i have saw full kitchen slide outs with stove, sink and 12 volt cooler from under the bed out the back doors, but of course that would mean cooking outside. but with the back doors themselves and a tarp you could semi enclose it.

With our plan the under bed space will be sleeping quarters for two of the kids.

Here comes another Transit conversion: VanWilder

After some moments of white knuckled driving across Nebraska to deliver Van Wilder home it was apparent that the light load of beer and stock tires would not do for the remainder of the winter, if we wanted to stay alive.

Safely home.

So the first upgrade for us was to replace the stock rubber with some studded Hakkapeliitta LT2 studded tires sized 225/75 R16. They fit without a issue and also gave a bit more aggressive look and ground clearance. Planning on a 2" lift and larger tire for the summer and fire road exploration.

Alignment was a bit off so that added to this upgrade.
