    Helper Spring Stoppers

    You may want to consider new bump stops. I removed the spacer on the front bump stop as I found them too firm bump stops. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Underhung cargo boxes

    Ignore the graphics. Playing with ideas. The boxes underneath are 18 inches wide. What I like about them is all the dry storage that’s easy to access ! Between these boxes and the massive amount of storage under the bed we have several times the storage compared to the production fuso camper...

    Ontario Overland Project

    Please let me know if this is the wrong place to post this question. I am in search of some places to winter camp on crown land where we can xc ski and or snowshoe this winter. Truck is reasonably capable (fuso 4x4 on 37s) but it’s 13000 lbs and 11 feet tall. So we need some space and decent...

    Balancing 37's - Beads?

    Heads up on tires and load ratings. We found that once we completed our build and loaded the truck for camping that our rear tires were beyond the load capacity of most 37s. The typical 37 12.5R17 that fit on Tony’s super single time have a load rating of 124. Which is 3500 lbs a tire. There...

    Tuning a fuso any experience with

    Glad it worked on your truck. I worked directly with steinbauer for a month on a 2010 and 2017. Couldn’t get either to work reliably despite clean power and several remaps from them. It was a much better experience using Markus. Way more power and no codes. Remapped it while I had breakfast...

    Lance. Yes he is an awesome guy. Given the calls and messages I’ve gotten from other self builder and earth cruiser owners this is an area of interest. I do think sharing information helps all of us.
