    Its not that bad 10 years ago when i bought my conversion van i paid $51,000 for it with a lowered floor and a tri-fold ramp, i paid 34,000 4 the truck and now24,00 for the conversion, and i get 2 drive what i want now so i dont think its that bad. Like i also said a gmc is cheaper the dodge needed a couple of modifications

    Yup.

    Subaru is basically unadapted aside from hand controls. Nothing fancy. The Jeep is lifted on 35" tires, wheelchair lift in the rear. A few photos here: http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showthread.php?t=129252

    I use a transfer board, but other than that I'm independent. The Outback's seat is a few inches higher than my chair but it's really not a big deal.

    C6 here as well, functional @ C7.
