    Default Homebuilt overlander

    Hi guys and gals. Have been a member for a while but have not posted much . I have for the last two years just been busy building my own 4x4 overlander. Basically every night after work as well as weekends.
    Please have a look at my short timeline video on youtube at https://youtu.be/eQn7d-srE7Q or type in overlandervanman on youtube search.

    Just one word: Respect.
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Im not going to pretend i know all about drivetrains etc but here goes. I got the van with the bottom end done half way .
    The chassis the Iveco's own chassis which fortunately is a ladder frame chassis
    All the arms blades etc comes off a I think 105 solid axle cruiser. The van had the cruiser diffs but ended up looking too narrow. both the diffs are Patrol y61 diffs These are mated with an american np 205 transfer case which apparantly is bulletproof. Normal iveco 6 speed gearbox used and lastly , believe it or not -it has got a LR disco 1 series steering box because of lack of space.

    Petri- Presies hoe ek ook gevoel het . Dit is hoekom ek dit maar self gebou het . Geen manier wat ek dit andersins kon bekostig nie.

    Yes the NP 205 gear driven transfer case is one of the strongest ever built. The aftermarket Atlas transfer cases is a copy of the NP 205.
    I cannot spot a slip joint on your front prop shaft. Check it out if not equipped with one have it installed to prevent serious damage to either diff or t-case.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    When in doubt -speak to a boffin and you are obviously that boffin on suspension. Im not sure if this is a slip joint because i will have to unmount it on one side to see if it can slide . Really do appreciate your input . that is how catastrophy is avoided . Took pic with rubber pushed back too , maybe you will recognise otherwise i will loosenClick image for larger version.
