Do the front seats in the Liberty fold forward? I've been trying to rig something like this for my Cherokee but I cant figure out how to get it done without ripping out the passenger seat (i'm 6'3") and still having enough room (i'm 6'3").Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

^^^I actually got the idea from someone on here that did it with their Honda Element. Was much more legit than mine because I suck working with wood, but I bet mine is lighter even though its a steel frame. Plus the steel frame folds up and I can stack the boards in the back, and fold the single rear seat up to accommodate 1 passenger in the back ...really I am stoked that it worked out so well. Probably more of a fluke than engineering prowess.
Yes my seats move forward, but at 5'10" and under we can sleep end to end, get up and drive without having to do any adjustments to the front seats.
If I were taller and didn't have my woman in tow, I would have carved the front piece of plywood to extend into the passenger seat and move the seat all the way up and tilt it forward giving me an extra foot at least, probably more.
I did have to use a cutter to cut the ends off the bed frame to fit.
That Element is in here I think:

This is in my town, so if somebody wanted I could take a look at it for them and offer an opinion and possibly help get it where it needs to go.

^^Haha, yeah its definitely purpose built, and if my truck ever caught on fire I'd probably burn alive because its not super easy to get in and out of.
Also, you can't see the front view in this pic but its all open cockpit by the head rests and underneath the platform. There is enough mobility and accessible table space underneath there to have some food, set down some coffee or twist one up or whatever you dig.
Normally I would freak out too if my head movement was restricted but its pretty open which lessens the claustrophobia factor a little bit

Totally stoked with my new purchase. I have been drooling over these for almost 10 years and finally got a great deal. My new rig:

I average about 11 mpg. You can see the gas gauge moving while you are driving.

^^ Nice Rig. Try a catalytic heater instead of a furnace. Use your existing venting, i.e. windows. I have the smallest Wave 3 to heat a 5x10 trailer that I tow with a Tacoma. It's more than enough and not as complicated or battery sucking as a standard Suburban RV/Boat furnace. http://www.camco.net/
And back to the topic of this thread: Mt. Bachelor/Powder Corp has added a $10 overnight fee for the parking lot. That's $10 for no services of any kind.

Just traded a sled for this. Expect to see me passed out in a resort parking lot near you soon. The running boards are off and design work for a bed and shelves are in the works.
