The 4x4 truck complicated wheel chair selection because of the transfer case and they require the towing package.
    Any chance they shared what powerchairs will fit on the lift pan with you guys?

    He?s about 1? left of center. He?s 6?1?. He is able to see most signal lights sitting normally but needs to lean forward for high/close ones. We ordered the truck with a solid roof which gave him more head room. He is in a permobil M300.

    Not when we ordered it. We said we were getting the M300 and they said that would work. Front wheel drive chairs definitely wouldn’t work.

    The adjustable steering wheel, climate control and power mirrors are a big help. I would avoid too stripped of a truck.

    3 years ago when we started this process ATC had people with trucks that would come and show the truck to you. Now that SVM is gone their dealer network should be better call them and push a little bit!

    ATC has some used SVM trucks on there website. Can anybody tell me what chairs will work with their truck conversions? It’s a 4x4 1200. 2012 model. Guy I talked with didn’t seem to want to talk about them either.
