    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    Look carefully at the rim profile to see if it has the safety lip that the bead sits on. I am an old bugger reading this on a phone so I cannot tell from your photos. If it does not have the safety lip (and none of my beadlock rims have had them) then I would be very hesitant about running with...

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    That gets it out but you still have to squeeze it into a figure 8 to get it into the new tire. I find it easier/safer to do that in the old tire than in the open air. But it sucks either way. Maybe YouTube university has better methods of removing and installing run flats but I’m too stubborn/...

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    Looks like sidewalk flex caused by under inflation to me. Also if you get a really good ratchet strap around the run flat and squeeze it into a figure 8 you can get them out of the tire. Be bloody careful and make sure you use a really high quality strap because you will need to use a cheater...

    I do know a guy in Bend who uses all Toyo’s on his logging fleet. I will check and see if he has a rep that could help.

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    If you know a certified engineer get them to do an observation only report of the damage and the configuration. Photos etc included and store that somewhere if needed for warranty review. Make sure they are OK with signing on the bottom line and maybe even consider getting the signature...

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    Check the bead profile matches the rim profile. There are a couple of different types. The 365/80R20 that we’re on my yellow truck were MPT and the 395/85R20 are MVT). MPT tires cannot be fitted to MVT rims. MPT rims are not as easy to find as MVT. Also check that the beadlock insert is not...

    Sizing fuses

    Also consider the thermal aspects of any circuit breaker. In my truck last summer my 100amp breakers were tripping with less than 50 amps due to the high ambient temps. (130 + in the cabinet where the solar controller resides.) ANL fuses are cheap if you buy them early and expensive if you pick...

    Looking for a Rock and Roll bed

    I have one sitting in my container that I would sell but shipping would be a PITA. If you are interested I could strip the foam off and see how much it could be shrunk down. A sort of reverse IKEA [emoji1]

    MB 1120 Coming to America!

    Regarding the impact wrench for changing tires. I would forgo the air one and get a Milwaukee high or medium torque M18 Fuel. I bought the best Ingersol Rand 1/2 wrench I could get and with air supplied from the truck system it would not break loose the lug nuts which were torqued to 500 ft lb...

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab

    These are the current cable numbers I pulled off my rig. In case someone else with a Medic Master is chasing them. While the wiring locations may be different I imagine they kept the same cable/wire numbers across all builds.

    Maybe but this cable is in the cab and there is another “Air Dump” cable on one of the nodes in the module.

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab

    Thanks Bob. I am not looking forward to finding the other end of that cable with a tone generator or a meter (or even worse with my decrepit set of mark 1 eyeballs). I am going to ask all the local guys if they need it first. Otherwise throw it up on flea bay to see what I can get for it...

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab

    A question for you ambulance or medium duty guys. Any idea what a wire called "53 Boost Dump" on the ambulance VMUX controller would be for? I am trying to remove the VMUX system entirely including this birds nest.

    This is what happens to the Ford pipes due to expansion and contractions. Then the leak even with oversized donut gaskets.

    The International pipes are an essential modification in my opinion. The amount of power loss on mine from due to wear/leakage there was considerable. I suggest you wrap those pipes while you have easy access unless you are in a salted road area. Makes a lot of difference to the noise level.
