Post a pic of you ride !!
I am on the market for a new pickup or van
which one do you have ?
Lets see your baby
2009 Chevrolet 2500 Van.
I had a pickup truck. It sucks carrying 4-6 drums of refrigerant plus everything else. If you're doing residential a/c and only need 22 and 410 and don't carry all the extra crap a pickup might be ok.
Quick question Mike.....what kind of shelving is in pic 2? Are they pull out drawers?
I'm waiting for a van with internal tool/parts storage boxes accessed from a door from the exterior instead of having to climb inside then crawl on hands and knees in the van.
The new trucks have a bed that is so tall it's hard to mount a sidebox and be able to reach what's in them without a step ladder. Manufactures don't know what a "work truck" is anymore- they focus on "style" and "looks" instead.
This is why I'm keeping my truck as long as possible.
Soon, when I decide it is time to semi-retire and stop installing complete systems, I'll go probably with a Ford transit and downsize.
I'll be adding two more large boxes this year- need more room.
The smaller boxes behind the big boxes contain capacitors, start kits, media filters, sprays etc.
Can't add too much more weight- the tommy lift is 300#'s on top of everything else.
Chevy makes one but they are up high.

Thanks. I will get it organized tomorrow and get some interior pictures. Tons of room and pretty easy to keep organized. I'm not sure if it has ever been as buttoned down as Mikes, but it stays pretty clean.

I should have put a disclaimer. The picture I took was from when the van was new, and I didn't have all my stuff in it. When I get out to where my van is I will take a picture of what it looks like now and post it.

This is what it looks like today.
