Re: 1st trip with the Skoolie!!

Thanks for the info all. I think the HO BUS is awesome. Nice new style front end, Cummins, perfect length for day or weekend trips. I would guess that bus weighs about 12K, pulling 6-7k?

Re: 1st trip with the Skoolie!!

I liked the HO BUS, but i didnt want to attract the wrong kind of attention!

Last time i weighed it she was 13,100. The Sploder and trailer are right at 6K. Add 1500-2000 lbs of camping chit too.

It been regeared to 3:77's so its not screaming at 65-70mph.

I put the stock pump plate back in and instantly noticed a drop in power, but have been told by alot of dodge boys that i should get better mileage with the high HP plate...??? IDK, im new the the whole desiel ricer thing.
