I chopped a giant hole in the roof of my last rig installing a high top (4x4 van). I think it was like a 4 foot by 9 foot hole but that was all body-on-frame construction. I know it might ruffle a few feathers: I will be chopping most of the roof out, but not planning on doing a full blown cage..........more of a "halo" around the new opening with two kickers down to the trunk area. Combined with some sliders, and maybe some frame reinforcement it should compensate for the roof skin and the cross members that are getting chopped.The chop is a big step indeed. I wouldn’t do it without a cage (or plan for one in the long term). Although, a properly structured 48x24 “access hole” wouldn’t concern me much if positioned toward the rear.
Let me know if V3 comes about!
Is that top a westfalia, or another brand/ roof to tent to modify?
Does he have a build somewhere other than socialmedia? I don’t do FB/Tw/IG/etc... looks like a killer rig.
Took Saturday off and checked out another camper rig at a downtown meet. @sasquatch.the.nomad on Instagram. Full aluminum Comanche camper. Build is solid!
Funny thing was the meet consisted of ~40 Toyota’s and only the two lone jeeps. Hah!
As far as I know just Instagram at the moment. You can still search his user on google and it’ll show you a good few pics taken from ig.Does he have a build somewhere other than socialmedia? I don’t do FB/Tw/IG/etc... looks like a killer rig.
I google the Comanche, couldn’t find a build. Did find a few pics to check out, I’d like to see more. I’m curious about those tow mirrors, maybe GM?
The mold does make production/manufacturing a solid possibility.You planning on pulling more than one top off of your mold? More than 2 Jeepagons?
PS shot you a PM
