Forgive the non-Jeep related post, but some of you Jeep guys in the Denver area will be interested in this... A few of you know I’m building a Mercedes Sprinter-based adventure van (@overland.van ) because #VanLife and shit. I wanted to set off the interior with what I call #SafetyThirdOrange accents. I brought the seat brackets that hold the rear bench seat over to @milehighpowdercoating and they CRUSHED IT! Nailed the color, and the finish is GORGEOUS. If you need stuff powder coated and you’re in the Denver area, give them a try. They do tons of powder colors, from plain old matte black to prismatic colors with metallic flakes and everything in between. Super happy with how this turned out!

A little taste of comfort. Step away from the norm, do it in a Benchmark van. #adventurevehicle

When building a van, certain little things

Repost from @pete_greep ・・・ When building a van, certain little things never even cross your mind…things you never even think of until you actually go out and use it. Things like a "porch light"! This is one of our favorite #vanlifehacks that we came up with for our Sprinter build. It's so simple and cheap thanks to LED and solar technology. No drilling, batteries or wires. Just stick it on the side of the van. It's also motion activated making it a nice security feature at night. 🚐 Check out the full post on my blog.

WOW! @milehighpowdercoating freaking CRUSHED IT on this job! If you need powder coat work done and your near the Denver area, they are the place to go! Friendly, professional staff that does high quality work! Since I won’t have interior panels in the van for a while, I thought it would be cool to match the seat brackets to the @adventure_wagon MOAB elevator bed powder coat, and expedition orange (aka safety orange) looks great with the Stone Grey paint, so i had always planned on doing some orange accents. More to come in that regard. If you’ve seen my Jeep (@rubicongoldberg ), you probably figured out that I like bright colors 😎 Now, to get these in the mail to the crew at @whiteriveroverland

For the last few months, I’d been feeling pretty bummed about the van build. Building a Jeep is one thing, but building a van is an entirely different beast. So much more to learn, the scope is broader, and the work is much different. Much different considerations. With the rise of #VanLife and the increased demand for converted vans, even with more outfitters popping up, working timeframes from Denver-area upfitters were pushing toward into December and beyond for the work I didn’t feel comfortable doing myself, and constantly heading to the airport with my line of work, I needed an upfitter somewhat close to home. I’d been starting to feel like I was never going to get the van where it needed to be by ski season, which is half of the reason I bought the van. Enter the team at @whiteriveroverland in Aspen. Fresh off their WRO build, they told me they could knock out what I was looking for pretty quickly, and they weren’t too far from home. I brought the van to them on Wednesday and they introduced me to each team member personally, and went over the scope with me in great detail (and let me drive their WRO build to check out a few things). By the end of the day, we had a finalized scope. Work started Thursday, and by Saturday they had made some serious progress! Wow! Looking forward to this with excitement, like a kid on Christmas

Due to the ice outside our headquarters today, the only way to pull the dumpster away from the building was to use the @warnindustries #winch on the @aluminess bumper to pull it back with the help of the @quigley4x4. That’s how you #VanDOit 👊🏻🚐

Added a @rockymounts BackStage to the van. Just need to figure out how to clear the passenger side rear door with the handlebar... hitch extension, perhaps, though I was hoping to not have to use one because they always wobble...

Not a sexy wilderness shot, but it's nice to have a safe place to park the Escape Pod when we're not road tripping.
