Nothing wrong with a skoolie. I'm totally happy with mine. Built tuff and won't drag bottom going in and out of parking lots and down logging roads to that favorite fishing hole. Very easy engine and tranny upgrade. Good luck.

Is there anyway to get some photos and ideas from your skoolie?
What kind of bus is it? Make, model, eninge, tranny, length, ...
Email to me if you wouldn't mind.

OK. Skoolie it is. Have you seen the skoolies that were used in the Outback commercials? There were two of them, a Ford and an IH. Way too cool! They have 4WD and off road tires and lift kits. Shocked All you'd need is an out of service 4WD boom truck like so many power companies use and strip out the front drive and transmission/transfer case. Probably want the drive axle too so that the ratios and wheel lug designs match. Then you could really get into the "choice" parking areas. This would be a really interesting project for someone with the ability to handle the transmissions and axles.
We go to cross country and motorcross races and this sort of contraption would be ideal...my young'n can do this one...done mine...more or less. Wink

Is there a computer program available that will do bus floorplans and schematics?
I have "3D Home" but it is basically useless for anything but a house.

Hi JR - yeh I saw the commercials and those type of conversions are amazing! In my younger days I rode flat-track a lot. We have a private 1/8th mile "Mad Dog" track that all the kids, and a few adults, play on all winter. My racing days are over but it's a hoot watching the kids and teaching them how to keep their machines running and be competitive.
