Paint looks really nice!mdubgParticipantApril 1, 2019 at 8:14 amPost count: 305
Sounds like a busy week this week!
Franz, I do like the BFG’s, but I think I’m going to go for less aggressive tire. I’m not looking for OG Bias Plys, instead some “stock looking” Radials. The bus is more likely to be riding on the concrete here in N. Texas than the landscape you all have in Colorado & Utah. I did some lookin’ online last night at tires and there is a too much info. You mentioned to look for 215/75/15, but on TS they all say 205/75/15 is closest to stock. I just want to make sure I’m looking at the right stuff for the engine, gearing, and fit in the wheel wells. Please confirm.
Loving the pictures of how this came out. Keep’em coming.FranzParticipantApril 1, 2019 at 8:17 amPost count: 5386
Yeah, 205 is probably better. The 215/75 can be tough to get in an early rear wheel well.
I’m not sure what all the cool kids on samba say.ColeBModeratorApril 1, 2019 at 8:39 amPost count: 2626
I think we had some geolanders on our dc before I switched them to bfg’s. I liked themvolksaddictParticipantApril 1, 2019 at 8:40 amPost count: 840

I think that’s a good idea, especially for your use. I run bfgs or grabbers on gravel roads around here and they throw sooo much gravel, and rocks as big as 3/4″ at my fenderwells! Hate to see that on your truck. The off road tires are cool looking. But they are heavier, rougher riding, and the gravel thing. Most peeps, including me, are not offroading to the extreme that the max traction is needed, it’s just for looks. And the weight makes a big difference, even with a larger motor.John JonesModeratorApril 1, 2019 at 11:07 amPost count: 11223
About to paint removables!!!!! Not even noon yet!!! 😎
Laying out parts to check and make sure of what we have and don’t have…

Removables are sealed and look awesome… about to lay down some L21…
Been going through parts…. I don’t see a speedo, turn signal switch, headlight switch, wiper switch, or wiper motor, linkage assy….. Mike… Are these things you still have.?? Your wiring looked “ok”.. but for $300 I think we will stat with a new one.. this one was already installed last paint job.. so it;s got paint etc on it…
