Up-fitter manuals

Up-fitter manuals from the major trk manufacturers are great for building any rig for expedition. They are free in most cases and supplied in PDF so are easy to use.

Not sure if your aftermarket bumper w/winch is effecting handling or braking, how about that heavy spare and jerry cans out back? Up-fitter manuals will show you the way......

I located an upfitter site to get an idea of what you are talking about. It's good info. Thanks for the handy hint.

I have used information from this site for some of my Wagon modifications.

SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) is also a good source of information, but you need to be a member. I joined several years ago just so that I could get the Automotive Engineering International trade mag -- which is way cool. Getting a discount on books they sell comes in really handy at Christmas time.

Thanks for the info. Here is Toyota's information: http://www.toyota.com/upfitters/index.html

Only possible problem is that upfitters typically deal with current model vehicles, so if you're working with an older vehicle the information for it on the upfitter site is long gone.

The gm one is handy, I've used it a few times. I try to copy out any page that I modify then edit it and put it back in.
