    3rd Gen Toyota Pickup - Budget Expo Build

    It has been a while, but since I started posting on YouTube I figured I'd post this Little Red update here: Hoping to make some updates and changes to the truck in the new year (y)

    Element Metal Fab RTT Cross Bars I figured it was about time to get the RTT back on the truck, but since it's normally parked underground I have limited height to work with. I went with some low rise 6" cross bars from Element Metal Fab. They're a universal set that will fit multiple widths...

    3rd Gen Toyota Pickup - Budget Expo Build

    I pulled a couple of the overload springs out of the bottom of mine. It'll depend on how your leaves are set up, so it's probably worth a phone call to All Pro.

    3rd Gen Toyota Pickup - Budget Expo Build

    Oh, it's got A LOT of rake right now and I have already pulled a couple springs out of the OME HD leaf packs... once I add my RTT back on and whatever other gear I decide on, I'll have to see if I have to take any other leaves.

    Fresh meat! Just installed a set of BFGoodrich AT KO2 285/75R16s. For the first time since building the truck it is sitting on all terrains. I must be getting soft. Really stoked to cut down some highway noise and increase traction in the snow this winter. These 33s (approx.) seem to make a...

    Dometic Fan-Tastic Vent Fan 2250 After spending a couple nights in the van without a vent we decided this should be a priority. The heat in the summer is one thing, but the humidity is another. Nobody likes waking up hot and clammy. Gross. The Delica currently (get it, electric current...

    3rd Gen Toyota Pickup - Budget Expo Build

    Thanks for the kind words. Just pulled most of the camping gear off the truck and giving it a good clean right now. Trying to figure out what to do next with it. It's in surprising good shape for how much it has been beat on for the last 80,000km. I guess constant maintenance and replacing...

    New Seat/Bed Cushions So it seems that foam is pretty expensive no matter where you get it from. I ended up buying three pieces of 4" thick foam from the aptly named Foam Shop. They also make covers in house so I got a few to match the foam pieces at the same time.

    Upper/Lower Ball Joints and Tie Rod Ends So, thanks to Coombs Country Auto I was able to order upper/lower ball joints, and tie rod ends and receive them the following day. I knew that the CV boots were torn, but once everything was apart it was obvious that the CV axles were pretty wasted as...

    Dual Battery Install The Delica "house" battery wiring is well underway. The PC1500 34/78 Odyssey battery and hold down is the only new piece in this setup. I stole the used BlueSea SI-ACR isolator, Blue Sea 6 Blade fuse block (along with the 4 ga wires), and 100A fuses (on either side of the...

    Flooring, Bed Platform Install, Cabinets The first thing I had to do was tear out all of the spray foam insulation that I found EVERYWHERE in the van. Eventually I had a clean slate to work with. I started by laying down some Fat Mat Sound Deadening/insulation on the engine hump and...

    30x9.50R15 BFG AT K02s For once in my life I'm putting small all terrain tires on a 4x4. My usual go-to is to install beefy mud terrains, but this van will mostly see the highway and logging roads. I didn't want the snowball effect of large tires (suspension life, excessive body trimming...

    Hey Deshet, the engine is accessible by flipping up the access panel under the passenger seat/console so it doesn't affect the living space.

    We just picked up a little 1993 Mitsubishi Delica and have started a build over in the Mitsu section here: http://forum.expeditionportal.com/threads/168918-1993-Mitsubishi-Delica-Desk-To-Glory Since it's a 4x4 van that will be converted into a camper I thought I'd pop over here and...

    1993 Mitsubishi Delica - Desk To Glory

    Hey Joe! I just picked up 100 sq ft direct from http://www.fatmat.com/. I figure that this in combination with the subfloor/flooring will be more than enough insulation for the floor of the van. For the sides I might just use the Fat Mat and call it a day since the cabinets will be on one...
