  1. Would anyone here have a lead on where I could find the passenger model version of a Door Sill Scuff Plate? Since removing the cargo extension from my 2012 XLT, the scuff plate built for a cargo van just isn't right. The front end of it kinda sticks out, doesn't have anything to support it underneath and it just a flimsy piece of plastic when stepped on. I will either need to cut it a bit, or find an elegant way to support it underneath. Any help would be great!
  2. Hello all! I'm finally able to get around to putting up some paneling in my van, after a couple of ideas and prototypes that fell flat. All I really want to do is put of some insulated and noise cancelling panels inserted at the point of the cargo walls where windows would otherwise be. Photo attached I've already glued in some insulation, which has already deadened A LOT of the noise. And I have a couple ideas for how to securely and fasten the wood panels. L-brackets into the body, then lining up holes in the panel to the brackets for threading some stainless steel bolts. Leaving the panels still easily removable. Or I could use some standard plastic body retainers to clip the panels into set brackets. But I've yet to see any simpler way other than throwing them up and screwing retainer blocks into the body on each side of the panel to hold it in. Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Cheers

    Adding a seat to a 2015 connect van

    Figured it out a few months ago. Where I thought the floor and extension were all part of one long piece, turns out all I had to do was pull the seats out again, and the extension came loose right away. It was being held in by the seat's bolts, solely! Now I just need to find a decorative trim for the edge of the carpet line. And the side door step is kind of awkward as its for a cargo van, not a pass van. Maybe I can source a couple at a pick n pull

    Loading ramp questions??

    Late to this party, but for my 2012 FTC I got a 6' foldable ramp. The "EZ Access" one, that you can find on Amazon, and even with free Prime shipping. Folds up & stows away great.

    Adding a seat to a 2015 connect van

    Any updates or photos of your seat installation? Bought a cargo model 2012 TC XLT, dealer bolted in some seats for me so I can use the van both for work & play. But the floor extension leaves NO foot space for anyone riding in the back. There's carpeted flooring beneath the extension that I can see, I'll probably need to investigate myself how easily the extension can be removed. And whether that'll cause issues in preserving mounting points for my backseat :/
