Re: New guy's wheelchair van

The shifter was $189 for a single + installation and you can mount it pretty much anywhere you want. The drop floor is an extensive modification but well worth it.

Re: New guy's wheelchair van

Thanks for the pics of the drop floor conversion. That looks like quite an involved job. I've been wondering how it was done for a couple of years now. Those photos just put that mystery to rest.

It is the 2nd black vehicle I have had. After the first one I said never again but after not having one I missed it and had to get another one. I got lots of compliments before I got the 4x4 added but now it's over the top. It seems like I get complimented daily now. You are right about keeping it clean though. Well worth it!

I have always liked the look too. I just put my winter tires on them last week and they will stay mounter on the factory wheels. I am getting new wheels and tires in the spring. Now I just have to find a wheel and tire packaage that will fit my van's sliding side door with 17" or 18" wheels and 33" tires.

I have had lots of people asking me how it was done and as everyone knows "A picture is worth a thousand words".
