Overland Kitchen and Gear Sled deliveries have started

Overland Kitchen and Gear Sled deliveries have started

It's been a busy week. On Monday, Matthew drove to the metal fabricator to pick up parts. On Tuesday, we sent out the first batch of Under Seat Covers and on Friday, we shipped out 7 kitchens. Both the Original Camp Kitchen and the new Overland Kitchen now ship with our reversible Overland Gear Sled, capable of exiting either the Driver or Passenger side of your truck. Installation is still a breeze and are largely the same as our original Gear Sled for the R1T. Please take a  moment to watch this video.

The main difference between the original kitchen and the Overland Kitchen is the method by which each module attaches to the Gear Sled. On the original kitchen, there were plastic feet kind of shaped like a boot that you slipped into the oval holes and rotated a quarter turn to secure. To accommodate the  new kitchens are fitted with twist locks instead of the little boots. Before you set the kitchen module into the gear sled, take a moment to make sure they are oriented as in the photo below. I'm showing a wood kitchen because it provides greater contrast, but the powder-coated aluminum and bamboo kitchens use the same fastener.

 

 

With the twist locks in this position, fit the modules into the gear sled and then twist the lock to secure the module. The open storage bin can just sit in the gear sled slots and does not need to be twisted locked. This is because it doesn't have the cantilevered position that the opened sink and cooktop modules have.

In the coming weeks, we'll post a video on how to switch your Gear Sled to exit the opposite side of your truck. It is best completed in your garage or workshop and will take about 30 minutes.

As always, we're here to help. If you have questions about your installation, please feel free to reach out for assistance
