Thx for the positive comments. It has been a laborious process. We went round and round with how we wanted it to look. All of the early suggestions in this thread (much appreciated) were taken into account and we decided that it needed to be 1) eye-catching, 2) legible... with appropriate focal points being the company name, logo, and URL and 3) true to our style. A lot of thought actually went into it and all the different layers and elements have meaning to us in some way. Wasn't just something we paid someone to do.

For a bit of insight- the "niche" or theme of our clothing company is sort of nature in an urban setting. Hence our crow city logo.

I agree that black rims are the way I want to go, but was probably going to go with new. Black wagon wheels (or similar) can be had pretty cheaply... likely cheaper than powder coating the current rims. Plus they are missing a few of the center caps which I'd need to find.

The road treks are cool, always wanted one of these 4x4 chinooks.
Not as capable as the smaller vans, but comfy inside.
Saw an 80s version a few years back at a ride event, great campers.

+1 on the black wagon wheels. Go 16" with some 275 or so Radial TA's kinda A-team in offset. Flat black the grille, or get a billet one, and a couple fog lights close together in the center.

It'll scream badass then

I can't believe I'm doing this, but this thread has got me going crazy. I just put a truck I've only owned for two years up for sale or trade on craigslist so I can get...a van.



I don't even have the thing paid off yet!

Okey doke! It may be awhile, I'm only willing to trade for something like this with diesel:



And even though I listed a cash price, I don't know what I'd do for transportation until I could find the right van.

Got a bike, haven't you?
Gas goes in the hole, noise comes out the other end, you arrive at work. Pretty awesome.

Actually no. I've been without a bike since I bought my house a year and a half ago. I just like the conversation around here. Someday I'll ride again.

I did do the bike commuting thing on my TE610 for quite awhile when I was looking for the truck I own now. That gets old in the middle of winter around here.
