          Really i have a truck from goshichi and it only take 45 seconds to go up and down, thats with the truck turned off, if its running it takes 35, looks like it would take longer to transfer into that seat, plus its easier for a quad to just back in

            well in that time..i open the door,push the button to send the seat down. raise the camper shell and hook up the chair..transfer..then take everything up lol.

            im in pretty good shape so the transfer is no problem. i haul horses everywhere and sometimes drive for 4-10 hours. that would kill me from my chair..plus it looks stock from the inside and other people can drive if i get tired

                Krew99,

                He was talking about HIS conversion takes 2 1/2 minutes. The GoShichi is 30-35 seconds. We could actually make it faster, but chose not to for safety reasons.

                Wheelhorseman,

                As for not wanting to drive from your chair, we sold a passenger side conversion to a guy that preferred to drive from factory seat. He gets in and slides over on bench seat. It is a much better transfer being inside the truck especially in the snow/rain.

                  PS. The big red truck sold to guy in Alabama. His daughter actually bought it for his 68th birthday.

                  Nice truck......GREAT DAUGHTER!

                      Sierras and Silverados. extended or crew cabs come off assembly line with precision cut parts and tooling which allows us to produce them more efficiently. These vehicles have been crash tested and easily approved for government funding. This requires a huge investment and commitment. We will expand our product offering in the future, but nothing else is in production now.

                      We do have a custom department for those that really want something different. Cost can be more than double.

                            I agree, put it in a Ford and I will be first in line to buy.

                              Duramax Sierra would be awesome in my book. Then again, I'd be fine with a Sierra or an F150.

                                The Ford's fuel cell is a bad place. It is right where the modification is. In a Chevy/GM it is in the rear of the truck out of the way. I have already checked with Steve on this and took measurements myself. He is working on the Avalanche though.
                                Life's perceived journey in this PMR is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "holy **** what a VR ride!"
