It really hasn't been all that difficult however.
Great work man! You're doing a great job, no doubt. Have you lost some weight?

Love the way this is coming out. I am hunting for a van and came across this and thought of you. Not the same thing but it looks pretty well done.

That's pretty cool,,well finished.

The bed looks like it might be longer than 8 feet unless the wheels are further toward the rear than normal.

I got shafted big time today.


I also found out it's going to be slightly more to installing the driveshafts than just getting them bolted in.
Because I'm adding to the existing shaft I have to make sure the new shaft is angled slightly compared to the existing shaft.
Usually people who make alot more money than I have designed driveshaft phasing into the vehical so dumb mechanics like me can take em in and out without hurting ourselves thinking about angles and such.
Adding shims under the carrier bearing bracket is how this will be taken care of ,,,,,,,I just gotta make sure I do it.

This little slut needed some TLC and distracted me from the bus tonight.
Probably won't get to spend any quality time with the bus till Sunday as I'm answering the call of riding for the next couple of days.

Do you have the parts for this? If not, and you want to stop by with the riding gear I left at your house let me know and I'll loan you a new seal, bushing, and o-ring to fix this.

Between riding and fixing a plumbing "issue" all day Sunday I didn't get to work on the project much this weekend.

I did mock up the driveshaft on Saturday and make an adapter plate as the new shaft places the carrier bearing 2 inches further downstream.

The Berg is awesome so far.

If I had to I'd buy one again,,,,,,but I don't wanna for at least 3 more years as those things cost more than anyone should ever spend on a dirt bike.

It's a happy drillbit that cuts like this through 1/4 inch plate steel.
