I think all the wheels have ten lug holes if you look close. Rear axle uses them all, front doesn't.

^^^this. Joe is right, I think. Just can barely make out holes. If not any truck stop/truck tire shop can switch out front two tires to two rear rims. If you go with this swap out put the two front tires on the outside rims of the rear duals. One on each side. Just make sure the tube valve stem is facing out and 180* from the inside duals stem.

You embarked on a 1,000 mile trip and can't change a tire?



Hope you get it sorted.

Try to find a pair of 20" straight tread tires for the front.

They will run cooler and quieter.

You need special socket for the inner nuts on those rears, unless they are REAL early hub piloted wheels. Just not having to mess with those on the road will be worth whatever the front tires cost.

Also, with no front d/s in, it will not be as bif of deal if you can't match sizes perfectly, just to get home.

Straight treads will wear a ton better on front also.

Glad they made it with no major drama. They probably made all kinds of notes on what to keep, change, or fix.

Now the real fun begins...

Hey Guys! I'm back at work. We had some troubles towards the last 80 miles of our travel and my concern was to just get us home. At that time I cared less about updates. '71 800B- Thanks for keeping everyone posted about the travels. Updating on this site just plain sucks while on the road. Having a 3G phone and service that is good but not always plus having one of the girls update is like asking them to change the oil in the rig.

Any how. Yes we made it home! We had some small issues along the way but no major troubles. And for whoever mentioned that I could have changed the tires myself.... I flew into MN to drive this rig home. What type of tools did you think one can bring to easily fit in bag checked onto a flight for me to pop the lug nuts off?! Dont forget the fawking size jack you'll need to lift this monster and jack stands and a breaker bar that is long enough for leverage.... Rant over.

So here are some stats for you guys: (I'll add more as I get them)

Started Driving -7/5 Fri @1pm Harmony, MN
Ended Driving -7/8 Sun @12am Montclair, CA
Total Miles Driven -2,051 miles
Total Days on Road -3 days
Total Gallons Burned -283 gallons
Size of Gas Tank -21 gallons (topped off)
Gas Station Stops -19 stops
Tourist Stops -4 stops (Badlands, MtRushmore, Wall Drug, and Prairie Town)
Name of Rig -Harmony (from the small town we found her in) (i wasnt going to argue with the woman nor was I gonna allow it to be called "the little engine that could" Harmony worked)


I'll try and get some more pics up here as soon as I can and maybe a day by day of what happened. Overall, it was good trip. The Loadstar never got HOT although warmed up on the last few climbs into CA from Vegas. She has a small exhaust leak from the collector on the drivers side (easy fix for next weekend) A small drip (about a 3 drop puddle) now from the Rockwell trans case. All the oils look and still smell brand new. I need new shocks and wished I had bought some cheapies for the road trip. She had a bad bounce on the rough sections. I also came very close to hacking off the Dual Glass Packs and bolting on some cheap mufflers. The sound resonating from within the cab was bad! And to make matters worse on downhill descents they would backfire/rumble like fawking crazy. For all those that were worried about me getting pulled over.....it never happened. Nor did I ever go through a scale, just blew right past them at 50 mph with the Glass Packs poppin!

The first day was a slow start and making matters worst we spent way to long in Walmart. We also learned that 50 was top speed but by that time I didn't care because I wanted the rig to get home under her own power.
I had 2 long rough all nighters on the road while the girls slept in the back but had my iPhone loaded with tunes and several cold Monsters on stand by next to me. I might have wore a hole in my cheek from eating so many sun seeds too.

Again, more to come from this trip.
Thanks again for following along, was cool to know that we had our backs covered in a time of need. Now for the build thread.... just curious where I should post that one.
Jason

Will it really be a "Pirate" type build? It seems Scouts West guys are all into this thing. Honor them with it.

Just as I have done here I have kept updates with both sites. In one hand I am in the Scouts West Club, therefore I post up in that thread as a regular. On the other hand Pirate has a wealth of great ideas from all around the globe. And many guys on here belong to other clubs that Im sure post up as regulars on those sites. Although my "RV Ambulance" won't see the Rubicon I will damn near build it close to run the trail. If anything, this rig as it sits is better suited on Pirate than Binder but it will be in Scouts West no matter what. I just dont see getting a plethora of suggestions from all my SW Buddies that haven't been told yet already. Where as if I also post a build thread here I can get an abundant of suggestions I might not have thought of.

What I meant when I asked what thread to put the build in...I meant the Pirate Xpedition/RV thread or the International thread. My guess is the Xpedition/RV but I wanted to ask anyway's.

I'm glad you guy's made it. I know nobody will flame you for posting here but you would most likely get more traffic and ideas in the expedition section. And just an FYI.. I am William in the FB group.

Congrats on the adventure, but a 10 ton bottle jack and appropiate lug wrenches would have been at the top of my list at the 1st auto parts or Sears tool store I encountered.


I think you will find the best tech and like minded viewers in the tow rig and trailer section. IMHO the expedition forum is populated primarily by a bunch of geeks who are much more mired in silly fantasys and impractical rigs for mundane purposes than in reality.

I have to agree with Chi on the expedition vehicle section.
I'm hoping you do your build thread in the towing section, cuz going into expedition section makes me feel like I am at work surrounded by clueless engineers.
No matter where you put it, I'll subscribe. So for me I gues it doesn't matter.
