My camper spat a wheel bearing cover, twice, on the Gawler Ranges trip so I used what we had on hand to keep the sand and the grease separated.

Just found this thread , awesome job guys . Mods look great . I've done some of my own , i was given some shelves for the back of the cruiser & i modded them to suit my needs. Had to cut the bottom shelf to fit the cut down sub box . Then built a draw for the bottom which is angled to suit the wheel arch . Also made a winch cradle for the winch to suit a non winch alloy bar .Also turned an old steel gate into a roof rack to carry my spare wheels when we get away 4byin . I'll get some pic's soon & put them up on here as soon as i work out how :eek::D:D
Next on the list is a fridge slide .

Cheers Artie :D
