Vanagon owners are famous for wanting more gauges and switches in the cockpit of their Vanagon. We have covered several different ways to add gauges to the Vanagon dashboard, but if you’re looking for something over the top this is it. Whoever created this cockpit is leaving nothing behind. He is obviously a fan of gauges and switches, not to mention CB radios and police scanners. He also installed a wood steering wheel to boot!



I love Vanagons who have the customized grill “eyelid.” I don’t know what the official name of it is, but I call it the eyelid. Usually, people paint them the same color as the van. This guy decided to go the stainless route and it looks great. I believe these eyelids were popular in Europe, but never made it to the US. I’ve tried to buy one in the past, but I haven’t been able to locate a source.

UPDATE: This piece is apparently called an “eyebrow.”



Don’t you just love the side window hack? We have seen this hack before, but this is the largest window I have seen so far. Click through to see this syncro in action.


Every once in awhile we run across a serious expedition vehicle. This Syncro definitely falls into that category. She isn’t polished and clean, but just look at her. She’s ready for a serious expedition. I think she even has a toilet. Click through for more pics.

Vanagons are known as good camping vehicles for those who want something small. But what about a RV? There are Vanagon RV’s floating around out there, but here is one with a complete interior and exterior view. This RV is small, but does provide a more complete experience over the standard Vanagon. Check it out!



Check out this custom console for the Vanagon cockpit. It is full of gauges, switches, and lights, and is perfect for the Vanagon enthusiast. Although the picture is cut off, it looks like the console contains a cup holder at the bottom. One of the downsides of this kind of console is it limits the ability to mount the Vanagon from the side door, but it sure looks cool.

We’ve seen several stretch Vanagons before, but what about a stretch truck? This stretch Doka is a double cab with a long bed and dual axels. Click through to see this thing on the race track.




Many Vanagon owners install fog lights or running lights on their vans. They provide extra light while driving as the stock Vanagon lights are rather wimpy. They also provide a different character to the Vanagon depending on where you mount them. There are many light kits available with several placements to choose from. You can get round or rectangle lights to light up the road in front of you, and the following are only a few examples.


This Syncro looks brand new! Everything on her looks new. There is so much to love about this van it’s hard to know where to begin. Check out those tires and the gorgeous paint job. What about the entire front of the van? She’s ready for a serious expedition.
