Like he said.

There may be some relatively cheap air bag conversions other than going with a factory setup. There are some for pickups that aren't really that expensive.

With that said the Japanese cabover trucks seem to ride better than their US counterparts. And the weight that you are adding will smooth out the ride.

As posted before, here is the inside now:



Before adding more stuff, I'm thinking of painting the walls. Any recommendations?

I like orange.

Texture paint light grey color. Will hide a lot of smudges and grime. Orange might get on your nerves after a while

This, plus it won't darken the interior (I'd go lighter side of...light grey).

I agree. Something light as to not darken an already dark place. It'll get better once I cut a few holes in it.

I've always wanted to do this. Except I'd have to put an entertainment system inside the box while hanging out and doing nothing. Could even put in fold out bunk beds for the desert (if it will even make it- they make AT tires for that size wheel right?) and whatnot.

Nice to see a fellow 3 wheeler nut

Yes, I can even get AT or MT tires. 10 ply, load E. I checked.
I know where to get military tires, too.

("If it will even make it?" Is that a challenge? )

I did not do anything on the truck last weekend. Was busy again:

Went down to Newfy Speed & Sport to pick up a few things. Also to HD. I should have an opportunity to make a few improvements in the next couple days.

Got the walls painted with primer. Used Kilz oil base. It was selected based on the fact that someone opened it, brought it back and was being resold at 1/2 price. I've used it before, I know it's good. I still have 1/2 gallon left. I'll splash that on the walls tomorrow as well. If I'm lucky ill have some hooks up tomorrow as well.

It's been hard to get anything done - working 6 days and all.

I'll try for pics in the next day or 2.
