Slick. The front box is where I mounted my battery tray. Great empty space under the van.

One of these days I swear I'll post my now 4 year old build.

I bought a 10" tank from PPL. Even though it's made for a van, the valves were a bit of a paint to make work with the access door. Given what else I've read here, I'd say buy it all from SMB.

Re: Home Build Option 80/20

I've been eyeing it as well, I believe Ujoint's roof ract is made of it.

Re: 27 series 6V agm's ! perfect for traverse vans

I just added a leaf to our EB build, as it was sitting more on the factory overloads than I wanted. Ended up using a SuperLift 2570 A-A-L that got me over 3 inches in the rear and improved the ride...

Re: Road Block

As suggested, drill them out. Don't use too much pressure on the drill, because once you are through you may dent the outside of your van. Don't ask how I know.
