Thanks for the reply's, I found a couple of places to do the 4x4 conversion, looks to be about 15K, which is within reason for this build.
But I do cut and weld, so if someone had done it and I had a resource, I could do it myself and save some change.
I can't believe how cheap some of the buses are, I had no idea.
Any suggestions of good places to buy buses from? I'm in Ohio, so in the Midwest would be great. Again, I'm looking for a larger bus, with a mechanical injected DT466t years 1984-1995 according to my research.
The upside of having it done is it will be new components, I'll be able to pick rear end ratio's, add selectable lockers, etc. , instead of trying to track down all the misc. pieces and parts from a salvage yard.
That can be a real time killer.
Is there a place where I can get bus specs? I see them advertised as 78 seat or whatever, but how long is that?
