    lots of nice work into that thing. but they could have moved the front axle fwd and the rear backward. this way you could turn all the way and flex it a bit down the road without crushing half the work done on it.

    They did do a lot of "nice" work to it, the lines are clean and it almost looks factory... in a weird Mexican way. Personally I hate the way it looks and think the person who built that wasted a lot of plastic that could have made Michael Jackson a few more noses /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The lifted Van itself is pretty neat, but all of the excess garbage on it is just... well, excess garbage.

    i dunno...loose that wrap around thing around the windshield and those flares and it would look pretty sweet..i think lifted vans are sweet..we got a guy in our club with a 4wd G20 van, 3/4 on 38" swampers..and it performs very well, just big as all f&ck

    The lifted van itself is pretty cool. Like everyone else said, I really don't like the other garbage on it... including the clear tail lenses. It looks like a lifted lowrider to me. Where's the neon undercarriage lights and spinny wheels /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'd lose all the plastic on it and wheel the pi$$ out of it.

    Then I'd get a Chevy and do the same /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
