Seats were a one-off actually two off design and build project with MG Metalworks now Expovans. They were inspired by the fold away wheelchair position seats on busses and then designed to work in 3 positions. The project turned out to be a challenge and in the end the market was just not really there. But based on all the questions I have been getting about them maybe the market analysis was not thorough enough At the end of the day it was a complicated and $$$ effort.

try and image search on fold away bus seats and that could get you started.
Hehe, I think most are wow'd by the Transformer seat setup and want one, but once they find out how much $$$$$ a few burly one-off's would be to replicate, the market still may not be there.

There are a few shuttle bus suppliers making seats that fold-up against the van sides. One such example:

I don't think there's a shortage of trucks or people to do the job, there's just a shortage of money Ford is willing to pay to have it done.

Eric,

Definitely a shortage of flatbed haulers(for MR and HR vans). 2 more flatbed companies just called it quits this past week, due to stricter EDL.
You need to get a flatbed and start hauling x-country!

Van sold to the right individual, showed up in a fully built JK on bead-locks with most of the paint scrapped off the sliders. I trust this will get some great use.
