    I suppose this is an option, but not a cheap one, as they'd have to first fill most of the 8-lug holes, then drill the 6-lug holes in both the drums and the hubs. But it could be done I suppose. ...

    8 to 6 lug spacer/adapters exist, but they're spendy, and 2-piece. No hubs are available to convert the military axle. You can buy a standard axle with 6-lug hubs and hydraulic brakes, but not with...

    Unless you weigh about 1000lbs, the camper won't tip up. WAY too much weight behind the front edge of the camper. :)

    I hadn't thought about the plywood X. In baja, that might work OK. The...

    Chilli, your math and mine don't match. :) I think he's asking a very fair price, but he's actually asking $80 more than group buy. Assuming shipping was $100, you'd save 20 over group, and...

    Even more trick looking solution is to install an AEV hood with the vents. Seems to have stopped or greatly reduced the lift on my friend's JK.

    Just an aside from a recent experience - The...

    I don't think support at the corners of the floor is quite what they had in mind when manufacturers want you to "support" the camper for off-truck use... I would be worried about the floor bowing...

    Unless you're driving an OLD Ford, or using a pressure washer with like 10,000 psi or steam, just wash it. You won't hurt ANYTHING under the hood, and it'll start and drive off no problem. (What...

    Sidetracking a bit, but it was because the front axle wasn't rated to handle the weight of a Cummins plus snowplow. Might have been extended cab trucks only too... it was borderline, and you could...

    I know you want the lines to match, but the downside of raising the back of the camper 1" is that you'll then have to raise the front of the truck more like 2" to level it back out every time you...

    The short answer is that there's really NOT an equivalent 15" tire anymore. You can do 31x9.50's in a bias Swamper I think, or 30x9.50 in lots of modern tires, but 32x9.50R15's don't exist as far...

    If you take the screws out of the inside of that window, the glass will basically just fall out when you pull off the inner trim. Take it to a glass shop and get some tempered glass cut, or put in...

    Sorry, didn't mean that you should scrap it, just that there was ample room for AEV to improve on the factory design from what I saw of the early geometry. Rear upper and lower arms on the 1500 are...

    Well, a bigger truck should eliminate the need for those anyway with a camper as light as yours. Nice choice of color...

    That's pretty good info, and I can confirm it as correct. If you have an '03 up TJ, the bottom steering box sleeve will need to be re-located to swap in an early saginaw TJ or Durango box. We've...

    My $.02 is that if it's not sloppy, you should be fine. Jack up the van by the lower control arm on that side and try to wiggle the tire back and forth. If it clunks and you feel slop, something...
