Just thought I'd share my work progress for my overland build. It will have a Ursa Minor top, but I have to wait for that! Let photos speak for themselves

Up next is adding 15 gallon water tank in the rear footwell

You didn’t waste anytime gutting it out :like:
Where there factory mounts that you were able to use for the ARB fridge?

How difficult was it to take the carpet out? Also, is there any noise cancelling material like in the JK's, the weird spray in foam style stuff that takes forever to get rid of? Curious to see just from the standpoint of rhino-lining the floor...

while Im sure OP can give the best insight since he did pull the entire carpet...I did some poking around in mine, from what i could see it was as clean as his pictures...so it should be easy to rhino line etc.

Nice looking overland. Are you planning to add some new parts or do some mod?

I have huge favor to ask.......While you have it apart can you check which wires are the speaker wires (roll bar)? Your help is greatly appreciated. I will not get home until later this week and would like to install a powered subwoofer.

Really stoked for this build. Did you buy the stove drawer or make it?

I could be incorrect, but it looks like the Adventure Trailers fridge stove slide combo.

Good eye! It sure is! I had to drill holes in the floor. Slight modifications due to the larger storage tub in the floor.

Waiting on some parts but I hope to have updates next week. Working on the framing for marine plywood shelving with t-slot square framing ( https://8020.net/ )

Not too bad at all - interior stripped in about 4 hours. Seat and seatbelt bolts are a little tough. Didn't see any noise canceling. It was all easy.

I was going to rhino line but decided against it. Once the plywood and all my gear in the Jeep it'll quiet it down but it's not much louder from what I can tell as it sits now.
