Schoolie

Can’t wait to see how this turns out, in Utah we have lots of crawler guys running school busses with the back turning into a flat bed for hauling jeeps and crawlers, seen one where the jeeps piggy back each other to haul two by standing them almost straight up.

We just left Utah a couple weeks ago, took the jeeps through CO and played around a little on Hells Revenge... Tooooo Hot ...

We bailed out early on Hells Revenge and found a camping spot on the Colorado river. This is how us Easteners survive out west in the heat....LOL

I've decided to do a full scale mockup to see what fits and what won't. I feel a couple hundred dollars worth of cheap studs and plywood will be worth it to know what I like and what's too tight to walk around in.. Without tearing out nice stuff if I don't like how it turns out... Here's some progress..

Well worth the investment, nothing beats actually walking around in it.

Should have kept that, it would have made it easier to load the beer keg. :)

It would be cool to build a bus. I will follow along. That is a nice XJ you have too. I am certainly jealous of your Colorado and Utah trip. Once my camper and truck are ready I will be dragging the Jeep out there.
