Well,thanks to the help of some great people in this club,my lil Saturn gained ground clearance this weekend and I love it!! The over/under kit from eTrailer was spot on and I was able to flip the axle complete in a few hours!

Nice! Being where I am some of the locations I could camp may need more than stock clearance!

Hi Nofrills,

Wow, the flip came out well. The camper matches up well with the Burb.

Is that your shop with a "camper" lift in it? Talk about being slick!! There may be a camper length limit on the lift but for a little one where it works, this is really neat. Makes frame painting have a totally new meaning!

Thanks for sharing

John

John, that is the shop where I work. I'm fortunate enough to have a full run of it,so THAT makes "after hours" projects a little more feasible!�� Hands down one of the brst and most inexpensive modifications I've made on it yet. I added a sway bar along with with the Curt weight distribution setup and the drives like a dream.! Thanks for the inside scoop on everything...it made the job a breeze.

Nice job. So let's see, it took you a few hours to do a single axle so I should be able to do my tandem axles in a few days.

I assume the increased height doesn't affect getting in and out of the camper that bad?

Just take your time...find a competent helper and mark everything/take pictures! The height was significant,but not so much that it makes getting in/out a problem. A step from 5 below can always solve any "short"problems..lol. That's 12" from bottom step to the ground btw.

Finding a competent helper would be the hardest part for me.

Your welcome.

Go to see and hear of your great relationship with your employer. This is something real good small shops can do. It helps the moral and all involved as long as everyone treats things like they want their own to be. When you get into a big company, these small shop advantages evaporate.

What year is your 2500 YukonXL? We had a 2003 K2500 with the 6.0L and it even had the rear wheel steering. Quadrasteer. It was really a nice feature for towing and just getting around in general. I miss that truck. Our current camper outgrew it.

Thanks

John

Yes,I work for a family business...it's a pretty great environment! My Yukon is an 01with a 6.0. It was actually part of a small fleet that we maintained for 12 years of it's life. They gave it to us after it hit 200k and I bought it off my boss for $600. I only use it for the camper and snow...change the oil and every other fluids waaay more than needed,but as long as I keep on being meticulous with it,I should get another 100k with it! It REALLY works out great with the 3rd row out and 6' of storage for all my camping needs and more.That's 2 Honda generators,Coleman grill,120 qt cooler,2 wagons,complete tool box,backup battery box,chairs,2-6' folding tables and a 10'x10' ez-up+ more with room! Those Hondas btw fit in a folding wagon on a small riser platform I build with an umbrella mount in the center...lol I get a lil creative at times😉
