M.A.N. Truck Build.   Documenting an overland expedition truck buildup. 

This website is a bit of a test for me to learn how DotNetNuke (DNN) works, and to document the build of our new MAN 15.290 truck. We're starting from scratch, with a bare cab-chassis, so we think it will take a couple of years to build.

Mainly, this site is to host our blogs to document the progress of the MAN build, show our travels and other miscellaneous stuff. If you want to start with the earliest post and work your way forward, try using the Timeline page, and slide back to April 2013: Deciding on a Vehicle

MAN Truck Build: Starting with a base 2012 TGM 15.290 4x4.

It is a 12 speed tiptronic with diff-locks front/middle/rear.
