Re: New Expedition Truck Project... 6x6 vs 8x8!!!

Hi Augusto, I decided for one tire only, since I have the stuff to fix tires and in 150.000 km with Unimog and Kat only had one flat. However, depending on where you go, a second tire might make sense. Cam 1 shows the bird view of the Kat, picture is composed out of the images of 4 cameras around t...

Hi Augusto, below some picture, when thinking of what to put between the Axles, don't forget you need a lot of stuff (hydraulic lifters, barrel fuel pump, towing gear, ...). In my case, the boxes on the roof of the driver cabin are really useful. The previous owner put a lot of thought and experien...

Hi Augusto, Happy you found my comments helpful, here some more thoughts: If you need more space, consider an extendable roof like Unicat is doing them a lot.

Hi Augusto, Sorry, I am a bit late to the party. A lot of meaningful advice has already been given. My view is (and that is what I pointed out with the picture), you should not make it too big and too heavy. I understand you concern about living space but a truck that does not get you where you wan...

Great pictures Stefan, it is highly illustrative! I took a look at your website and you have very interesting information, I will continue to look.

Re: New Expedition Truck Project... 6x6 vs 8x8!!!

by the way ... some information for the german or european readers of this thread: I checked my overall length incl. the FM2 Cabin. It is 10.88cm. (and could be reduced to about 10.70) by leaving enough space for the crane to still load the motorbike. That would mean the door of the cabin would not...

Stefan, So the registration each vehicle per person was just in Ecuador or in most countries? So based in tour experience which would be the maximum exterior dimensions for the truck, long, wide and high? The very maximum that you think would be the best choice to build a new truck as bigger as poss...

This is a 1st Generation SMART (I have driven one for several years), which is only 2,50m long, and the box is 2,55 m. The walIs at the garage where thinner.

Hi Augusto... I am not 100% sure on what I am saying now: I think the Smart 1. editon was the smallest (shortest) . It was allowed to park crosswise in germany. I am 100% sure about that: In germany (europe) Trucks are not allowed to be wider than 2,55m. (2,60 for cooling trucks). So . .. 2,50m car...

2,55 is too long for loading it crosswise. the max. length for that ist ... 2,30? You need to load it in "driving" direction... costs a lot of space too... Yes and I do not like it at all, too much space. How these guys fit the smart in the transversal way??? I ask myself but at least 7 cm each sid...
