    20 Rivers to Cross, A Trip Through the Oregon Coastal Mountains

    Clarence the 1963 1 ton dodge camper

    Nice looking camper. Not something you can drive at interstate speeds for hours and hours, best for a few hours a day on 2 lane state roads. Fairly simple to work on but not a lot of shops anymore have technicians with experience on older non computer rigs.

    EGR/DPF-to delete or not to delete

    Upfitter for Cab to Axle. Back of cab to center line of rear wheel wells or rear axle. On cab and chassis commercial vehicles 60" or 84" are very common. Also are your frame rails flat from the cab back and 34" outside frame rail to rail?

    (Yet another) '21 Ram 5500 Build

    Got up early Tuesday morning and started the process to wake the wife and daughter. Went and ate breakfast and then went outside and aired my rear tires down from 95 psi to 70 psi because that will help with the ride.🤣 Got to the High Desert Museum just south of Bend at 9 when they opened and...

    7.3 TD 6sp man. Class C Motor home in CO.

    Wow, a nicely done swap. I'm surprised he's not asking $125k the way prices are now.
