    66mpg, 14" Ground Clearance, 3.2s 0-60mph, 1,800lb Payload, 826ft/lb torque, true 4x4, 66mpg.......

    FWIW, from the Tesla Model S manual. Maybe it works below that temp though. Temperature Range Do not expose Model S to ambient temperatures above 140° F (60° C) or below -22° F (-30° C) for more than 24 hours at a time.

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    This rig would be light enough to easily remove after taking the bikes off and also would have the 18" slide out to possibly access the spare tire.

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Looks like a good option. We are currently using Let's Go Aero box. It holds 2 road bikes with the front wheels removed. It also slides out about 18" to allow access to the rear doors. In order to use it with mountain bikes, you would also need to remove the handle bars. It's pretty stable off...

    Synthetic winch line question

    I have no idea what I am talking about, but can you almost double the pulling power by using a pulley in the middle and bringing the cable back to bumper hooks? Seems like that would also get more power by getting more cable off the spool.

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Apologies for the lame artwork, but I have been trying to figure out how to rack bikes on this rig and keep them clean. I think this rack Thule Thule T2 Pro XT 2 - 2" Rack might just fit between the lights and above the bumper lights to allow me to get a custom road cover made to keep the bikes...

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    We spent a fair amount of time looking at the EXD 350 and the other Earthcruisers at the Expo show. Nice looking rigs. The EXD 350 on a single cab truck seems like a decent option for the wife and I. We currently have an E350 Sportsmobile with Quigley 4x4 and really don't want to get much...

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    I just looked at the weight differences for some of the chassis cab versions. You could save 1,000 pounds with the 6.2L gas version versus the 6.7L diesel and another 300 pounds by getting the regular cab (not to mention a tighter turning radius). If Lance can drop 500 pounds and you don't need...

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Thanks for the info. I doubt the wheels and tires are much heavier. I had been thinking maybe the gas engine would be OK, but at 11k lbs. the diesel probably is the better call. Looks great though. We are still planning to go to NC and have a look.

    I see you beat me to it.

    I see there are a couple of exterior and interior pictures at the following link also. MOD and EXD pics

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Lance, What are you planning to show at Expo East. We live in Indy, so it's a much closer drive for us to see the vehicles in NC. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Yes, the wheelbase of 138" gives better turning, the cab length of 92.5" is much less, the cab rear to axle length of 80" should be fine for the EXD box and even a little longer as you say. I really like the convertible bed/dinette though. Gives more living space until bed time. We just sleep in...

    EXD 350 - EarthCruiser on flat bed

    Interesting idea. Quigley 4x4 or UJoint on E350 Cutaway chassis. Any way to connect the cab to the EXD body for a walk through and swivel the front seats? That might be tougher. You would likely have to modify the EXD interior too much. Still, it's nice being able to include the cab as part of...

    The video link says I don't have permission to view. Looks like you are doing a great job on the rest of it though.

    Scott Brady’s weekend with an Earthcruiser

    If you could get a 4x4 conversion on the Fuso gas unit, it would probably cruise down the road nicely also. Love the Allison 1000 tranny also. http://www.mitfuso.com/en-us/models/gas-truck POWERTRAIN: V8 6.0L Gasoline Engine Powering this brand-new FUSO model is a gasoline engine at twice the...
