Well, hope you don't mind a bit more hijacking, K. The red rig looks really familiar to me; I may know the original owner. If so, I've wheeled with him and his family since it was stock, and followed his build pretty much every year since at GSW in Moab:

Edit: Apparently I don't have any pics of it stock on my computer, so they must be on film.

As it was modified at GSW 2004 on Gold Bar Rim:


As it was at GSW 2010 on Pritchett:




And now, back to your thread - gary's thread-hijack has ended.

Nothing says the great outdoors like a projection screen and blaring surround sound at the campsite. I just have one of the inflatable ones, this is pretty cool!

K, every time I think your rig can't get more awesome, you had a video projection system. Well done, as always

i'll be the first to acknowledge this could be a disturbance. even though i'm a gadget freak, i normally like to just enjoy nature when i'm out camping - i don't really even like when people turn on music at the camp loud enough for the whole area to hear it... mainly because not everyone likes the same kind of music. however, there are some trips that we go on which are more "party" camp-outs and i think the movie thing would be appropriate then.
