Spotted at Stevens Pass WA

Not an SMB but a lifted van with aluminess and rack on top. WA plates and looks to be a fireman. This van has a serious lift on it! Much bigger than my SMB. This van is a monster and I thought my SMB was big.




Give an idea on size. Far right in the pic is a regular subaru.

Nice looking van, but after a point, additional lift is not just pointless but a hindrance to handling and safety.

Most of the time, that is what it takes to get 37's under one.

I am guessing those tires are bigger than 37" since mine were 35" and not even close to the size of this van. The top of my SMB roof was about midway on the other van windows. Should have taken a pic.

Re: Spotted at Stevens Pass WA

Also I don't think that Nerf step is helping much!

Funny story since no one saw this. I had my hoop steps off the van several weeks ago because they had peeled and had loosened up. I was spraying Urethane (Rock-It Liner) on my Pick up Camper shell and rack so I prepped and sprayed my hoops too. While they were off I probably drove the van 4 times. Every time I exited the van I put my foot on the non-existent hoop step and basically fell out. One time almost to the point of hitting the ground on all fours. Man you get used to those things.

Going from rails to hoops (riding in other people's vans) is the same thing. I've nearly broken my neck a few times.
