Wicked Van Project

im new to this site and been looking and the many different ways people use there vans and many different styles.....

i just purchased a 92 E250 5.8 hd trans 3.73 rear gears 8500 towing

it has been lifted already with just springs as i can see.... 16" rims with 285/75/16 tires that were shot

so this weekend i found a killer deal on 16" center line wheels and cooper tires so im running on those for know and will update or change the simulated beead lock wheels later...

we plan on making our selves pre runner front bumper and custom rear bumper with tire mount.... also a full custom roof rack with off road lights and loading lights....

also we will finish the inside but not sure at this time what all total we will do

at times i will be towing a over all 30ft trailer so thinking of installing airbags for the rear and electric brakes ... maybe even up date wheels on van and trailer to match

i already have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd quad cab that i have owned since new

we also will be working on a design and will wrap the van to promote our business...

we use the van at least 3 weekends a month for car and bike swap meets and races..

some the sand drags and asphalt drags 3 day events and hope to sleep in van

my shop is on a busy street so we will park the van for a big banner....

we build custom golf carts and side x sides (rhinos etc)

my shop is also next door to a junk yard and have picked up some later model door panels and other little stuff.... i have also installed a 24led in the rear dome light

also have pulled out the green carpet and cut and fitted new 1/2 plywood for the floor wittch we will remove at a later date to install insolation....

feel free to tell me your thoughts or ideas

we already has a gallery but here a few pics

thanks Mr Wicked Randy

Re: Wicked Van Project

my extended van tows large trailers very well.

This trailer was 41' long and 18,000 pounds fully loaded.



I could fit a 'Yota van in the back with room to spare:

Re: Wicked Van Project

pretty cool thanks for the feed back... i know now the ass end of my trailer kicjks out bad with the truck and to have that much longer from the rear end it will kick more

from the bacl of the rear tires the the back of the trailer is farther than yours on your weekend warrior
