    Love this bus! There a few other buses in the garage but the BBOE gets the most seat time. As I told JJ en route to Moab… itโ€™s luxurious. Thanks John for building it and entrusting us with it.

    In KCW we trust

    BA2697BB-B15C-4AD3-86AE-B5B80ABDDE88Itโ€™s been 2 years since I picked the BBOE up from KCW! Crazy itโ€™s been 2 years. Thanks for the awesome bus and for letting me hang around the past 2 years. Here are some photos from the first trip Emilee and I took to Moab on the way home from junction. Best bus on earth! 8084E717-51EE-4DCD-BF96-DD6CF4AF864FE33DBF69-0B38-4E77-8BA6-0492CA8B051DFF9AB101-762B-4D95-ADCB-A4D5D2B9D92C

    The BBOE got single springs and stock ratio’s on solid shafts last time it was here…. I was happy to hear from Colethe heads were NOT loose like they usually are… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Good feedback…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    The new mid mount is going to be bullet proof… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Just loaded up and took off from KCW! Thanks for all the help Franz and JJ and Pat! And Gretchen for the hospitality! Always a good time at KCW.

     

    BBOE is running like a top! Changed the tranny and rgb gear oil today, rotated tires and gave everything a good look over. Love this bus! Franz helped me fix a bad float in one of the carbs that was constantly dripping fuel causing fouled plugs and it wasnโ€™t running 100%. Franz handleded it! Thanks for teaching me more about these dels๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Bring on some camping!

    Haha you guys are aweosme! Thanks for letting me hang around so much! KCW is a place where shit gets done! I know some things, but if I have questions they get answered. It feels good to know the lay of the shop. I feel like I can get things done faster now.

    Hey JJ. I got my new old speed mid mount for this rig. Can you post a photo of where I weld it on? Thanks

    What was wrong with the Wolfgang one??

    Not enough support for a trans drop bus. With no front nose cone mount the Wolfgang mount is too soft and causes the whole trans and engine to โ€œbuckโ€.
