I need more sleep.

That is pretty cool, black that puppy out. Replace the "School Bus" with TRS Bus, lift it and put some off road tires on it, and you're good.

Yea the stack is kinda 'tarded.......
I love it! I have been lookin for a bus/camper i could afford for YEARS.

My trans just lost reverse in my DD/tow pig. 4L80 = $2400 new or $1000 to rebuild! Im gonna get the trans rebuilt, and sell it to pay off the bus, then buy a beater car that good fuel mileage.
My DD gets about 7-10 in town, 12-14 highway and 6-8 towing my rig!
Im betting the sucker gets wayyyyy better mileage towing.
The PO hopped it up a little. Put a different swash plate in the pump, and different nozzles on the injectors so it would tow better.
Its a guy ive known for years so i trust him pretty good. And its a small town, so it aint like he can hide from me! Lol

It's not a stack, that's passenger pre-heater.

Nice interesting vehicle, for the "I walk a different path" kinda guy, I like it.

180k is just past the breaking in period

Sweet. Extend the wheelbase another 20 feet, put a flatbed behind the sleeping quarters, and add a tow receiver and 5th wheel/gooseneck and you'll be set for long distance weekend wheeling with friends type of trips :icon_thumby:

Camo wrap it, polished alcoa's all around (super singles in the rear), and a rear locker so it can lay better 11's.

Awesome find!
