unibody-crew-cab

This orange crew cab looks so sleek, it’s crazy. I couldn’t figure out why it looked so different but then I realized they completely re-did the body. It looks like a unibody designed truck. No lines, no gaps, just all body. AND, they left off the door handles. Even the bumper looks like part of the body. Of course, they also sport after market wheels, new rear brake lights, and painted front grill. Click through to see several more pics of this beauty.

You know you have to use every inch of space for storage when you own a Vanagon. This guy has a very, very long rowing boat on the top of his van.

This hack comes courtesy of Rocky Mountain Westy who created aluminum window replacements for a client. These are not inserts that go behind the glass. These inserts replace the stock windows and fit perfectly into the factory seal. They are unfinished so you can paint to match your van. Very cool! Head on over to Rocky Mountain Westy to purchase these. They sell for $98.95 each.



This 1989 Syncro caught my eye. The rear bike storage looks to be custom. Instead of the bike racks you normally see on the rear hatch, this bike seems to be resting on a bar that comes out of a rear hitch as well as a swing arm on the back. Anyone know what this is?

Vanagon owners find all kinds of ways to create storage areas on the Vanagon. As you can see, this owner mounted a toolbox on the front bumper. This provides lots of room for tools that are out of the way until you need it. This will put some weight up front, but the Vanagon should be able to handle it.
