kit for the 2014 Dodge Ram Cummins crew cab.

Not so fast…changed directions before I got too far.

Starting with this. More to Come.

AT Overland aluminum fuel can carriers

AT Overland (AKA Adventure Trailers) fuel can carriers have been on all of my 4WDs and one trailer over the past decade. Originally they were steel, but for several years they’ve been aluminum, and the latest version is assembled with rivets.

After the first big trip in my 2017 Ram/Cummins with Hallmark Nevada flatbed camper, I discovered the rivets had damaged the green plastic Scepter water can. I found a solution and still love this AT Overland product.

Toyo Open Country R/T Rugged Terrain Tires

This first look video was made immediately after getting this set of Toyo Open Country R/T tires. They have been on our 2017 Ram/Cummins flatbed project for six months.

AEV Ram 1500 Recruit DualSport 4-inch suspension

AEV’s 1500 Recruit with the 4” DualSport suspension package

My 2017 Overland Expo West coverage in TDR 97 included photos and prose about AEV’s new 4” DualSport suspension for 1500 Rams. However, the light was challenging and sometimes it’s difficult to show parts installed on a truck. AEV displayed a 20th Anniversary Recruit with the DualSport 1500 4” suspension at the SEMA Show, and also had the kit mounted on a board for closer inspection.
