Looking at the inside of the extended wheel well it looks like you could add a second drive axle in the back and turn the long box trekker into a 6x6! No seams at all Corey--nice job!
As far as the cab/cap seal I would like to make my top removeable down the road but like Corey said the windshield seal seems to do the trick. I think that with the original seal material in there I ended up using about 1.5 full tubes of windshield caulking to seal the top. I don't know how long mine was leaking but I do have a hole in the floor by where the cab strut (stiffener) that Winnebago made bolts to the floor...
thanks corey and rob... that is pretty much what i figured as well. corey... this might be a premature question as i have not fully unpacked the box you sent, but is there an illustration as to where the rubber mounts you included go in the whole assembly process to the frame? ethan was asking if we were going camping now in that picture. he is very happy it is here
no .. dang .. I knew I should have snapped a pic didnt I ? did you get the Pic CD ?
Your using a body lift .. so the rubber mount will sit on the truck frame , then the lift block will sit on the top of the mount .. then the metal spacer will fit between the block and the trekker frame . , and the silencer between that .
did you get it off to line X ?

hi corey... yes! any pics and measurements of the back seat would help a lot! robb has already posted some, but they were of his in his truck. i would like to have some pics of just the raw frame so i can see if i can reproduce it exactly.
thanks for the comment about the avatar! my mom took that picture when we were in NM in oct 2007.
i DID drop it off at line-x this morning and i finally got to look at the whole thing. it looks great just like it is!! several of the guys there could not believe it was cut up like it was and made longer. they said you did a great job! the owner was there and said the longest guess was it would be ready next saturday, but he was pretty sure they would have it done sooner. they are going to line-x over the seams of the side windows like we discussed on the phone. i got the hatch off, the lock out, the trim panel off and the seal off for them. they are going to do the outside and inside of the hatch and trim piece for the hatch.
just finished up taking the crate apart. i have lots of uses for the scrap wood
off to the garage to figure out if i should hang it from the ceiling or build a stand for it to straddle the frame so i can mark the back of the cab!
thank you for the seat bottom pics and measurements! question about the seal... if the seal is running around on the outer part of the bed and top, what is all of the stuff on the inner part? additional sealant?
thanks corey. i will find a source for it and use it liberally question... i found these 2 metal strips in the bottom of the crate under the trekker when i was cutting the crate apart at line-x saturday. do you know what they are for?
