Not sure how it would do on the highway but a Duck would make a bada$$ coastal camper! Would also come in handy here in Houston during our Monsoon season. Surely SOMEONE, somewhere has built such a rig (?).

Tango,

I doubt it. Those things are very high maintenance. Heck, a Deuce and a half is high maintenance due to the air-over-hydraulic brake system. Ask me how I know...........

Have you seen Houston when it rains more than 3 drops of rain and half the city is under 3 feet of water.

Las Vegas averages something like 3" of rain a year...and they flood!

In Houston we flood too, but we routinely get 8-12"...in an hour.

Go figger(?).

Still sweating away --- Got my TCM & TPS relocated above the waterline. Don't know what I was thinking when I attached them to the frame. Duh...this is Houston. 3-4 feet of water in the street is routine.


MUCH better location. I just have to avoid any water crossings over about 5 feet. Once everything was an assured fit, I pulled it all back off and painted the brackets and firewall.

Oh...and, I got some shiny stuff in the mail...


A couple of my CAC tubes came so I just had to try a test fit. I was a bit concerned about my measurements but they fit like a glove. Just have to wait on the silicone connectors and T-Bolts now. The last piece of tubing (on the cool side) was found in my mailbox when I got back this evening, but still no connectors.

And...speaking of test fits...


The new LED's really do fit these ancient GE67 sockets!



ONWARD!
