    Builds Portland Troopy Build

    Alejandro at overland embassy had a pair of original sidesteps to use with the arb side protection. His dad has an on-site body shop. Painted and installed for $200. Picture is prior paint. Nice to have these to access the roof boxes. All is now well in my arb side protection world.

    Yesterday the troopy loaded onto a container in Panama City bound for Cartagena Colombia. It should be out of the port in Cartagena BY 10/16. We used a company called Overland Embyssy for the logistical,work. The price was $2100 which includes the shipping and help getting the truck out of the...

    Yeah, honestly I’m not sold on the look either. It’s not uncommon for me to overthink things and there’s a lot to be said for simplicity. Maybe if I have the steps to fill in the gap. I can tell you that the front bar saved me from some serious body damage in Guanajuato. If/when I get back to...

    Not much of a photo but this is at the Costa Rica - Panama border where we crossed into Panama yesterday. The crossing took 4 hours, mainly because the power went out midstream on the Panama side. A recurring theme ( Honduras). Observation about Costa Rica is that it’s expensive….about like the...

    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 going to go…..and that includes city streets...

    Builds A Re-Build of 2004 78 Series Troopy 1HD FTE

    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 won’t remove mine but am interested in your take...

    HZJ75 Troopy - campin' roadtrippin' wheelin' build

    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 could be shipping from a point north (Veracruz Mx)...

    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 see if he might have a record of what he sold me...

    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 stood in it to wash the top of the truck. That was...
