New plan for a hauler. Local school got ahold of me and is selling their oldest bus, a 98 with a cat diesel. Looking to build something like this to put 3 jeeps on my 50ft wedge, and haul 10 guys, and gear.

Anyone think I could use the factory shift cable to run the transfer case? Thinking reroute and make a shifter for this side in front of the scs.

Gauge, switch, gps, shifter layout. Stereo goes in opening above silver switch bank, steering wheel is just tacked in for moving around. It's getting a 15 in circle track wheel.

thats awesome!!!!, cant wait to see it in action
love the way you "massaged" the fenders in to clearance the tires
my only thoughts:
4 more pieces of tube and making the stinger more pronounced so you know its gonna serve its purpose if its ever used

Thanks man. The stinger is mostly a bumper that's made to crush, and is replaceable with 2 bolts. I get what your saying in if I ever use it. Where I wheel I should never need a stinger, mostly just need trees out of my way, lol. The whole front is just the 2 bars to mount my coil overs to, then it's going back for more tubing.

i always percieved the stingers purpose as being very sturdy and used in a rear over front flip as :
1. possibly keep you from going over
2. if you get that far over it will act as a pivot point and deflect you to more of a flop to either side than a rooftop crush

like this guy for instance
his would have hopefully stopped him or deflected him onto a door vs the roof. I think most of them are installed for looks and would fail miserably in that scenario

Yea, I wasn't going to have one at all, but Jason saw all the rigs online with them and made a crush bumper that looks like one, cool factor I suppose. Where I wheel is mostly atv trails, and some large rocks, no real rock faces to climb, or descend. This one is to be the ultimate 4 seat trail rig, not really a rock wall climber, but I do get crazy. Lol
