I know that some of you may have been and maybe still are following my 4x4 Vanagon conversion.
Things are still progressing on that but, much like my other van, I came across a "cheap" Vanagon that was not too far away and was "running and drivable".
As a glutton for punishment I thought...
So we have had the discussion on Ronny Dahl's vids on Youtube but I wanted to bring up the Trip vids that the peeps at 4WD Action started posting about 10 months ago.
If it has already been covered then please point me to that thread and and forget this one even exists.
If not, allow me to...
***SOLD***I have too many projects and can not afford to build them all so I need to prioritize.
Unfortunately this is at the bottom of the project list so I have decided to get rid of it.
Located in Athens, Ohio
Anyone that cares about the NCX may have...
I would like to ask a question to anyone that may have some experience or knowledge on the subject of currently available on-board air compressors.
I am on the lookout for a small, durable, quality 12 volt air compressor that I can use to fill a 3-5 gallon tank for use on my air actuated...
***SOLD***I have a kit I bought from Trail Gear to rebuild a set of FJ80 steering knuckles on a project of mine.
I ended up going with a different axle and not longer need the kit.
It is part number 303441-1-KIT on Trail Gear's site and currently sells for about $73...
***SOLD***As the title states I have a locking rear diff for the FJ80.
I bought it for a project and went with a different diff.
It was pretty crusty when I bought it and the actuator is corroded beyond repair.
I was going to build an air actuator for the diff.
As I mentioned it was pretty...
This is going to be wordy so i appologize in advance.
Can anyone tell me what the stock front pinion angle is on an FJ80?
I'm going to be up front.
I am not building an FJ80 but I am using the front axle from one.
However, I need to rotate the pinion down for my use.
This will require that I...
Some of you may have tuned into my old thread about the upgrades to my 85 Vanagon tin top.
In reality my build took a turn and I skipped right to the fun/more involved part of my build, the 4x4...
I am selling a set of 5 practically new Hankook Dynapro AT-m in the 225/70R16 size.
I say practically new because I mounted two of them on wheels so I could use them to move my van after a big brake conversion.
The remaining 3 have never been mounted and all of them have zero...
Well, until I get my garage set up properly to do the 4x4 conversion on my Vanagon, I decided to build something a little less involved so my wife and I can do a little out of the way exploring and camping in this great country of ours.
I don't expect to do a whole lot of rock crawling or...
I have been trying to track down an nice hot weather hiking boot/shoe for some summer trips I have planned.
It seems what I am looking for does not exist. (except for one but I will get to that in a minute)
Here is what I would like to find.
1. Mid cut
2. Some open Mesh construction for...
I have had my van for 2 or 3 months now and have slowly been working on a concrete game plan to turn it into a truly overland ready vehicle.
Unfortunately I am not independently wealthy so I have planned to build the van in stages.
First and foremost is getting the van running and...
I have been working on the design for a 4wd conversion for my van.
After thinking long and hard about how to suspend the vehicle, I can't seem to shake the thought of an airbag suspension set up.
My primary issue with continuing on with an air suspension is the comparative complexity over a...
