You would want to just look that factory part number up and see which trucks it fits then order from Ready lift etc accordingly......having said just order ones for the latest Model H2 Hummer. Or call Boulder Offroad and order from them, they will send you the right ones.

Some updates with maybe better pictures forthcoming. Depends in when I can get a minute to take more vanity shots.

Added Weldtecs rear leaf pac as well as new front torsion bars and MaxxCam keys to try and get some more lift to the front to match the rear leafs. Plus the torsion bars were just feeling a little soft and tired. Gained about 1” in the front and 2.5” in the rear. As it sits the rear is about 1.5” higher. To me it looks good.

Also Raptor lined the portion below the crease in the body as well as over the fenders on the little flared portion. You’ll see a shot of it here along with the modified Aluminess nerf bars. I ran the bars in standard form but just didn’t like how low they hung. I took a trip in September with some technical challenges, rocks, etc and I hit them a couple times which sealed the deal. Needed to do something different. Took them to a local fab shop that welded up some brackets to my frame as well as brackets to the Aluminess steps then bolted the steps to the brackets. Steps are now on a more level plane, tucked further in, and attached to the frame.

I also just added some Velvac knock off tow mirrors from A1 Auto. Quality seems pretty good. Totally functionality of the power adjustment along with integrated turn signals. Passenger side top mirror vibrates a little but isn’t brutal. Way more visibility which I’m happy with. I’ll take a shot of them from the front and I’m happy to hear from folks if they just look like silly dumbo ears.

Thanks all. Yea really happy with the way the nerf bars turned out. They look much better and will hold up to kids climbing in and out much better as well as hopefully provide a little protection on the trail. I'm sure they can't really be considered sliders per se for a big heavy van but its certainly better than just being fixed to the body.

Which mirrors did you get? Are they the TRQ MRA04497? Do you think the savings over the Velvac was worth it?



They look great! Do you have a picture from the front?

Yep I got the TRQ models that are power heated and have the turn signal in them. They work as they should so far, no complaints. They do vibrate a little at speed but it isn’t too bad. I’ll report back if they fail in any way.

I’m out of town this week but will grab a couple photos and post when I get back.

Thanks, looking forward to the pics. Have you tried them towing? Did those connect to the existing stock wiring? I talked to Velvac about their mirrors and they said it's not compatible with existing wiring unless the van had the 8D8 option from the factory.
