First thing will be to drop the rear end out and shorten the wheelbase by 67 inches which is one section of drive shaft.

Don't want to have another shaft modified if I can help it.
This is awesome Nate. Congrats on your new find!

I can't wait to find out but it should pull the camper easily.

I think the PO meant 12 meters per gallon, running it hard as he said.....or maybe he removed the plug in hybrid conversion to get 12 miles per gallon for the first 12 miles only...seeing is believing
