Hope you guys don't mind lots of pics. I hardly ever post this thing, so I'm making up for lost time  ;)

The day I bought it:





First lift. Jeffs spacers, slightly trimmed fenders, and 31's:

Can't find the pics  >:(

Added the 2" RRO body lift:





Kinda miss it being all shiny and straight  :'(

Now. After a couple rolls, replacement sheetmetal, major front trimming and BFH mods. 2.5 bs and 33's:

Ready to go meet with the local Jeep group (they are the only local 4x4 group.)

Nice expo rig ski! Great use of the RotoPax! Wondering how many gallons on the Bestop and how it handles the wt.? How did you mount thru the top?

Thanks, I did a lot of research of expo rigs before that trip but find very few on the forum ever use the term "expo rig" so I appreciate your knowledge. Seems most here are only day trippers which is fine but i found trying to do a multi-day trip an interesting challenge in such a small vehicle. We had to carry camping equipment, refrigerator, stove, tools, camera, laptop as well as water and clothing. That picture was from the White Rim Trail in Canyonland National Park outside Moab.  That was a 3 day offroading trip so I needed to carry extra fuel. Each RotoPax holds 2.5 gallons so there were 4 gas containers on the roof outside and I also carried a water RotoPax mounted on the ceiling of the hardtop so  the combined weight was about 85 to 100 lbs including the containers.  During the 100+ offroading miles I only
used 2 of the RotoPax of fuel but at the time I did not know just what my miles per gallon were going to be so I wanted to error on the side of safety. We did not pass another vehicle for 3 days so running out of gas would of been a big problem. I purchased the RotoPax mounts and installed a pair in the outside of the roof and a matching pair for the ceiling of the hardtop so that only 2 holes for each pair needed to be drilled into the roof.
Applaud your entire rig, especially your creative mounting of the RotoPax on the top.  I have been pondering how to haul some extra fuel concerned about overloading the tailgate. Did you get much flex on the Bestop? I would be worried about stressing the latch points or popping the windows! Lol. Did the RotoPax work well? No leaky? I'm sure the WR trail was a good test for this gear, if you give it two thumbs up, I'm gunna do the same on mine! Thanks for the report. You should post it on RotoPax Facebook!

I also looked to mounting  gas on the tailgate but with the spare it seemed small a space unless I would relocate the license plate so I started to look at the roof and ATV accessories. In fact the storage unit on the roof is an ATV storage container. I did not find any problem with the weight on the hardtop. The seals on the RotoPax needed to be screwed very tightly but then worked.  I found that the containers would bulged in the hot sun but even with that pressure they did not leak.  I would release the pressure when it was observed but only needed to do that once then they were good to go.  Two thumbs up to you.
