Got my van Sunday and tore into it yesterday. Removed the headliner and took a few of the airbags if anyone is curious.

I didn鈥檛 get a pic of it and already took seat out but airbag goes past the seats basically the length of the floor. Going to have to still work around them for my shower/toilet.









How'd you remove the airbags, did removing it throw out any error codes? Curious to see how you will be working around those airbags. I want to put some sort of shower cabinet back there too but all that headliner taking up so much space.

I'm not taking the airbags out, just the headliner. I am not sure yet if I am putting it back in after I install fans and insulation or not. I have a few ideas Im kicking around. Ill probably start a build thread so I am not hijacking this one, just thought I'd keep these pics together

Thanks for posting, should have mine in about a week.

Looks like the headliner extends further past the back of the seats than I had seen before, I鈥檓 planning on putting my bathroom there but looks like I鈥檓 still going to be dealing with the airbags.

Also does the slider have the full passenger trim on it?
I went with the cargo for this exact reason. I would have just removed the seats, and I did not want that window on the drivers side.

Do you have a good idea of how one could work around the airbags? I have the exact same setup coming in a month. The head liner in the crew area looks to take up a bunch of space - my thinking was to have cabinets above that line up with the rear. Wondering what kind of surround / covering / etc. over the airbags would be safe and effective.

I鈥檓 not sure this is the appropriate place for this question but I鈥檓 wondering about the removal of the seat tracks in the second row. Do they simply unbolt from the top, and then can they easily be bolted back in? That might be handy for the outermost track since I鈥檒l be using a 2 person seat most of the time.

You would think for a crew van that could potentially be 3-5 grown men they could give you a little more rear leg room. If the tracks could mount the seat in one of two positions it would be a no brainer to get the crew. The biggest con of my passenger van is that the second row is too far forward and the third row is too far back.

i love the one random piece of grey plastic trim on the interior wall portside aft. Ford Engineer -oh yeah we could totally trim this out, Bean counters, F' off..., but we already ordered .....
sweet Van!
I noticed that too. I wonder why they didn't complete the trim around the window instead??? Could you order that trim piece?

Can you order the two seat second row (found on passenger vans)? It would make access to a rear bunk easier.

Is this a regular or long wheel base? On a regular length van what is the distance from where the passenger seat floor ends to the rear doors?

We are thinking of getting a crew van (to avoid any insurance issues with passengers). There have never been any at the local dealers to actually go and look at.
