Re: ball joint crossover

stupid question but what is wrong with the ones SAV sells. 52.50 is not out of the normal unless you are a jeep guy. Last ones I bought ran just under 50 and that was for a us truck.

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

have bought a number of items from banggood. None of it has been as cheap as the price reflects. In some cases it is difficult to tell it from the name brand items I have. I guess if you don't have to do R&D and pay large wages you can make stuff real cheap. I still don't understand how it can be ma...

Re: SWPA 710M DeStories Customization

Mike, you only live a couple miles from Justin. Would not take much to get a look since your time is limited these days.

Re: 12v power source for electric steering

I just used the converter that Ei sells with the power steering unit. Has been working very well and lots of hours of operation both on and off road. I also have a converter for convenience with a fuse block for the individual items in the cab area. I also run a solar system with a couple batteries ...

Re: Loose mirrors

There is a spring at the bottom of the tapered part that helps keep things locked into the detent. You will also need to verify that the pin which sets in the detent is not broken or sheered off. An emergency trail repair we had to do was replace the pin with a piece of a sixteen penny nail. If the ...

Re: Voltage regulator failure modes

What we find when people are complaining about erratic charging is the wires on the back of the alternator. They say they have checked them but I have found a little too and small the last stand breaks. Of course the molex connector at the air shroud had always been suspect and both need to be looke...

Re: SWPA trip to Horse Camp Cabin

If I get back there I would love to snap a photo of each page of the log book. Interesting stories and a great way to document the cabins use. We found another house that required hiking to get to it that also has a log book. The entries were not as interesting as the horse camp log but not the leas...

Re: SWPA trip to Horse Camp Cabin

It was a bit of a drive but nothing technical. Far enough with no other attractions along the way and a dead end road all make for a secluded place. There is a ranch in the area that I believe uses and maintains it. They have a sign up that says use what you need but replace with something of equal ...

SWPA trip to Horse Camp Cabin

With the AZ weather in perfect condition for pinzgauer trips We took a couple Pinzgauers out to see if we could find a cabin that I heard about in the upper desert of AZ. The cabin was supposed to be fully stocked and in liveable condition. As luck would have it we managed to locate the cabin and it...

Re: Hard top with removable back wall for running with or without ambulance box?

EI idea to sell a limited production fiberglass hard top. The rest have been custom built. There are a couple of different styles on the SWPA trucks you could check out. Each has its own advantages.

Re: Running lights out

not having information on location hampers advice. For light bulb selections try an emergency vehicle or large truck light store. We have a company around here called The Light House and they have a huge selection of 24v lights and bulbs. If you plan on keeping stock I believe SAV still has a light ...
