    71/76 Rear Door Hinges for Jerry Can

    We’re very lucky here in the UAE to get hold of the 70 Series range. Some that come through have factory fitted rear jerry cans, specifically the 71 SWB and 76 5-door models. I’m trying to track down, through the local dealer’s part department, a rear door mounted jerry can/carrier. It seems...

    New Troopy Engine Choice

    I originally posted this in the Expedition forum, but guess it suits general tech much more. So, I'm starting with a blank canvas, have most of the pieces lined up, and about to transfer a big wedge of cash to a man who can get me a 78 Series new in Dubai. But... am I making a big mistake...

    Suspension Upgrade - 2018 Troopy w/ Pop Top

    Hi Guys, I’m finally getting my Troopy ordered, and while I wait for everything to come in to the UAE, thought I’d order some of the upgrades so that everything can be built as soon as it lands. I’m a firm believer in “buy right, buy once” philosophy and have been looking at BP-51 OME with 2”...
