    My first Jeep, a 1983 CJ7!

    I'm in Western NC, and the Jeep is in Louisiana. I haven't had a chance to get down there and pick it up yet. If my memory serves me it's either a 4 or 6 cyl. Not a v8, I'm sure on that one. My plan once I have it in my possession, is to get it running, and drive it lol. I have a lot going...

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    https://www.signaturetruckcenter.com/ They are Chicago based. They sell used FedEx trucks. I got my 12ft box truck from them. It's a 5.4 gas w/140k miles on it. I will say, every maintenance will have to be done to it once (if) you buy it from them. I even had to do the spark plugs and coils...

    I really need to finish the interior of the box truck so I can do 4WD.

    My first Jeep, a 1983 CJ7!

    Thanks for the replies! I'm for sure gonna go through it. I plan on checking EVERYTHING and changing every fluid. New tires, fender flares, light bulbs, etc..... I have been hunting manuals for it already. I honestly don't plan on doing anything crazy to it. Depending on how bad the paint...

    My first Jeep, a 1983 CJ7!

    My father in law has had this 1983 CJ7 since 1993. The last 7-8 years it's been sitting up. I have been joking all these years saying he should give it to me for Christmas. Well, this year, he did. I am a proud owner of a free 1983 Jeep CJ7. I work on a boat, and I was not in town for the...

    FINALLY finished the roof rack. I'll post a video about it soon. Here are a few pics. I added a WeBoost cell booster and Wi-Fi antenna. Next up is the RV door and close off the back wall!

    2000 Ford 7.3L Motovan build (225's build cont'd)

    I flew to Pittsburgh for the SECOND time to get things done with the van. The van is sold, but still needed the transmission rebuilt. We thought she was ready to go, however not so much. The transmission isn't picking up the signal from the TSS sensor. We thought it was the speed controller...

    2014 Ford E-350 12ft SRW Box Truck

    I will end up with half in the front and the other half on the rear with the new design I'm going with. I used to own a 2006 F-150 and it used to kinda have a hesitation on acceleration. I changed the plugs and coils and it went away. I'm having the same issue on this engine. I'm still not...

    Help, type 3 ambulance roof leaks

    If you want a temporary, but permanent fix, you're gonna laugh, but Flex Tape actually works. From the makers of flex seal lol... Also self leveling RV roof sealant works well.

    2014 Ford E-350 12ft SRW Box Truck

    Thanks! As it is now, no. I'm probably going to do some re-configuring. I originally had 4, 1"x1" bars under the panels and they just bent. They hold them but there is no way it would last like that. I can't put supports under the cross bars because it would punch holes in the roof. I ended...

    2014 Ford E-350 12ft SRW Box Truck

    I'd mess everything up lol. I ordered 1"x1" bars to go under the solar panels as support. Those were not enough, they just bent. The 1"x2" cross bar I was gonna use for the rest of the rack build had to go under the panels. I'm just gonna have to order more 1"x2" extrusions, like a lot more...
