Cool Any skoolie around Springfield, MO?

Just bought a bus and this is a very useful sight. Just checking to see if anyone has done this project around the Springfield, MO area.

Same

I'm in the same spot. I would love to do a 12 inch lift but that seems like a very hard job and one that I could not do.

With cpl of friends anything is possible. Were using the transendence style of lift. But im not cutting at the windows im cutting at the first or second black line so like shoulder or seat height.

Wow, I would not even know where to start. It blows my mind that you would do that. I don't have that type of skills. Good luck.

even if you have only hydralic jacks, n 2x4 lumber which u can easily get there, you can raise the roof. There are also lots of people around there or places like Ozark that have welders to weld up the extensions.

I bought my first bus there about 35 yrs ago, n international conventional and converted it at my relatives place n ozark.

True doesnt take much to lift but need all the square tubing and sheets of metal. Im doing a 12" so i only need to fill a smaller space with metal.

Hey fellas! I am heading down to the Joplin area tomorrow to pick up a bus I won in an auction. It is a 1996 International Amtran t444 3800 with 110k miles. It's located between you both in Rescue, MO. I'll be driving it back to Sioux Falls, SD. on Monday to convert over the next year until June 2018. Then I'm moving down to Pineville, MO. Onto a 35 acre piece of land in the country that belongs to my friend Denny's family. They all live in tiny homes there.

Pumped up to pick up my bus!!!

Hello, my husband and I are here only 30 minuets north of springfield!
We have used the forum so much since we got started 6 months ago.
Just wanted to say hi and see if any other skoolies are nearby
