That weight further back might just help the front axle from being overweight. See, another reason to go with the Cummins.

All the money is going right back into the project.
In addition to paying off the engine Swap' which was/is huge $$$.

I need to buy:
-2x captains chairs
-1x sofa/couch
-2 DuoTherm Penguin 15000 AC units
-1 40" LED flat screen tv
-build a custom dash
-Paint Job $$$$

Then I can intall the roof liner and put down the hard wood floors and carpet.

Once the above is all done, the coach will technically be considered done, although, with me there probably is no such thing, because I will always be tinkering and improving things forever.
But it will be ready to showcase at Rats 2012

Another update for those watching the engine swap process.....

Mike called me in a hurry to see if I can cancel the wiring harness from Ed Mawk because he just realized that he has the complete rear section of the ISX wiring harness from the Wanderlodge. This is the section with all the expensive multi pin connectors that plugs into the computer, and all the sensors etc....

Mike said that the guy who is handling the wiring for the swap (Wit) can easily bring about 10 rolls of wire and make his own "home run" from front to back.

If Ed hasn't started my harness yet, I will let Mike and Wit do it...... Ed is over $2000, Mike said I can have the ISX harness, just pay some labor to finish it, maybe $500.

It's coming together..

Awesome, now scoot it back so we can finish it. I think a 6.7 would fit in the hole just fine. Lets go SCR though to keep it clean.

The buyer picked up the Cat C13 about 15 minutes ago, and left a stack of cash, in $100-bills

So it is officially sold and gone, and never to be seen again by us, and will spend the rest of it's life in a tractor trailer hauling across the USA.

The 2000 miles I drove with it, was a pleasure.
But looking forward to experiencing the ISX.

Just giving you the play by play, but no new pic's yet.

David,

I don't believe there has been one person on WOG who hasn't enjoyed watching you spend your money! Keep us posted on the continued updates!
