K Interior Light Cargo Nets

Hi All, I found a couple of cargo nets the work well in the interior for stowing light cargo against the ceiling of my 710K. I assume they would work just as well for any K-model. Both were pretty inexpensive... My visors were becoming overloaded with beanies, sunglasses and baseball caps, often dum...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

I think these are worth a test. I've got my eye on a 24v gasoline model that I intend to purchase sometime in June to replace the factory unit in my 710K. I'll post back with my impressions.

Re: Interior lights

Another option to consider is LED strip lighting. Pics below are from my cargo area, but would be effective in the cab as well. The relatively inexpensive WenTop LEDs that I used can be found here on Amazon . Mine are wired directly to 24v, but they can alternatively be run from this AA LED battery ...

Re: GPS Speedo

As promised here is the modified installation schematic using two 24v to 12v 3a/5a converters. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LPtyqqbBGT4/VWzXRZslXcI/AAAAAAAA1A8/EfEhCzYbuHQ/s720/4in_and_3-3_8in_gps_instructions_24vto12v.jpg I used a 3a 24v to 12v converter similar to the one shown below.

Re: GPS Speedo

How did you make the install? It appears that our dash hole is 3 5/8 and this one is 3 3/8. Did you have any issues putting it in or making it stay in place? Did you need a spacer or have to make something to get it to fit correctly? The Speedhut unit is 84mm to our 86mm mounting hole. It felt like...

Re: GPS Speedo

Cool find. But, it only operates off of 12v... I guess you hook it up to a converter or step down? The Speedhut unit works like a charm. I installed the $10 DROK 3A 24v to 12v step-down converter below to achieve the required 12v. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-c0f9_Sa4cq4/VVI9n-Xp0SI/AAAAAAAA0...

Re: Nevada Trophy 2013

Unfortunately, no. I was recovering from a concussion at that time and wasn't able to drive. :roll:

I'd definitely like to pursue it again next year.

Re: TOP 10 best Pinzgauer modifications for improving performance If the topic is improving performance , then the Goatwerks 2.7 liter engine and EFI rank pretty high- having driven with and without those mods.

Re: Fat Fabrications hard sides and roof

Andre,

If you get rolling with this concept I'll immediately be in the market for a 712M. I'm excited to see your design for this come together. :twisted:

Re: Overland Expo 2013 in Flagstaff AZ [PHOTOS]

How do you like your Vehicross? The VX is a great truck. It made it into production largely unchanged from the concept vehicle, including the race oriented suspension, so it's capable of relative high speeds when the trail allows. Truth be told the Pinz has been my daily driver since I got it so th...

Re: Overland Expo.2013 in Flagstaff AZ

It was another great OX event with good company. We had the opportunity to meet Morris and Deidre and catch up with Bernhard and Michelle. We didn't take as many photos this year as last due to the fact that we stayed busy with the hands-on advanced courses for much of the time. However, here's a fe...
