      Already have new seats (11176-56031) , the gaskets (90430-17003) were out of stock when I ordered them, but are back in stock now, so gaskets and new crush-washers (90201-08106) for the nozzle leakage line are on there way. Shipping them off to...

      I think about this quite a bit. Once I get to a camp spot would I rather be in a sprinter or even a unimog? Oh hell yes! But while actually driving, the troopy is perfect. We’ve been to places where a sprinter or truck camper type rig is not...

      Yes, that's the wheel I'm running on my 45. I didn't drive the 75 with it, just test-fit and it looked like everything cleared. This was two years ago.

      Is it this one? Wheel Vintiques 12-680604 Wheel Vintiques 12 Series Smoothie Wheels | Summit Racing - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/wvi-12-680604 That is interesting though - I didn't think it was possible to use a 4" bs w/o spacers. They...

      I got these in a 16x8 on my 45 with 60 axles, no spacers or maybe a 1/4" spacer. 4.0" backspace https://www.summitracing.com/parts/wvi-12-670604/overview Test fit them on my 75 and could run them with no spacers, but have 35's on the 16x8s and...

      I spent a few weeks camping there in the early 90's, glad to hear it's still lovely and enjoyable. Driving through Nicaragua at the time all the bridges were guarded by teenagers with AKs and nearly every town had an "arcade" with a few original...

      The brand of my particular console fridge is APLICOOL. yes it has a cordless cellphone charger, and 3 x USB charging sockets (1 on front and 2 on rear) No issues with E-Brake at all...

      Glad I checked in. Interesting build. Since you had the alucab top…..any other considerations other than appearance that influenced your decision to remove it? Was it THAT unattractive? Have you noticed any upgrades in quality or features? I...

      What’s the story/info on your center console fridge? Been thinking of how I could do that in my Troopy. Had the OEM center console fridges in my 80 and Prado overseas… game changer.
    • umpqua
      Then it was time to fit the PDI front mount intercooler from the Antipodeans Then it was fitting the catch can. Also had a friend make up some OEM stickers for the rear Then it was off to Alu-Innovations where the Troopy got a real good...

      Thank you for the kind thoughts. I've got a lot of plans and a lot of updates for this thing. On Costa Rica, I am greatly frustrated by that development. Considering a false lh steering wheel. Or even a complete LHD conversion. Or even...

      Ernesto doesn’t know it yet but he’s taking me on a guided trip of the atacama desert in Argentina next year. Troopy to Troopy. Good guy for sure.

      Here’s the Cooper
    • umpqua
      Good looking truck with some well thought out build additions. Being from Australia I assume the truck is rhd? If that’s the case you’re going to have issue with a drive south as Costa Rica will not allow entry of a rhd vehicle. The workaround...

      I first learned I needed a troopy from Australian 4wd channels on YouTube. I like to camp all over the US west and Baja California and a Troopy seemed perfect. I once drove the west coast from Alaska to Costa Rica in my old 60. I hope to do...

      Check out post 127. Agree there’s not much to go on and I apologize for that. I have all of the wheel info in a file folder but it’s in the U.S. and I don’t know when I’ll be back that way. My suggestion is to call Andrea at Stockton wheel and...

      umpqua replied to the thread Fold Down Tables.
      The wheels were custom order from Stockton (California) wheel. No spacers. There’s info in the build thread with how to order. I only have my phone right now or I’d go back and provide the info. The table is super sturdy. Like as in a mx guy...
