yup, i’m startin’ the build thread on the knarr. for right now the mods won’t be crazy as i don’t want to tie it up for more than a day at any time. some of the stuff i’ve got in mind. in no particular order
1)swap in the seats out of the 4xtra
2)install a console
3)build a roof rack [already designed]
4)pass thru the back window [no front glass in topper]
5)vent extensions [diffs]
6)fab spare tire rack
8)install locker [have choice of 2]
9)better lighting inside n out
10)design n fab 2 removable racks for interior [1 each for wheelin’/campin’ and work tools]October 10, 2018 at 10:17 am #207292
Mark I’m glad the Knarr has a build thread, plans look pretty stout!
For item #4 I can give you the rear slider window. It’s part of my freebie pile of 89-95 pickup parts. If I make it to BS meet I’ll bring them with me.October 10, 2018 at 11:39 am #207293Slick_YotaKeymaster
good plans!October 11, 2018 at 7:15 pm #207305
well i’ve sourced a main frame for the roof rack. got a stack of 4’x8′ security fence at work. talked to my boss about it, asked what he wanted for a section. his response “is it for you?” yup, “buy me a coffee” sold!
gotta love workin’ in in small shop!!!October 28, 2018 at 10:56 am #207379Slick_YotaKeymaster

Any work lately on the knarr?December 16, 2018 at 12:02 pm #207501
got nothin’ tom, due to work n the f.i.l. startin’ his dirt nap. i’ll have 5 days off over the xmas break so hopin’/plannin’ to get some $h!t done. it’s actually been nice to just be able to drive it without really worrying about it.
well i guess there is 1 small update, picked up a pair of flush mount led back up lights and got the cut outs in the rear bumper laid out. will try to remember to post up pics when i do it.December 19, 2018 at 1:32 pm #207506
Glad you haven’t needed any repairs since the safety.
I hear you on just driving something, that wss the relief I got with the Taco 5.5 years ago. Just put gas in and go. It had been a while.May 5, 2019 at 8:49 pm #208148
i’m pleased, like very pleased. for one, this was the first time i’ve had a ‘yota at the m+g since the first sontt m+g , what, 10 years ago.
the knarr held it’s own on the super slab without missing a beat. held 11o-115 no issue. hamilton mountain on the 403 was crested at a buck30. started climbing at buck20 and didn’t downshift out of o/d. that’s a win in my book!!!!!!May 5, 2019 at 9:31 pm #208149Toy-YotaParticipant
Not a bad little rig you got there, next time you’ll have the 60!
