Nice! Where did you pick up those totes under the bed? (green/gray?)

They come in black and OD green. They are made by plano. Very reasonably priced and available at homevdepot.

The van is looking great! Nice work!

Did you glue down the coin flooring or is it floating?

Nice build. I'm planning a similar, minimalist build but my van is in the shop so I can't take measurements right now. I'm hoping you can tell me the width of the two, side bed boxes plus how wide the space is between them when installed.

Great van! It looks like mine. But then again, so does every white Ford van

I'm also running the 4" Weldtec kit, but no custom rear spring pack. It's on the list. I'm gonna tackle it as soon as my wallet agrees. What were the criteria that your shared with Jeremy and WTD about building those springs for you (eg. intended use, ride height, vehicle/trailer weights, etc.)?

Thanks. Told him to build it for a complete passenger van. Those 3 benches probably weigh close to what I put back in it. Probably weighs a little more but but close enough. Still need to ditch the stock spare.

Got it. As far as appearances go, how does it sit now? Is the van level, or a bit higher in the back like when it was stock? Are the springs built with the expectation that they'll settle-in a bit?

Hard to tell from pics, sometimes. Thanks!
