  1. I did the same with my '20 Cargo van, with the addition of 3M Thinsulate in all of the walls, doors and ceiling. Couch unflods into a full size bed.

    What snow tires y'alls running 2010-2013

    Ahhhhh, one of the joys of living where it doesn't snow!
  3. Only 930 miles on them. Pickup only. 375.00 for all four! No TPM's. I'm in Vero Beach, FL
  4. I planned on tapping into either of the 2 fuse boxes on my '20 cargo van until I looked into them. Just taking the top cover off the engine fuse box was a pain, but after looking at the inside I decided that wasn't the way to go. I ended up putting a fused line directly to the battery, leading to a toggle switch for my front DRL's.

    Max fan install location 2020 LWB connect wagon

    I installed the MaxxAir and didn't use that. Instead, I cut 2 14" long strips of 1/4" ABS to run lengthwise in the gutter and 2 2" pieces the the center in the front and rear. They leveled the roof perfectly. Sealant on the top and bottom completed the job, and it's totally leak free.

    12volt and 110V plugs in 2021 TC

    I thought about powering my always-on rear cam but didn't trust the outlets powering down. You can tap into 12v keyed power inside the clamshell on the windshield.

    Adding rear speakers worth it?

    The rear speakers and subwoofer are connected and driven by a separate amp that is connected to the factory unit. I had a local stereo shop tap into the radio and then I did the rest.

    Adding rear speakers worth it?

    I have a '20 cargo van. There are no rear speaker wires, at least not to the rear doors. Maybe there are some behind the side plastic panels. I ran my own wires to the back to the doors, but found the because the depth is so shallow the speakers would have to be spaced out about 1 1/2". I ended up putting 6" x 9"s in my cabinets facing forward and an 8" sub on the bottom. Sounds great!

    Simple bed

    Here's mine. I bought this chair that unfolds into a 6" thick full size bed on Amazon. I didn't want a raised platform due to the low roof height so I installed two 12" x 12" x 30" cabinets on both walls for some inside storage. Also insulated all walls and ceiling with 3M Thinsulate and paneled them using Coroplast with trunk lining carpet. Did the floor with vinyl planks.
  11. Made diamond cut billet pedal covers. Sorry for the picture quality. I'm a pretty crappy photographer. Made billet door sills Made an overlay for the shifter Added an "always-on" rear camera. Mounted the camera on the third brake light.

    Some of the things I've done on my 20 cargo van

    Hard to get a good pic, but I modified the pivoting mount that came with the monitor, and mounted it to an aluminum plate which was the attached to the "clamshell", which is where I found key on power. The camera is mounted on the 3rd brake light.

    Citro├źn Berlingo

    I don't like it at all!

    Some of the things I've done on my 20 cargo van

    I've switched back and forth to no avail. Still just one channel. No big deal.
  15. I pretty much consider it useless.

    Some of the things I've done on my 20 cargo van

    It does, but for some reason it won't work with the 2nd channel. That's what you get when you buy a 27.00 monitor. I'm happy with the rear view only though.

    Some of the things I've done on my 20 cargo van

    Made a new antenna Installed LED DRL's and machined my company logo to replace the Ford emblem
  18. I bought 20 linear feet. I knew it was more than I needed but wanted to have extra. Turns out I have 10 feet left and I was planning on listing it on Ebay. Let me know if you're interested. I did the ceiling, filled all of the door cavities and stuffed it anywhere I could. Made a huge difference. BTW, I also used Noico Sound Deadener under the insulation.

    Allow me to introduce myself

    I bought the lowered spring set from Mod Your Connect in the UK. Installed the rears for a 2" drop, no problem. It really evened it out since the rear was higher to begin with. The front struts are an issue that we haven't tackled yet. Just getting to the struts is a major job in itself. I'll eventually get around to it.

    Installing an RV roof vent/fan

    The Maxair vent I installed requires a 14"x14" hole.
  21. Mine is a 20 cargo van and I finally got a wire thru this weekend following the A pillar instructions above. I didn't go thru the grommet but used a small rectangular hole along side it. When the A pillar is removed you can see light thru to the interior. You can then fish the wire thru and either up to the overhead shelf or down to the dash. Hope this helps.
  22. Mine cargo van was loud too when I bought it, but my intention all along was to insulate all the walls and ceiling with 3M Thinsulate. It made a HUGE difference and noise is no more than a regular sedan. I couldn't be happier with the end result.
  23. Yeah, it's just becomes more of a hassle. I have to say, that as much as I like this van, EVERTHING that I've done has been much more work than it should have been. I keep running into roadblocks for every mod I've done.
  24. I've considered both options. I haven't looked at the interior fuse panel, but I'm told its the same nightmare as the engine fuse box. If I run directly from the battery it means I'm going to have to add a switch and remember to turn it on and off. I've already bought a switch so I'm planning on going that route. BTW, what year is your connect, and does it have the Fuse Box From Hell that the 19-20"s have?
