Very nice!
Allow me to ask a question though: What is the purpose of transporting two Rhino Rack crossbars on your Leitner rack?

Bit of a long story… in short we needed them before we picked up the rack. They are now to be delivered to another forum member.

I see, so there is no direct reference to the Pan American trip build ;-)

Your steering wheel is on the wrong side :p

Do you have a rough travel route through the US?

Yes, folks keep on alerting us to the issue. 😀

Headed north we’re straight up the coast CA - OR - WA.

Headed south TBA but we’ll be on the East Coast (ME?) before coming west then south.

Keep in mind the Right Hand Drive vehicle ban in Costa Rica might cause issues. I'm not sure if it applies to passing through, but worth looking into.

Love the drawer system!
Yes, we’re pretty much presuming that Central America is off the list, at least for this vehicle. Thanks!

Do you have a link to the threaded plates you’re using on the dash for your Ram mounts? Do you like them? Thanks in advance and good luck with the trip!

Sure, this is what we’ve used:


Pleased with them - looks fairly factory and doesn’t rattle or anything.

I’m assuming you’re using this behind the infotainment screen? How did you secure it to the dash?

With that said, I was actually referring to the pieces in the center section (where the seat heater buttons are normally located). Looks like a threaded insert or something that the ram mounts can tie in to?

Ah, I see. The diamond-shaped RAM mount has a fastener hole centre that matches the Grenadiers faux-modular trim.

Those rectangular things you see there are magnetic mounts for a UHF radio handpiece and/or handheld.
