Upgrading the front shaft to 1410 joints took some mods to the cross member 20190727_093448.jpeg 20190727_093520.jpeg

Having a 6 inch lift made this model necessary

Looks near new. The sacrificial metal looks intact.

New to this forum

I also did a w250 with a Hallmark popup camper, great combo. I very curious how your getting such great 

mileage. After my injector was rebuilt the best I've been able to get is 12 & that sucks

Hello Bill

Dont think I mentioned my mileage and have not checked it since adding the camper, was getting high teens and low 20s before, but you bring up a good question. How much should I expect to loose with the camper. I am sure this must have been asked before.

Got tired of all the leaves and stuff blowing in through the vents and added a screen under the grill 20190903_185932.jpeg

BBilt,

My 93 W250 diesel extended cab long bed with bed cap on routinely gets 19.5 to 20 mpg on the freeway if I keep it around 70 mph or so.

With camper on I lose about 2 mpg at speed.

At slower speeds (55 is about optimal) mileage with bed cap is close to 21 to 22 mpg and with camper on around 19.5.

BTW: I have an OEM Getrag 5-speed.

I have a good friend who has a 93 W250 regular cab diesel long bed and his mileage consistently runs about 1 mpg better than mine. I do not know why. He has an 80's FWC Keystone and the same model bed cap. He does not have an aftermarket exhaust. He does have an aftermarket New Ventures 5-speed and I think the final gearing may be slightly better for mileage than the getrag. Another difference is that his truck sits a bit higher and "square" to the pavement whereas mine has a slight forward rake to it (front is maybe an inch or 2 lower than "square" to the pavement).
