Well guys I figure it is time for me to get going on this project. And what better way than to have the peer pressure (from all of you) to actually to it in a timely fashion. First of all you should know two important things: 1) I love cold craft beers, 2) I love the outdoors and run a non-profit dedicated to every person outdoors.
This project is another method that we can use to help people get their fire stoked to get out into the wilds of this great country. I am now the proud owner of a 2006 EB 6.0L cargo van...and I am STOKED! We don't have a lot of cash so the SMB was way, way out of our range. And to be honest at this stage we would prefer the cargo space and the availability to sleep in it should we need.
The plans are to add a bench seat and two windows, eventually add a penthouse and burly roof rack and bumpers, move the bulkhead door from behind the drivers seat to 18" behind the soon to be installed bench seat. This way I can keep the gear (bikes, climbing gear, beds, etc...) blocked from view but also contained should we get wrecked. Also I am sourcing parts to build a homegrown 4wd and lift. Looking through all of your awesome build has me reeling with ideas...you can add a basement to these things?!?!?...and also looking for a side job to help fund them!
I have tons of questions and will do my best search before asking, and during the build I will not only tell you what I am trying to do but also how it actually turns out
As the title stated this will be a SLOW build, primarily as I mentioned due to my beer budget. Thanks in advance for not only sharing your great projects but inspiring me to create my own!
Cheers to all of you
