I sold my other 40 a couple of years ago, after I continued to build it, it was becoming less and less practical for what I wanted.
I took delivery of this one just a couple of weeks ago and I'm eager to build this one. It's a bit long in the tooth and looks better in the pictures but I think it will be a good platform to work with for what I want it to be.

This week I finally got my factory wheels powder coated. Some people say they've had isdues with other rims on an HDJ81 so I've solved the problem. Why would I go out and buy brand-new black rims when I can just get the original factory ones powder coated? I also recently got new centre caps that finally looked properly done with the black rims and I got them done from:


I got my rims powder coated at:


I have to say that I think both places did a fantastic job. The powder coating cost $150 per wheel which may be a little bit stiff but he’s doing my entire factory HDJ81 bull bar and sk8d plate for only $200 and I will post pictures of that as soon as it’s done.

My truck is a wheeler that Ive been bringing back from trail trucks to use for wheeling and traveling. I came up backpacking so living simply is what I know. But I bought a fridge when I was building my 80 and Ive never looked back. This 1976 40 has made me get creative with my use of space. I also have other trucks that I’ll use the fridge in so I bought a Dometic portable battery. I don’t trust myself to remember to unplug the cig lighter whenever I stop so I had to get creative And decided to set it up so the Dometic battery would charge automatically when the truck is on and then cut power to it when the truck is off (thereby leaving the fridge to charge off the Dometic battery only). So, I installed a plug on the backside of the center console and set up a relay to work off the ignition. Now when the truck fires up the battery automatically charges. I decided to tap and solder in an AUX Blue Sea fuse box off the ignition. I also put in an AUX Blue Sea fuse box off the battery. It worked the first time so I figure I’m now at the higher end of the novice rank in wiring.
