I see you are converting that van in a way that other shops or people are afraid to touch.

Seriously, not good no matter what. At least find some concrete to support the vehicle on and don't put it up so high when you are making your mods. Read up on something called a Moment Arm and how it effects off center loads.

Oh sweet Jesus, i hope your amazing painting skills are better than your sentence structure skills. I have a feeling that between the pipe bender that I'm going to assume you got from harbor freight and the barrel jack stands you fukc up a incredible amount of stuff. But I'm sure all of your hillrod buddies are jealous of that sweet cobbled together bogger you have and all the other half finished piles of shit laying around your yard. Of coarse now that I think about it you probably will fit into this site pretty well.

The water in the barrels was frozen so it's all good.
