Re: front wheel hub steps

I don't have any experience with the T-Lo step, but I have lived with the Cold War hub steps on my 710K for over a decade. As my daily-driver with tens of thousands of off-road miles clocked I can say that the length of the steps has never been an issue with obstacles. Furthermore, for the 10-20 tim...

It all looks excellent so far. Well done! Looking forward to a performance report from your test drive. :)

Re: VW Jetronic mechanical fuel injection swap

Do you have any intention or willingness to reproduce the custom bits for other forum members once you've sorted all the kinks?

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

Back on topic! Any update on how these are working and installation? I am particularly interested in the All in One units. Jason, did you get yours installed? Unfortunately, no. The weather warmed, COVID set in, and I've been "working" from the trail through much of this crazy time. I'll definitely...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

If a Pinzgauer doesn't fit your needs as it comes, WHY DO YOU OWN ONE? I'm pretty sure that no one here has an army to outfit, so short of being a military memorabilia collector most owners and potential owners see an extraordinarily capable platform that with a little tweaking has the potential to...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

For anyone considering one of these, now may be the time. It seems Chinese product prices are tanking across the board due to the current virus concerns. I just picked up this 5KW AIO unit for $135 on Amazon and there are plenty of options to choose from in that price range. Published dimensions mak...

Re: 3saurus/Battleborn rear bumper and "Fuel Mule" carrier

Cool. Any pics of the unit alone? Are they keeping this design on file for others or was it a one-off? Is there a bushing in the hinge? Any talk of adding a zerk fitting to grease it? Lockable latch? Vince, A gallery of the carrier in development/fabrication can be viewed here . I'll add some addit...

3saurus/Battleborn rear bumper and "Fuel Mule" carrier

After identifying a number of shortcomings with my previous bumper/carrier combo I got with 3saurus in Las Vegas to assist me with a more functional redesign of this familiar tire/fuel carrier configuration. Below is a list of improvements over the previous design: Divorced carrier design allows car...

Re: EFI on a 710M

Also keep in mind that the improved mechanical performance comes at the expense of some additional electronic complexity. I highly recommend the 2.7L upgrade, but I've also been bitten by an electrical bug in the system while deep in the sticks. Like all of the various aspects of the Pinz once you l...
