    Great pic's, thanks.
    Yeah with that shroud that covers the transmission in the blue truck interfering with the placement of a powerchair, modifications would be necessary.

    I have a front wheel drive powerchair that measures 29.5 inches across the front. Obviously no changes could be made to any front wheel drives. And looking at my frontier x-5 mid-wheel drive, there are more questions.

    Best to just wait and see. Living in PA is not going to help.

    What do you use to lock down? I didn't see anything in the pictures.

    kudos Steve... your conversion looks solid.

    Thanks Scott, it is definitely solid. My guys take a lot of pride in building the highest quality into every truck.

    Hacknsack-

    We let the dealers install lockdowns and I believe most are EZLock.

    ForestRanger,

    Yes, those big front wheel drive chairs may only fit in a two wheel drive, but at least you are in a truck. With the added weight of steel and your chair, they still get through things very well.

    Yes, absolutely correct, still in a truck. Other than a couple Harley's, I have owned nothing else but thankfully only one year with 2 wheel drive. With my head height between 58" to 56", thinks are difficult enough as it is. If by chance that someday I could really afford a truck conversion, I may by then have a powerchair that is lower. Wistful thinking.

    Ride-away is our dealer on the East coast and they have 2 dealerships in Virginia.(Richmond and Norfolk). We are shipping a truck there on Tuesday, but I am not sure which store. Call the one closest to you and they will probably make arrangements for you to see it. Be sure to tell them I sent you, because the person you ask may not even know it is coming.
