Very cool! I've seen one done yrs ago. Blue/silver up for sale on eBay a few yrs ago. It had some stress cracking where the tub met the CC roof.

That one is still around, seems that it's a 4wd diesel now. I'll find the pics later and post them.

The ramcharger roof top skin is being removed as well and then a ribbed suburban roof is being grafted on

I like the pictures Gyman. I only have three in at a time in my rigs or I would be on the lookout for one. I assume they don't come up for sale very often. I also have to have a 8' bed for my rides. Very cool though to hook to a camper and role.

Rear ramcharger gas tank crossmembers and body mounts were installed today as well as final measurements were taken. Frame needs to shorten 8.5" to Center the wheel in the opening and have the proper door gap between the crew cab rear door and ramcharger door jamb
