looking for a box for my Iveco

Hello all,

I am looking for a box for my Iveco having given up on the caravan idea, I am looking on e bay but if any one has any ideas for me or knows of one or commercial breakers in the south please let me know, my chassis is 12'6" long plus I want to go over the cab. I have thought about building my own, has anyone done this or now of any links for advice . I think I want to go for grp ply for strength but am a little worried about the weight.

all advice welcome!

Graeme

Hi, I ended up going for a styrofoam sandwich shell - much lighter than metal framed ply and very rigid, as well as having superb insulation properties:

IVECO 4x4 - New rims

Hello I am new in this forum I live in Portugal and I just broth a IVECO Daily 4x4 the civil cab version, it has split rims and mounts 7.50R16 tyres. I want to change to normal rims and mount 9.00R16 tyres. Any body knows if there are normal rims that can fit the Daily? Do i have to modify any thing to fit the 9.00R16 tyres.
One other thing, anybody has scanned a copy of the user manual that can send me?

Thank you,

rear box for iveco

Hi, We travelled with a German couple who built their own back onto their Iveco. You can view the build pictures on his site aroundtravell - Home
He is currently back in Germany and building a body for a G wagon for a Norwegian guy. Feel free to email him- his English is good!
Good luck with your plans.
Dave
PS He has 900 r 16's on his Iveco.

Very nice job!!! I will ask him but his IVECO is a different model, maybe is that the military model? If so it has 9.00R16 tyres as standard.
Thank you Dave.

You can see my IVECO here:

Hi y'all,

Just finishing a Zanzibar-Namibia trip with two of our Iveco 4x4 Dailys - they have done really well (particularly considering how grossly overloaded they both are!). One is full of film kit, the other is full of hot air balloon and gear!

Anyway, just wanted to post that they are great vehicles!

If you want to sell your 7.50 R16 rims, then I'm interested - although how we get them 'cheaply' from Portugal to Belgium remains difficult! Let me know!

Our user manuals are either in Dutch or French - so perhaps not so useful to you?

Safe travels all, Sam.

I think that will be very expensive to send the rims to Belgium as they are very heavy. Any way till now have not being able to find other rims that can fit the iveco , if i found them i will inform you.
The french manual will be nice, do you have a pdf version?

Thank you,

Hi Kevin,

did you get to meet up?!

I'm interested in the standard rims (although the ones I bought from you are great!).

I don't have the user manuals in 'soft' - only in paper format I'm afraid.

Just to say, also, that I have found brand new snorkels in Tripoli for Eur80 if anyone wants one!

Safe travels, Sam.

Iveco snorkels

Hi, yes, they are for the Ivecos.

They are sold by IVECO Libya.

I don't know about sending them - they're big (when they're not attached to a truck!).

I am back in Libya in October, and can get one to London relatively easily if you like.

You will need some little bits and pieces (nothing bigger than a bolt or credit card piece of flat metal) for mounting (or you can order these little bits from Iveco in the UK).

Safe travels, Sam.

hi Mark hi all,
I bought my snorkel Iveco directly from iveco in Torino Italy. Don't see why you shouldn't get one if providing correct item #. If you like I can try find out which was mine and post it. The only thing is that I am not particularly happy with it. The way it is mounted allows the air contained in between the body layers (external and internal) of the body panel to flow through. Will never get to the water that high but plenty of dust raised by the front wheel gets sucked up. Will have to fix by sealing in a connecting lenght of plastic tube (I was thinking with foam...)

Has any of you guys tried to increase the power at low RPM, that is the real pain of this engine, even more so with 255/100 tyres? I was thinking of adding an intercooler, but cannot find any info on how to do and/or commercially available kits. All suggestions welcome.

Many thanks to all repliers

Ciao

Adriano
