  1. Gotcha One reason I'm considering this is because I bought a parts truck, and it had a set of old ATs on the rear. The wheel appears to be the same size as my own chinook wheels and the tire was a 27x8.50r14. My chinook is currently on jackstands, but when I mounted the AT on the front I can turn it lock to lock and it doesn't appear to hit anything. I'll do the same once it's on the ground and see if I get the same result.
  2. I haven't but I'll take a look at the tag on the door when I get home. It's 4,500lbs +/- An XL meaning? If the 27x8.50 r14 ATs work I'd like to put them on all four corners (including the spare) even though it's only a 2wd. Just one less thing to worry about if I get a flat.
  3. I'm in the process of getting our 1977 chinook ready for a 3 week roadtrip this September. One thing I'm planning to do is to get a fresh set of tires. I'm looking at (4) Yokohama 356 "super vans" in 195/75r14, but I'd like to get something a little more aggressive for the rear. We plan to do a lot of traveling on forest roads, dirt roads, and general areas where cell reception will be limited at best. I'm concerned the 356 tread pattern is more suited for pavement only. I know this topic has been discussed multiple times. Some believe load range D is the only way to go and some believe
  4. I think the original paint scheme from the factory looks great. You can kind of make out the original lines that were painted over.
  5. That is a really good deal for a Chinook. Did you end up buying it?
  6. This is a great area to visit on the WA coast.
  7. I'd double check the seals on all the windows. As for the area around the floormats, I'd check the rain tray and see if it looks like it's rusted inside. Do you notice any wetness under the dash? It's possible there is a leak around the windshield. Nice to see a fellow Chinook owner on here.
  8. Amazing build! Man, you're flying through this project. I cannot wait to see the finished product. Let's see more photos and give us an update!
  9. Where are you located? I'll keep an eye out.
  10. Glad to hear you've resolved some of the issues. When do you leave for home? I hope you do a full trip report for us Chinook/omega owners. :-)
  11. You take the camper portion and I'll take the truck portion. :-)
