Threatening to charge a restocking fee for something not even done yet is such a load of crap, especially after weeks of no communication. If it were me, I wouldn't wait at all to start the charge back process.
Not trying to hijack the thread, but does anyone have any recommendations for a 2 watt mobile GMRS setup? Up here in Canuckistan we are limited to 2 watts of power and all of the mobile GMRS radios I can seem to find are either 5 or 15 watts. Ideally, I'd like a vehicle mounted radio with some...
That looks pretty decent. I've been using an action packer for my chuck box for the past few years. I can fit all of my dishes, cookware, and stove with room left over for dry/non refrigerated foods. Only thing I don't like is the angled sides waste a little space, but se la vie.
Awesome job on the cleanup! Whenever I camp somewhere, I always make sure to pack out more garbage than I came in with. It pisses me right off just how disrespectful others can be towards other users, let alone towards nature itself.
If you have an awning, pointing the lights up towards it will help diffuse the light around the area and keep it out of your eyes. It can also help the light feel warmer, depending on the base color of the lights/awning.
That is an awesome rig! I'm in a SAR group in my area and a lot of the plans for mods to my truck revolve around making it more capable for SAR missions, so it's cool to see your setup. Gives me a lot of ideas for mine, haha.
So other than going to 37s and a new leaf pack off the start, not much different which is pretty cool.
I've heard that wheel hop can be an issue with these rigs; have you ever noticed any from yours?
Any details on the 3rd gen brake swap? Part of the reason I was thinking of the 2002 was for...
I dig the setup! I'm thinking of getting a 2nd gen 2500 for my next rig myself. Haven't quite decided between the 12v or the 24v though, and the disc brakes all around on the 2002 would be pretty sweet. Anything you'd do differently with the build knowing what you know now?
Over the past couple months, I've been researching every little aspect of building the camper that I can think of and I have a rough plan for it now:
Pardon the very rough drawing as I do not have access to any form of CAD, but here's approximately how I'd want it to look. With how tight to...
I was planning on combining the pop up tent portion with either a flatbed, service body, or Aussie style tray bed. If I go the service body route, it would be more streamlined than a lot of the ones you see out there (shallower side boxes to maintain bed/living space, high clearance rear end...
That looks awesome! I have been planning (okay, dreaming about is more accurate) on building something almost exactly like this. Do you have any estimates on pricing? (depending on what options people go for and what kind of vehicle it would be going on, of course.)
