Jammer ek sien nou eers hierdie boodskap, was maande laas op die groep.
We came back from the shake down trip with a very long snag list! But I guess that is what shake down trips are for.
The panels were made by Custom Campers in Meyerton, JHB.
The steel work is starting to tie everything together in terms of the esthetic value of our truck. And it is all functional.
Branch deflectors still to be added to the front of the cab.
Branch deflectors should save our body when needed.
The Motorcyle Lift turned out great. One of the...
Hey John, I think we extended the standard chassis by 900mm. They say the single cab chassis can be extended upto 1,400mm but even the engineering company warranted by Iveco SA to do the work is loath to go this long! Why don't you email Richard at Pretoria Engineering yourself and ask him what...

Merci. We kept the rear overhang as short as possible and well within legal spec. There is a side-on view of the truck further up on one of the previous pages in this feed (the one taken before we had cut any windows or the door) which should demonstrate just how short the overhang is.
The parts for the Motorcycle and MTB Lift have now been coated and are ready to be assembled.

We had some hinges put on the platform so that we can fold it up and bolt it down vertically when...

The white line in the photo below indicates the position of the awning to be fitted.
The interior is starting to look a bit like we had...
Check out Patriot M/T's 37x12.5 R17 LT 131Q been very happy with mine. And my FG weights 6,400kg when fully loaded!
Gladiator M/T's 37x13.5 R17 LT 131Q are also a monster looking tyre but watch your clearance with standard suspension.
How big is the vehicle you are attaching the carrier to?
Carrier for a Motorbike + 2 MTB's are requested.
You could make the bike platform a lot smaller of course. But this one carries all sorts of other stuff also, it can also carry 2x medium sized motorbikes at the same time.
