Re: Balancing on factory wheels

Some folks have gone the DIY route with BB's and other substitutes materials. After some trial and error with my 255/85R16 BFG KM3s I definitely recommend against the BB/DIY approach . Specifically, the larger/heavier (per bead) airsoft BBs don't disperse as early as proper balancing beads. In my c...

Re: Webasto Air Top 2000 Install

My hardtop is new fabrication by Andre at Fat Fabrications due to some "unpleasantness"... Anyway, the new top has additional framing and reinforcements. The top has paneling in the interior upper corners that runs the length of each side in order to conceal electrical, etc. I mounted the ...

Re: Webasto Air Top 2000 Install

By the way, if you search eBay for "Webasto Air Top 2000" you should find a number of Russian sellers selling in the $600-$700 range with a "Best Offer" option. A $500-$550 offer should get you one of these heaters. It did for me. If you can find one, a 24V petrol Chinese heater ...

Re: Hatch rattle fix?

My roof hatch has developed a rattle at the hinge at speeds over 50MPH. I've confirmed this is the rattle site, and it largely seems to be due to some play in the hinge pin. It goes away with some upward pressure from inside and the noise can be replicated when stopped. I can imagine several possib...

Webasto Air Top 2000 Install

After doing an inspection and some minor repairs on the original Eberspacher heating unit I decided to err on the side of caution and installed a new 2KW Webasto 12V gasoline Air Top 2000 in its place. I already had a 60A step-down converter installed for the EZ PS, so I pulled from that for the hea...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

Well, the 5KW AIO diesel unit was not the right fit for me, on numerous fronts: too high output, diesel, and less than ideal physical fit. So I went with a 2KW 12V gasoline Webasto Air Top 2000 STC that I was able to source out of Russia (via eBay) for $550 (Best Offer), which is what I was seeing f...

Re: Wheel Balancing Beads

Used them for years..had tubes in my MT's. Now have or running tubeless on stock rims. Used the little round pellets that go in air guns. Went to the sporting goods store and got a big jar for $25 and put 8 oz in each tire. Work the same as the balancing beads for less money and do not get stuck in...

Pinzgauer Cargo/Kitchen/Bed Platform F/S

Hello All, I recently removed the cargo/kitchen/bed platform from my 710K as we're doing a complete revision to reduce weight and increase functionality. The platform could be installed directly into a 710/716 (K or M) as-is or retrofitted to a 712/718. The unit has 3 cargo boxes, 2 dry storage spac...

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...

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

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 ...
