    Long time no post! New baby is almost 1 consumes just about all of my free time.

    This baby is getting dropped off at a buddies house for me next week, anyone know what the differences are with this 6bt from a Ram 6bt? Off the bat I can tell the intercooler and radiator are going to be way to huge for the Travelall.

    Sidenote/ queation I'll probably need to make a different post for this one, anyone have any experience with the brake systems on these? If possible I'd like to bypass all of the electric/ air assisted brakes to drive it from said friends house to my home which is about 80+ miles.

    Obviously motor mounts, bellhousing and exhaust manifold are all different but can be changed

    If it's not going to cost me too much Id really like to shorten the F800 frame... The Travelall would be a tank on a 2+ ton frame

    Looking forward to getting that project going and on the road asap October I'll get a couple solid weeks of work in on it then really hit it hard November- April
