    continental mpt81 feedback?

    Anyone with an older Ford 550 with the solid front axle have comments on the MPT? I'm in the middle dust of a 550 build and am hoping to convert to SRW with the MPT's. Anyone have experience with siping them and how that improves performance on snow and ice?

    Another super single wheel thread. Anyone know about these 20" military wheels.

    I meant with the military 20" wheels. I'd still need an adapter and bolt kit for each wheel. Yup 1st attack makes an 8 bolt pattern wheel for the 550.

    Just got back in. It was a blue bird day, just a little windy up top, but that's pretty normal for that place. Skiing was good. I'm not a great backcountry skier, my fortay is ice climbing. Thanks for the comments folks. After getting adapters and bolts and hoping things fit, I think in the...

    You're sure a Buzz kill Gabe! LOL, you must just chuckle when you see my posts! I'm just following right down the path you've already tread! Seriously though, Thanks for the valuable info. Now I'm heading off to the Columbia Ice fields to do some glacier travel and crevasse rescue practice with...

    I had hoped to use WCC adapters and bolts. But as seems my quest. The only real route for SRW is 1st Attack. With the 30% exchange on our dollar it sure hurts!

    I figured it would be too good to be true. THe Kijiji ad I could get 4 for 450.00.

    Another super single wheel thread. Anyone know about these 20" military wheels.

    Just spent three weeks on vacation in Mexico and with no TV and the spring weather at home got me planning on my truck. It's at the upfitter getting the roof rack and solar panel rack installed. I'm basically at the point that with my 550 build I stay with stock 19.5's in a 245 70 19.5 or go to...

    Post Pics of Your Hard Side Camper!

    Are you putting a flatbed on the Chassis then mounting the camper on that? Side tool boxes?

    Did you put any underlay under the vinyl plank? I was planning vinyl plank in a very similar color, but got a screaming deal on some cork click together. Should help keep the feet feeling warm.

    Got the start for my 550 build

    Finally some nice weather. Roof rack and solar panel racks going on this week. Finished putting all the furs on inside today. Just a little wire to put in then I can do the spray foam insulation.

    Diesel here in Alberta is 1.27/l so in BC you're probably still 1.45+.

    Hey Gabe, what are you at for weight loaded for your rig. I'm 5100 rear and 5000 front but my box isn't built out yet. With it being -35+ for the last month I'm still star gazing about tires and wheels. I talked to the owner at 1st Attack Engineering last week. Very informative discussion. I was...

    That's great information. What did you use for the floor vent?

    My thoughts exactly on building my rig. We love to camp near the crags and ice climbs and not having to pay for hotels is a bonus. Most campsites here are closed in the winter so you need to find a place to crawl into with the rig and boondock.

    Natures head composting toilet in colder climates

    I was planning a vent anyway with the black tank so putting one in isn't an issue.

    Natures head composting toilet in colder climates

    I plan to have 1.5 " of spray foam insulation under the floor and in all walls and ceiling. Pretty easy to find a spot to dump 2 gallons of pee so I'm getting more impressed with the composting. I also saw a youtube video of some long time rver's that tried the cassette instead of their natures...
