    With your locks. Check the mechanisms. The ones on my latest truck were bent purposefully so it could never lock some compartments. A little bit of muscle and they functioned adequately.

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab

    My toolbox has been a pelican case with everything just tossed in. It was a 2 person job to put in and out of the truck. And it was a PITA to find anything. So on Black Friday last year I grabbed 10 of the Dewalt Deep Pro Organizers with the idea of using them for all the incidents spares...

    Controlled fall. Realistically I should of said lower using the 4 web straps that tie it down. But cut sounds better [emoji3]

    The bike will be strapped to a rail on the back of the truck. If the truck is on its side you cut the straps and drag the bike out. But the plan is to not to test out that theory. As for being off-road, we always say that these are all road rigs. In theory the only off-road will be the last...

    Some more sketchy mockups. My local trailer place had a few hitches on clearance so I grabbed this one which is about the correct width. Final configuration is waiting somewhere in my brain box but this is the general idea. Rear doors will eventually be sheeted over with a hatch/window at the...

    Yes it is a little easier to lift and I don’t actually have a spare tire at the moment.

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab

    Where to fit a spare tire. I have other plans for the cab roof and at 46” diameter and 17” wide and a shade under 400# there are not a lot of options. Plus I still want to keep my bike rack on the back. So my latest epiphany is to make up a rack with a winch to lift the tire and it will also...

    This is more for my information than of interest to most people. Here are the inflation charts for the tires I am currently running. 395/85R20 ZXL Michelin. Interestingly I cannot find a table that goes down to my axle weights for normal running (road) but the off road and sand/mud pressures are...

    SRW vs DRW? Planning to install a coach on a Ford Super Duty but can't decide on wheel configuration (dually?)

    Here is another vote for SRW. I would never run duals on a camper that is going off the pavement.

    Always start with the simple, obvious and cheap fixes before going to the obscure, complex and expensive solutions (usually sourced from the Internet) [emoji1]

    4WD factory built school bus Kalispel. Cat 2016, Allison 2000, 32’ with Diesel heater.

    A must for anyone wanting to do the YouTube/Instagram thing. Imagine combining Schoolie, Overlanding and Vanlife. [emoji1] But seriously to find the 4WD parts under this price would be near impossible...
