    Default Little Offroad Camper - Downunder

    Ok, I did a build thread on this on Ausjeepoffroad and here is the link to it:

    http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...ad.php?t=95819

    There are still modifications happening, so I thought I would put it up here as there is a huge amount of knowledge on this forum and I don't mind a bit of feedback or thinking out of the box.

    I will try to add to this thread now as well.

    XJC: WELCOME to EXPO!

    That is a great build! form and function were well thought out!
    I like the angle iron doors that sit flush with the tub.
    Awesome work!

    Does anyone know of different ways to extend the drawbar by about 700mm? I have a few ideas and will not be taking off the old one to weld on a completely new one. Just want to see what other thoughts are????

    Thanks,
    Yep the black tank is a 70 litre water tank. A hand pump is fitted on the left rear. I should really make up a metal skid plate to protect the tank a bit.

    Ok the plan now is to extend the drawbar to add an additional box to the front, help a little with tracking and make it easier to reverse.

    Did some cutting today
    Cut off the hitch and then the new space required.



    Then a trial fit



    Made sure I have enough room to open the swing away whell carrier (important as I carry the fridge in the back of the XJ and don't want to have to unhitch for short stops) and trial my old storage box which I have been lugging around for 15 years but never really used.



    Should get it welded up tomorrow.
