Mountaineer Expedition Build

My DD has turned into a project vehicle. I am building it up to be a capable overland/expedition rig for long range trips to include camping and all around adventuring. We have a few trips tentatively planned already. I just need to get this thing going as we have much that we want to see.
I will be making a roof rack to carry a few items, but most will be carried in a trailer, so to keep from putting too much weight up top. Also, it will be nice to have the roof top tent set up on top of the trailer, so I can unhook and leave the "base camp" in place and go wheeling.

Here is what I have so far:

2000 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0
BW4406 (not installed yet)
Black Rock 997 16x8 steel wheels (in the mail)
255/85/16 BFG KM2s load range E (In the mail)
D30 (non disconnect) from a mid 90s Jeep XJ

Still needed:
Front bumper
Rear bumper, spare tire/fuel carrier
Winch
Roof rack
Trailer (have plans made up, but have other priorities)
and a lot more stuff...

Well, thats it. Stay tuned for updates.

Remember, its not just the destination, its the Journey...
