    Default Well Shes getting naked! Camper Part Deaux!

    Started on Camper part 2 decided on crawl through not enough room for walk through Cab version and relocating spare/aircleaner assembly going well got about a week into it so far, will post as I go!IMG_1794.jpgIMG_1795.jpgIMG_1801.jpg

    Will be lil brother of M927 5 ton Camper for son to have when we go camping! High speed gears are in , transmission fixed, And I am impressed with the acceleration, this things goes, so far I have moved things around and Intake tubing came out better than expected passes directly behind engine giving a lot of room to enter cab , will have to use a m900 series air filter canister and place it in front of battery box along frame rails and spare will be mounted on camper section on a winch rail system. Adding 2 feet to rear frame and extending hitch and also a 2" receiver hitch area for common hitch stuff. After calculating weights of material been used I will be at 4200 lbs with appliances so may have to add air bags.

    You can prob get rid of the air hyd pump and put an electric one in its place. An air actuated switch off the air feed to the pump can be used to activate a relay that kicks on the pump.

    I already remounted it it is next to the manual pump where the HYDRALIC suspension cylinder was! It's hard to see cause I am also painting the entire frame black as I go, and I am going to mount a electric/ HYDRALIC pump also cause I need hydralics to work the tailgate on my trailer and also to make the HYDRALIC lift motor for spare that will mounted on rear of camper.
