    They're installing one on the Expedition Overland Gladiator right now, plan to have it with just that in place over summer before adding one of the PCOR boxes on top once it's all built out.

    You can see him talk about it in their Instagram Story (not sure how long that will be visible) but they're going to push their reveal to YouTube at some point. Sadly it isn't installed in that clip, so I still don't know how it looks. It's all aluminum, so lightweight, I would want it to be murdered out though.

    One interesting detail, the bed/box they're putting on the Gladiator is the same size as the one they have on their Tundra.

    Update: The YT Video

    It's amazing to me how much the folks in Australia will pay for this type of stuff. I mean, I think it is built VERY well... but it's curious what stuff can cost. If I were ordering out of AUS on something like this I would definitely go with Patriot Campers, they seem like legit folk (based on their YouTube channel.)

    Aus has a pop of just over 25 Million and its the size of the US.

    I knew a guy who owned a 1 MILLION acre ranch down in Aus, he paid .25 cents an acre USD. I asked him what did he do with it or raise? Not much of anything, he was a successful businessman and just bought it to tell folks he had a Million-acre ranch. IIRC he leased some out for livestock production and a few other things.

    Most of the population is concentrated in cities. So when an Aussie grabs his Jeep for a 2-week outing, brother he BETTER be prepared. Even in Moab, there is wrecker services to many trails unless they are rated 3+, expect to drop several grand and wait several hours, but in Aussie land, you might wait a week or longer and the nearest human could be 100's of miles away...

    This, absolutely true. And camping is culturally acceptable... whereas it's more of a fringe vacation choice in the US. What surprised me from following the videos the Patriot Campers folk make is how many restrictions they have for offroading there. They came to the US and did Moab for a week... constantly marveling that you were allowed to drive on stuff here that would be forbidden back home.

    It was really funny to hear them talking about camping with alligators nearby (in AUS), it's just a fact of life so why be worried.

    Crocs, not gators.

    We have gators, and griz, and moose, and rattlers, and tics with lime disease, and black widows, and brown recluse, and a number of other critters with unpleasant stingers, pinchers, claws and teeth... But I still use a regular tent. One time in particular I rolled up my tent to discover several hundred scorpions decided to make their home underneath. Another time I flopped out under the stars on a pad with sleeping bag as a blanket. Woke up and crawled out with 2 large scorpions on my belly. I was also charged by a bull moose once while in my tent. His antlers kept brushing the tent fabric. This went on for 30 minutes or so with him charging every few seconds. That one scared the crap out of me. Much worse than any of the various encounters with bears or lions I have had in our mountains. It was about as bad as discovering that the Brisbane River is full of bull sharks when rowing a skinny little racing shell and nearly getting ejected into the water. I never wanted to go rowing in Australia again (well that part is a lie, I would certainly go back for more).
