Please show ONE example of this. Andy you have a problem, a serious problem. We will see you on Horders in a couple of years and crying to Dr.Drew a few years later.

BTW, owning a house will fix your problems as much as marrying your girl friend will solve your relationship issues. I dont expect you to understand.......

I dont get why he puts this stuff out in public? Another sign of a major problem.



Sorry Andy. Tough love, you should have gotten more as a kid.

Masters gonna bait

Went through the truck more today seeing how everything is constructed and what will be changed. It amazes me how a few pieces of angeled aluminum, fabric covered wood and some screws can make up an interior. Having taken the time to dig into the internals of the box I have a good understanding of what will need to be cut out, reinforced, and what can be reused. On the left side of the box Ill need to have some aluminum bent up to act as filler panels and a firewall once I cut out the cabinets. Same goes for the back where the bathroom will be. On the passenger side the main bench can be cut out to fit the dinette, the rear storage box will be disected to fit the fridge and microwave. Ill take some pics & label placement of items tomorrow so my madness can be visualized. I also believe I need to buy 2 new main batteries for the rig as mine are shot!

A few pics of the interior to come: Sleeping capacity = 4
Couch up

Into bed

Dinette

Into bed

Fridge; Norcold N300 - its a propane accessory


For the interior Im thinking about using a more metallic pallet; silvers, stainless steel, aluminum & diamond plate with some black, white and maybe red thrown in. It keeps with the surgical/sanitary feel on an ambalamps.

Oh here is a funny I found in the electrical box

This seems to be your main priority right now.

So how much did you pay for it?

What is your budget? (this ought to be good)

Why are you spending any $ on this now?

How much do you have for your down payment on your house?

Where is this house that you are buying?

Will you ever learn?

Very cool. I've seen a few of those converted to campers in the Scuba world. Seems to be a popular low budget base. The square walls make for easier converting than a van, plus offer some additional space. Depending on the builder they are usually very stout, albeight heavy.

I think the whole build plan overall is a good one, with one question. Why swap out the Dana 80 for a much weaker 10.5?

Next to nothing. I won't say cause its no ones business till choose to inform.

What is your budget? (this ought to be good)

3-5k for the interior, 3-7k for 4x4 conversion.

Why are you spending any $ on this now?

I Have only bought 1 item to return the vehicle as it would have been. If batteries are required that is an essential item to preserve vehicle systems, not a luxury.

How much do you have for your down payment on your house?

$xxxxx, fill in those x's with numbers 1-9

Where is this house that you are buying?

If you recall before I was laid off, I was days away from actually closing on a house. I Have been looking while jobless and since I will be working again very soon I can really start house hunting again. Can't get a mortgage with verified income.

Will you ever learn?
What haven't I learned, the truck is in the same condition that it was bought in, minus a few stickers. No harm no foul done.

I'll try and be nice unlike everybody else. It's a very cool idea and I hope you manage to pull it off. I think you're being VERY optimistic about how much you're gonna be able to fit back there, but whatever. Cross that bridge when you come to it. Good luck.

Planning new projects for once you have a house is laughable to me now. I've had a house for over a year and haven't touched the Jeep. It wasn't a fixer upper by any means, didn't need much personalizing, and overall has been about as easy as it gets. Still, no time for the Jeep. I'm finally getting to the point where I can start on it again, but I've also been saying that for 6 months. Good luck.
