    Most will be at a minimum Lugnut centric which seems to also imply conical lugnuts but if you used your flat washered lugnuts, maybe it is not a big deal. Shipping wont be too bad, single flat rate box for the two...See if you have them and how much you want for them and let me know.
    Brant new hub centric bolted to the vehicle hub and wheel centric for the new wheel cost 60.00 each. But generic are 125.00 for a set of 4. Im just trying to figure it out and talking live would be a great help. If not, I understand.
    If you dont mind, texting would be easier. My cell is 8015028982.

    Hey! Cool, you saw my PM quickly and got back to me, Thanks!
    I am in Utah, 84065 is my zip. Question(s) Based on research and learning the language of adapters, the best approach for the old lug nut pattern and new would be both hub centric (on the axle) and wheel centric holding the wheel, specifically since the 05+ Lugs are not lug nut centric? Hope this made sense. One online shop said to just use 4 conical lug nuts to center the wheel and use 4 of the washer lugnuts to still hold on the center caps...Sound micky mouse but at least an option...

    Hey Scotty.
    My name is Tyce. I am a new member. I primarily joined the group to see of you still had those two wheel adapters that you mentioned you had left over from your build?
    I am building a DIY 1980 E350 Ambulance, my first. I am using the 05+ SD axle and been doing a lot of research on adapters. Anyway I could go on but want to respect your time. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi Scotty - looking at your pictures of redoing a SMB top. We're trying to find someone around here to do ours. The first owner glued solar panels down & they are peeling as is the clear coat. Do you refinish tops or did you just do yours? The pictures make removing the top look a little tricky. Also, what did you replace the interior roof material with? We personally don't have the garage height to do this inside and found one body shop that does RV work but of course they've never seen a SMB - we're in CT. Laura

    Looking for your opinion on your Truck fridge. How do you like it? Opinion on electrical usage? How well does it maintain temperatures especially during summer weather? I am looking to replace my Domenic and leaning towards the Truck vs Isotherm and Vitrfrigo. Thanks for your input past and present.

    Can you link me to where you purchase yours from?

    Hey Scotty, I'm trying to finalize my build before a move to Bend, OR here shortly. Obviously heat is a major requirement for living in the van full-time and 1der mentioned you've installed the Planar heater. Curious what your impressions are, cost and anything else you think I should know. I have a '98 5.4 EB E-250 with a standard roof, so I'm currently comparing the Planar heaters with the Espar D2 and Webasto products.

    What brand and model of shocks did you use on your last upgrade? Have you ever used the Bilsteins?... Looking to upgrade my 1994 EB E350 4x4... Thanks for your time... Dennis...

    iathon, mine is not 4x4 at all but glad you thought so! Just a 2wd with bigger tires. I'm dreaming of a lift/4x4 conversion but hasn't happened yet.
