The engineer said a 120mm might be a stretch but he did find something suitable for the vehicle (after reinforcing the frame quite a bit, of course).

Since the gun mount is controlled with your Kenwood, your antenna stays concealed until the gun is placed in a "parked" position and then the antenna pops up and the radio is returned to its normal operating frequencies. That way, you don't shoot off your antenna!   ;)



There is also a twin 12-gauge mount available.

How about up-armoring the sides, roll bars, search lights, KC lights on top, loudspeaker, run-flat tires, explosive-reactive armor, missile defense system, shot locating system and automatic return fire, mortar launcher, machine guns behind the headlights, sonic cannon, and a warp drive?

There's so much to build, and so little time to do it in, 2012 is almost here!!!  (:D)

I'm not sure who should be more scared - you guys, or me - that i could put together just about everything you mentioned. Although you forgot smoke generators...

No I'm not.  ;D

Although another thought comes to mind - doesn't the 20mm cannon on a sub-5000 pound vehicle make the jet pack a wee bit redundant? Just make sure that Kenwood head unit can run vector math and your reload rate is high enough, and all you need are some stubby wings to keep from blowing out your tires on a landing... ;-)

Do it, but be warned how addictive this can be.

I got to see 505 this weekend. This thread does not to it justice, as nice as the pics and description of work Goaty has done, are. It is much more impressive in person.

I actually touched the driver's side back door!
True story. I'll never wash that hand again.

TW and HOC, you are too kind. Wish the rain had allowed me to give you the two bit tour.

If you're telling me that, during my epic 505 mile journey post-SHTF, I'll be able to grab a microphone on a mobile ham setup in the BOV and talk to my family at our TN home on a base station ham...I'm all over that idea.

Leasing a couple of Iridium satphones, with just emergency airtime sim cards, would probably be the better solution in that event

YMMV

I have the long-range comms covered now. Not the ham, just something a friend set me up with.

Meteor Burst, or something your "uncle" set you up with ?

BTW if anyone ever watches "Deadliest Catch" on Discovery, the ship-ship radios they use over hundreds of miles
are Meteor Burst.

Very popular in Alaska.

Somehow, I get the idea it will never be 'finished.'  ;)

I just now picked up on this thread.  I love it!  It has inspired me to fix up my jeep more than it is to hold this kind of stuff.

But more importantly, anything new going on Goatdog?  Oh yeah and +1 for all the work done so far!

She's morphed a little. Latest pics I have are from the phone and it sucks transferring them here. But I stand admonished and will add it to my list.

Just this past weekend I blackened the Borla. Currently deciding on front bumper and satin black paint job.

Oh yeah, in December I bought a 2010 motorhome and have been modding that a whole lot more than 505. It is a nice mobile BOV.

Wouldn't something that big be considered more of a BOD,  (Bug out Domicile) GD?   ;D

I like that one Doc,

BOV x BOL = BOD

I Plasti-Dipped my grill and most emblems. I did the emblems 3 months ago and they have held up perfectly so I went ahead and did the grill. The coolest thing about Plasti-dip is that it adheres to itself and not what you are coating. This means it is reversible, easily reversible. Yet it is durable. There are guys on the Toyota forums that go wheeling and have Plasti-Dipped their wheels with no peeling.

I blacked out my Borla Duals also with VHT Exhaust paint. That was about 6 weeks ago and they are holding out nicely too.

This is all in prep for the satin black paint job I'll be doing soon enough. Probably after the Shrockworks bumper and heavier shocks are added.




The motorhome in the background is my mobile BOL. Its really where I've spent my time and $ since December. It has had the Goatdog treatment and when I'm near completion I'll start a thread. It is already stocked for a few weeks of survival, except I only have 60 gallons of potable water onboard. I do have means of making the water I drive to potable though. We are going on a 21 day RV trip at the end of the month up to Acadia and a bunch of other places. It's a 2010 Four Winds Chateau 28A and is an inch short of 30 feet long.







I like stickers


Funny thing is I have no stickers on the other four Toyotas but plastered 505 with them.
