I am thinking about making one of my lwb 4x4 palomino's into a Camper 7500 with dana 60's front and rear with the factory overload package. I figure if I have all of the stuff, I may as well. I am also looking for a vintage alaskan camper to also put on it....I think it will be neat...
btw, they only made the PALOMINO package trucks in 1/2 ton configuration, so this will be a one of none... :D
picture of truck in question....also going to be putting on a nicer rust free bed on it too....

I like that idea.
Alaskan Camper. Very Cool.
Saw a cute clean one fron the 70s for a short bed 1/2 ton
a few mo's back and almost pulled the trigger.
Cheap like $400 Oh Well

I've seen those campers before, didnt know the were called alaskan campers is it because the rounded roof lets snow slide off? or is alaskan a brand?
