In on this one too, looking for ideas for my own expediter/bus build, I hope to have the base vehicle this calendar year. Can't wait to see what you do, always need new ideas.

So what are you planning on popping on there? Are you going to build a custom box, or put something pre-made on there?

When I bought this:



I toyed with the idea of removing the axles and putting it on a long-framed UD or NPR Cab Over. Then I talked myself out of it, thinking that truck as tow vehicle, box as garage/shop made more sense.

I'll build something similar to what's on the bus.

Up against the cab will be different as I don't have to worry about blocking the window.

Let's get it started

Got to some serious work on the new rig last night.

My man Steve and I got the rear end dropped down and this morning I finished getting it out from under the frame.

Man,,,everything about this thing is much bigger than the Ghetto Bus and a size bigger than the school buses I'm used to working on.

The rear end is moving exactly 67 inches forward, which is the length of the driveshaft section being removed.
This will also allow the slip joint and it's carrier bearing to bolt up to the existing crossmember one position forward.

I found and cleaned off the axle tag to figure out the ratio, 3.90.
Highways here I come.

I'm liking this build.

Any thoughts on whether you will be extending the condo to include facilities or putting them in the box area?
