Because Life’s an Adventure

Growing up in a mountain town one of my first ever, childhood dreams was to have a truck that would take me anywhere.

That dream recently came to life thanks to Cap-it – your one stop truck outfitting shop

JLN_0663Getting the truck dressed up was not just about making our old friend look good again; it was necessary to pull our trailer & supplies needed to live on the road for the next few years.

Our truck – Yoda has been around the universe a few times, with nearly a quarter million km’s of galactic travel, countless ski trips and mountain gatherings – long overdue a rebuild was, yes.

Like most people we had our list of needs and wants.  The truck needed upgraded FOX suspension and ARB airbags to handle the towing and additional weight.  Yoda also needed a new set of Mickey Thomson rubbers to handle the countless miles ahead.  Storage in the Airstream is minimal, so we needed to be creative with the truck and install a Leer canopy, Decked storage slider within the box, Thule roof top cargo box + bike rack and an ARB fridge / freezer.


Our list of wants should have been needs; the K&N air intake & exhaust helped improve fuel economy and increase power (it’s worth it’s weight in gold). We also installed an ARB bumper, PIAA lights and a TMAX winch to strengthen and illuminate the front end.

Thanks to the passion & expertise of my new friends @ Cap-it; we were able to create an intergalactic adventure mobile worthy of all obstacles we will inevitably encounter on the road(s) less travelled.

Dream ON – Because life’s an adventure
