Installed some more L track throughout the van, I will be using this for our removable bed platform which was inspired by livelikepete (Live Like Pete | Travel Light, Go Farther, Do More). I used some of the existing factory holes and drilled some of my own. I used 1/4-20 Plus Nuts with the Astro Tool, very simple.

After installing the L Track, I used the Ikea Skorva Beams for the main support for the bed. I wanted to increase the height of my garage space so I bought L Brackets from Home Depot and connected them to my L track fittings.

I wanted to do a 3 panel design however I ran out of L track fittings, which I now have on order. We are doing our first overnight in the van tomorrow so I am just going to throw some plywood on top for now for our mattress.

The plywood, skorva beam, and L bracket are secured by a threaded knob that I purchased from Lee Valley. I drilled a hole through all three layers and then installed a 1/4-20 Plus Nut in the L bracket, I was lucky that the threaded knobs already came in 1/4-20.

Haven't posted in a while but there has been quite a bit of progress over the last week or so.

Installed the Van Compass Topo Lift with HD Red Coils, Intercooler Skid Plate, Falcon Rear Shocks, and Aluminess Tire Carrier. Switched out our stock tires to some 265 K02's.

We also had our 4 AM Auto Windows installed and our Maxx Fan!


Super happy with the windows, they look very clean!

Really like the versatility of that track Cyrull - being able to move, add, change, or alter throughout your build (or even later) makes so much sense. I would love to have that option. Build coming along nicely.

It's been a great feature for sure, I'm not limited to any one layout and have changed it around multiple times depending on what we are doing. Was helping someone move the other day so I pulled my two seats out. It's probably the single most expensive feature of the van but it's been well worth it so far in the 2 months I've had the floor system.

Ordered some mesh bunk bags for internal storage, really happy with these!

They are quick detach either by Velcro or a locking tab, I like the ability to grab these bags on the fly whether I'm packing for a camping trip in the house or grabbing some items for the beach.

I don't know why the photo is showing upside down, sorry.
