  1. Bumping this back up. Took it off the market to upgrade the axles. Replaced with custom hardened alloy axle shafts that are 30% stronger than stock Let me know if you're interested! -M
  2. This is if I go with FF duallys right? I'm not seeing singles with that ratio.
  3. What would I be looking for? 4x2, 1 ton, 3.90 ratio, w/o ABS? Just making sure I am narrowing down my search correctly. -M
  4. Here are some pictures of the Full Floating Dually axle for sale near me for $500. I have several questions about it: 1) Does anyone know if the mounts with match up with mine? Apparently there is some variation in that. 2) Similar question for drive train. Same yolks? 3) If I went ahead with this one, does anyone know where I could find some dually rims? 4) I was leaning toward scraping duallys altogether and going for singles, but not sure where to look. I checked a locale yard and there wasn't anything. I really appreciate the tips I was given on where to find a good FF
  5. This sounds interesting. My camper is a 1977. Is there anything I can check out to see if its the right mount width? Anyone on here know? I have it at a shop currently, I told they guy I'd try and see what I could find for an axle and he said it was about a half days work to do the swap when I find one. He was pretty adamant on convincing me to buy one from Arizona and have it shipped because of rust problems and moisture freezing/thawing when they're sitting for a long time. Any thoughts on this? I'm trying to get out of this predicament spending as little as possible since I am trying t
  6. Hmmm... How would I go about finding this person?
  7. Hmmm... interesting. Can I still use the tires I have? They are in good shape. Yes, I'm 10 mins away from Rathe's. Haven't been to Richard's but I can check and see what they have
  8. I've seen some people on here scrap duallys all together and just put an axle with 2 tires... what are the pros/cons to this vs. full floating duallys?
  9. Ha! Thanks, I just found this actually and am reading it now.
  10. So my axle snapped off as I was cruising down the highway. Not that it hasn't been said here before, but I now highly recommend upgrading from the fake duallys! Hopefully you'll do it before this happens to you. Pretty terrifying to be fishtailing back and forth, I was lucky I got it under control and pull over to the breakdown lane. That being said... can anyone point me in the right direction for info on the upgrade? I know it's been gone over somewhere on here before. Specifically, I'm curious what to look for and where for the new full floating axle. Thanks! Mischa
  11. I am sad to be moving on from my camper adventuring days, but optimistic that this gem can get in the hands of someone else that can enjoy it to its fullest!The "Ponty" is a 1977 Pontiex Pont-X SR-2. The model is somewhat similar to the slightly more common Toyota Chinook. It is very rare and unique and I have only found four other ones in my extensive internet research. The camper company would buy truck cabs from Toyota, build out the campers and then resell them. Its total length is 16.5 feet. Which means you can have what feels like a pretty spacious living area and still fit into a normal
  12. It's crazy how these things bounce around if you look for long enough. I'm pretty sure the camper you bought was for sale in Tuscon several years ago. The one-strip paint job on the door and the layout seem to match. I took some screen shots of that craigslist post and wrote about it on my blog! https://pontxadventures.wordpress.com/2014/07/28/pontx-sr2s-for-sale/ Mischa
  13. Wow! This looks looks super cool! Looks like you got a gem. Let me know if you have any specific Pont-X upgrade questions. Mine's the one in the breaking bad looking picture on this thread. -Mischa
  14. Well thats interesting! Maybe I'll just sand them down and fill the holes. Easier that way! It also looks like there was were fender modifications that wrapped around the whole front of the truck that it doesn't have now. I imagine lots of changes have been made over the course of this vehicles life. -Mischa
