That's a beautiful rig with a rather misguided view of security from the previous owner. I hope perspective thieves don't have one of those super rare phillips screwdrivers!

I agree, nice rig. I focused right away on the light bar on the roof, and wondered what the bracket looked like, but when I enlarged the photo I recognized that the light was mounted to a gutter mount roof rack. I want to move mine to the roof and had considered doing it the same way, but after mocking it up, I felt it placed the light too high on the roof, at least using the mounts I already had. My intention is to mount it only slightly above the roof to reduce wind noise and avoid more low hanging branches. I plan to fabricate some brackets as soon as time allows but still hope someone has found an off the shelf solution instead. Anyone?

Arctic - I know some people have used the f150 brackets for a light bar but I don't know the specifics. Hope that helps in some way.

And ya this one has been for sale for a while now.

Eighty-thousand dollar van and a $175 surfboard. I guess everyone has their priorities.

I can attest that the weight savings from replacing the plastic instrument bezel with a carbon fiber one like the one on this van is good for 0.2 seconds in the quarter mile.

Not any options out there for a van. I researched it pretty hard. I tried a Carr rain gutter mount but didn't really like it. C-Profile Light Bar

I tried retro-fitting some jeep brackets from Enspired Engineering but wasn't happy with that either. I gave up and went with Baja Designs pods instead. Your more than welcome to the Carr light bar if you want to try it. Plus shipping of course. If I had stayed in that direction I think I would have just retro-fitted a pair of Yakima towers.

Nice, 0 mpg’s....that’s close. Maybe I missed it it in the description, but doesn’t look like a conventional SMB interior build out, van specialties perhaps? Being an OR rig.

The add also says it's 2wd. The Edge Juice PCM controller would scare me. That thing is known to eat transmissions. Otherwise, the van is decked out. ARB lockers front and rear. That's pretty sweet. But $80k?
