Things are still progressing...although a bit slow. I had ARB sidesteps and rails done the other day. The sidesteps are dual cab ones as ARB don't yet make them for spacecabs. They had to be remodelled as the front two mounts fitted but the back mount was exactly where the cab mount was welded to the chassis rails.
Lucky for me the guy that fitted them was an ex-welder and it was no problem to relocate the mount. I wanted to keep the dual cab steps as it gives me a step after the cab which I reckon is really handy.
That is just about the last MAJOR expenditure...next is free wheeling hubs, ARB recovery points x 2 and fitting the snorkus.

Was wondering how it was all coming together.
Looks good.

Well the whole build is almost complete and I picked up my new home the other day. Still things to do but hope to have everything complete by late April.









A few extra details...about 280/300 kgs, 84 ltr water tank, screens all round, marine grade top hatch, fridge slide.

It's 2.1mtrs long and 2mtrs wide. I had it made with a std single bed size instead of the double that is standard. Up the end closest to the cabin is a small 'wardrobe/hanging space. All edges have a lip on them so things can be store on top/bottom etc and won't slide around. I have a 125mm gap between the front and the tray headboard which I will probably get a storage locker of some kind made. 2mm checkerplate or similar. I'd like something with a few different things built in but need to get someone who is not going to charge rolls Royce prices as they seem to do.
The unit also has a Redarc BCDC 1225 charger built in. It has a MPPT controller in it and is wired to charge off the ute or from a solar panel and I have a compartment that I can put 1 or 2 100amp AGM batteries in. I was going to use 2 but I think one will be OK and the weight is a bit of an issue also. I want to keep it as low as possible.
