I got this little guy with big plans for it. I use to it to haul my my fleet of kayaks and Great Dane. Its perfect for just that. Took all of the seats out and put them in my other bus that I'm currently converting also. The astro turf is great for cleaning off the bottom of the boats and allowing water and sand to drain out. Used rustoleum paint from tractor supply for nice paint job!

Its a 5.9 cummins w/ Allison. My dashboard only works when I hit potholes. not sure what wire is acting funky.

I also attached a trailer hitch for hauling additional boats and cargo.

nice!

I tried to convince my wife to let me replace her suburban with one just like it. I think it was one of my boys commenting on how they could put their ATV in it killed the project!
