i slept in the bed of my truck this summer...it was fun and kinda cozy but also a pretty big PITA, so im not going to be doing this again.





check out this thread on TW, pretty cool and you should get some good ideas on sleeping platforms.

Sleeping Platform Build. Thoughts? - Tacoma World Forums

Also as you can probably tell, my recommendation is a a tacoma, they are some bullet proof bad ass little trucks!



or you can go full retard and build this Pow Chasing Truck. How To: Make A Pow Chasing Truck With Mike Basich | TransWorld Snowboarding

ya, thats pretty dam stupid. I bet even the Pre-Runner with the diff lock on could get up that thing, but the subie just has too small of tires and not near enough clearance. Keep the subie where it belongs, on roads.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

lol people with money and no common sense.

sometimes its scary having the subie awd. it can put you way outside your comfort zone, quickly. smart driving is encouraged in any vehicle in the snow.
