Going on the lift today. We have aux fuel tank to install, along with skid plates, and fox coil-over suspension. Once the wheel arches are trimmed, John can think about paint and hatch repair.ColeBParticipantSeptember 10, 2018 at 1:17 pmPost count: 1079
Awesome! Thanks guys. Excited for this oneFranzKeymasterSeptember 10, 2018 at 1:24 pmPost count: 2311
We got a van cafe hatch rack while you were in south Africa too. For the spare tire. Better than the gowesty receiver hitch unit that is known for cracking the frame.ColeBParticipantSeptember 10, 2018 at 6:36 pmPost count: 1079
I think Kb mentioned that. That’ll be better. I like that setupFranzKeymasterSeptember 12, 2018 at 10:09 amPost count: 2311
I spent yesterday welding. The turbo pipe was vibrating excessively while the engine was running. I made a small tab to mount it to the head.
Modified aftermarket coolant catch tank to fit on the firewall.

Those fox shocks are tasty! looking good, which auxiliary tank did you end up choosing? Any thoughts on solar? I was thinking of putting it in the luggage rack so it’s flush with the top of the van, but then I thought about maybe just putting it on the Yakima cross bars that are already on it and use the existing wiring so there wouldn’t need to be any holes drilled into the roof…. I don’t know. I think both would be cool.kevinbParticipantSeptember 12, 2018 at 4:46 pmPost count: 34FranzKeymasterSeptember 12, 2018 at 7:59 pmPost count: 2311
🙂 He must like them, as he is building one for his daughter.
Checking for tire clearance. I could trim and re-shape the rear edge. Or cut it apart and do about 3 feet of welding and grinding to keep the stock arch profile. I’m feeling more like the first option. You guys cool with that?
Looks like it needs a little paint work in those seams either way.FranzKeymasterSeptember 12, 2018 at 8:04 pmPost count: 2311
The lift tank is from foreign auto and supply. It uses a 2wd filler.
We can figure out the solar panels. I think they are pretty simple other than mounting. I’m not too worried about them.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 13, 2018 at 7:28 amPost count: 4591

It’s probably too tall to fit in the dirty shop or my paint booth… 😎 We may have to take it to some semi truck body shop. 😎 😎 😎ColeBParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 9:00 amPost count: 1079
I agree, I’d say cut less. Haha won’t fit? This thing is gonna be big!FranzKeymasterSeptember 13, 2018 at 6:45 pmPost count: 2311
Leveled out with the fox coil-overs cranked up.
