    Default Project "Snow White" 4x4 Baja Ambulance build

    Hello, this is my first build thread I've done, so hopefully you all like it.

    ++CRAZY AWESOME BUILD STARTS ON PAGE 5++

    The vehicle I purchased for project Snow White, is a 1995.5 Ford e350 MiniMod Ambulance. It has 68,000 Miles on the newer 7.3L turbo diesel engine, with 256k on the ODO. It is currently outfitted with a full UJOR 8" lift and 4x4 package, riding on 42" XZR military tires.

    I am going to build this vehicle out to travel from Prudhoe Bay, AK to the tip of Chile, with virtually a blank check to spend on the build it will be extremely modified, and upgraded with all the right goodies. Tons of items were delivered today (11/5/17) Some of these goodies include 4 200Ah deep cycle Renogy solar batteries, 2000w inverter, x3 260W solar panels, Reverse osmosis water treatment system, Dometic RM2554RB fridge, and Dometic double burner stove w/ sink and glass cover.

    This is the current schedule for exterior upgrades:
    11/6/17- Line X underbody, wheel wells, and the roof of the box
    11/8/17- Full paint job in the color "snow white" if desired i can get the color code for everyone

    Thanks! The trip will be in the 1 to 5+ year-ish range. Depending on how everything goes, and if I decide to ship the vehicle to other countries. Like New Zealand, and Australia

    I just switched from 37x13.50R18 to 38x13.50R18 Toyo MTs. Only 3/4" larger diameter, but an increase of 225# load capacity to 3750#.

    I've personally never used Toys MT's before. Do they wear pretty fast under heavier load, or is it pretty stagnant for vehicles weighing 7k-11k lbs

    Ive also noticed with the 42" tires, my speedometer is off by 10mph, and after calculating the circumference rotation, my ODO is reading 0.08% less distance traveled, so milage is slightly greater than the ODO shows

    My Toyos have been the best lasting and riding and balanced tires I've tried. I've tried a few other brands and always went back to the Toyos.
