    How did you get around the patent with Mobility SVM?
    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!"

If your not concerned with loosing the rear passenger area or having the passengers have to have their feet 10" higher than normal it can be done.
      It would require a custom setup but would end up in the same price range.
      You might want to do some measuring first. Wranglers aren't as wide as full-size trucks. Plus, what you're proposing affects a lot underneath the body, including major structural modification to the frame.

        I agree with BraswellF5- what you can see of the conversion looks like the Mobility SVM conversion.

          Doors coming out horizontally is about the only similarity. Each vehicle whether van or truck has to have a floor pan or lowered floor.
          Hydraulics instead of linear actuators, horizontal assembly and vertical assembly not even close other than up/dowm & in/out.

          Wrangler would be an undertaking to say the least and yes part of the frame would be trimmed but 8x heavier steel in boxing prevents any structure failure. Since width is not enough to have the standard horizontal opening for chair and platform to come out a 2 stage would be needed. I have a guy cutting one up that has been wrecked at the moment to check the vision we have for the Jeeps. Actually 6 vehicles getting chopped but thats R&D

            Sounds good, I am interested in a Tahoe setup. Keep the website updated.

              Look around Wednesday for a video and more content. I hired a guy to do it and it has been over a month on what takes me two hours. Thought I was going to save time.

                Carpet is not set in the holders on the side of the floor pan, electronics are exposed at the pump area, and safety covers are not in for demo purposes on the design

                    1000 pounds on vertical lift cycled hundreds of times. Down pressure jacks entire side up without hesitation. Horizontal has been cycled roughly 1000 times (lost count at one point) and that was with a 500lb load.

                          I've been looking at Wrangler 4 door with the idea of transferring to the drivers seat. With the elevating seat on my Permobil M400 I can get to within 2 inches of the drivers seat height if the Jeep is not lifted. If I could get my chair in there instead, with enough headroom that would be amazing. Don't plan on any serious wheeling so normal Jeep ground clearance wouldn't be necessary. My chair is about 26.5" wide. Wouldn't mind if the back seat behind the driver had to go.

                          If this concept is not feasible would there be a reasonably affordable way to make the suspension height adjustable so the Wrangler could be lowered for transferring and maybe a 2" lift to allow a little larger tire? At maximum height my seat is at 32". Preferable Wrangler seat height when suspension is lowered for transferring would be 31" off the ground. If I went this route I would carry the chair on a hitch platform. Not optimal for sure or independent but better than not having one. Second vehicle anyway.

                          Another idea. My van has kneeling which is basically a motor pulling the van body corner down, compressing the spring on that corner. Would there be a way to pull the Wrangler body down on all 4 corners by 5 inches to allow an easier transfer? Quadratec has an adjustable height suspension kit but it is extremely expensive and goes up more than down.

                          Great to see someone trying to creatively fill needs. So tired of hearing "no that won't work."
