International 6x6 extra cab. Interesting part was the rear axles were the same width as the front and ran 395/85R20 tires on bead lock rims.

I didn’t get a chance to crawl around underneath but I would like to get some numbers off the axles.

There were a few other cool toys as well but no photos allowed.
 
That looks sweet
I wonder if those will be available surplus at some point in the future.
I like the extra cab vs crew cab to keep the overall length reasonable.

They are Canadian and I think they keep their gear longer than the US. But there are a bunch of older Iveco’s (I think) that would make a lighter base.

Looking at breaking free for a week and needed the ability to have a shower. So I threw the Eccotemp on the door with a 39 gallon tank and now it’s all go. 2 hours to fit the tank 8 hours chasing fittings, 20 minutes for the Eccotemp and about 2 hours chasing leaks. What a PITA.



Couldn’t find a anyway to put in another fitting for filling he tank so I reused a comeback bladder plug that was sitting around.



Given that both the tank and the heater are temporary I am well an truly sticking to my “do it twice then do it right” mantra.

Yep. It could be another classic case of letting ambition overrule ability. 25 years since I did any serious programming so I hope it is as simple as they say. Otherwise I will have to get the 11 year old granddaughter to teach me
Go straight to the granddaughter lol

Two questions - It looks like you gave up on the Weldon V-MUX system - was there any particular reason, or just the general PITA of trying to work with it?

What are you planning to control with the new system?

Best of luck with the programming project!
